Grown-up church is for grown-ups. Kid-O-Deo is for kids.
Through partnership with parents, we want kids to learn to be lifelong followers of Jesus. We teach kids about God in a way that they will understand. Kids have fun, feel safe, build relationships with others and learn that God loves and accepts them.
What To Expect
In Kid-O-Deo, we teach kids in groups based on their age and divide them into two areas:
We help even our youngest kids become familiar with Bible stories and learn about Jesus' love for them. We provide kids with a place where they feel safe and cared for and can begin to learn how to trust God and others.
Preschool kids enjoy large group learning and group time discussion. In large group, kids sing songs, hear Bible stories and learn more about how God wants us to live. In group time, they meet with other kids their own age and are guided in activities, lesson review and questions with a group leader.
Safety & Security
We go to great lengths to make sure your child is safe with us. Every weekend at Kids Check-In, your family is assigned a random, three-digit alpha-numeric code that is on the child’s name tag and your security tag. This same code will be displayed in the auditorium in the event that your child needs you. You will use your security tag to pick up your child in Kid-O-Deo after the service.
Your child is joined by incredible volunteers who want to ensure that each boy and girl has a fantastic experience in Kid-O-Deo. All of our volunteers have been trained and screened with background checks to verify their level of quality and character.
Tools & Resources
We believe that what you do at home is far more influential than what we do once a week in Kid-O-Deo. Use these tools and resources to help your child grow in their faith every day.
TOOLS FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS
We want all of our kids to remain healthy and happy, so we ask that kids be kept at home with any of the following symptoms and/or illnesses: fever, active chicken pox, runny nose, measles, questionable rashes, mumps, coughing, conjuctivitis (pink eye), diarrhea, fifths disease, impetigo, sore throat, vomiting.
If a child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming to Kid-O-Deo.
If a child has continually clear runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies, please let us know.
We have trained, background checked volunteers who come alongside kids with various special needs, ages birth-grade 5, so they may participate and enjoy God and others to their fullest potential within weekend kids’ services.
