Kid City is our Sunday morning environment for children ages birth to 5th grade and is offered for all ages during all three services. At Kid City, your children will have the opportunity to learn about Jesus in a safe, fun environment while you are worshipping and fellowshipping.
Where is Kid City located?
At Rivermont, Kid City is located just down the hallway from our sanctuary and main meeting areas. It is less than a one minute walk from the front of the sanctuary to the check-out point of Kid City.

At College Hill, Kid City is located on the lefthand side in the back of our cafe and gathering space.
Are Kid City volunteers background checked?
Yes. They are also required to wear a name tag at all times. If you see a volunteer without a name tag, please alert another volunteer or staff member.

Two volunteers must also be with a child at a time. A volunteer will never be alone with your child.
What can my child expect?
Our youngest children are prayed over, sung to, and given safe play time during the service!

In our 2-year-old through 5th grade classes, we follow the Gospel Project for Kids curriculum. Each Sunday every child, regardless of age, is learning the same Bible lesson at an age-appropriate level. Your child will watch a video lesson created by the Gospel Project and will be led by our volunteers through a discussion, craft, and/or games related to that lesson!

How do I check my child in?
Our volunteers are so excited to welcome you and help you get checked in!  When your family checks-in, you will receive a parent/guardian tag and a name tag for each child entering Kid City from a volunteer. You will need to keep your parent/guardian tag with you in order to pick up your children at the end of the service.

Children’s name tags include their age and any medical notes you have provided. They will wear their name tags the entire time they are in Kid City.
How do I check my child out?
When you are ready to pick up your children, you will show your parent tag to our volunteers. Parent tags are required to pick up children and ensures that children are being picked up by the appropriate party. This is a security measure we take very seriously! 
Do you change diapers?
No, we do not change diapers. You will receive a text message if we need to contact you for a diaper change.

Our second step of communication is that a unique code (on your parent tag given to you at check-in) will display will be displayed on the screen in the sanctuary.our unique code will be displayed on the screen during the service if your child needs a fresh diaper.

How can I continue gospel-centered learning at home?
We love partnering with parents to help kids retain what they learned in Kid City! To help you continue to discussion at home, each child is given an activity sheet to take home with them. These activity sheets have fun games for kids and great discussion starters for parents to use to continue gospel-centered conversations at home. 
When & where does GSM meet?
GSM meets two times a week and we'd love to have your student join us!

On Thursday nights during the school year, students can be dropped off (or walked in, we love meeting parents!) at the rear entrance where a team of volunteers will be available to check them in and walk them upstairs to the suite.

On Sunday mornings, students can meet upstairs in the youth suite at 9:00 a.m. at our Rivermont location (1301 Rivermont Ave.) or 11:00 a.m. at our College Hill location. (1101 Floyd St.).
What can my student expect on Thursday Nights?
Fun, friendship & discipleship!

For the first hour, students will have snacks, play games, and simply hang out and get to know one another.

During the second hour, the students are led in a time of worship, Bible teaching, and small group discussion that is applicable to their daily life. For this reason, students are divided into groups based on gender and age for their small groups. 
What can my student expect on Sunday mornings?
On Sunday mornings, our GSM meets in the youth suite at both locations where we do a topical Bible study designed to mimic what our adult attenders experience in one of our Discipleship Communities.

Topics are different than what we study on Thursday nights and are chosen by our GSM leadership based on the needs and issues facing the youth, including things like identity, apologetics, theology, and more.
