Storyside Kids

Developing a passion for God

Through exciting worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with him. Our children’s services are fully staffed with adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. You can be confident that your child is well cared for and having a great time learning about God at the same time you are. Storyside Kids is available during all of our weekend services, with doors opening 15 minutes before our services.

We believe that the stories in the Bible are exciting, worship can be really loud, and God’s word can impact your kids greatly at any age. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick with them:

  1. I need to make the wise choice.
  2. I can trust God no matter what.
  3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated

Each class is designed with these core values in mind:

  • Relevant Environments. This means that the environment is safe, creative, and eye catching to children and parents.
  • Engaging Presentation. This means that each of our environments have their own curriculum. We also make sure we have music and events that are designed to be relevant, fun, and engaging for each child.
  • Consistent Relationships. This means that each child will be exposed to a lot of the same teachers, small group leaders, and other children which will produce excitement in attendance and comfort in community once they arrive.
  • Biblically Focused. This means that everything we do will be focused around teaching biblical truths and showing them how to live out those truths as they walk through life.
  • Family Minded. This means that we try to view everything we do as an opportunity to team up with parents in order to help raise your child with a strong spiritual foundation and a strong moral foundation as well.
  • User Friendly. This means that we want your experience here to be comfortable and easy for to enjoy.

Will my kids be safe?

All of our Storyside Kids staff and volunteers undergo reference and background checks, as well as orientation and training prior to serving.

How do I check my child into Storyside Kids?

You may be wondering where to go when you arrive on one of our weekend services. Outside of the Storyside Kids hallway, you will find a team of people ready to help you to the right place. Our check-in team will greet you, guide you through the registration process, and personally escort you to your child’s classroom. They will be happy to answer any questions you have about Storyside Kids.

What if my child has been sick during the week?

To attend Storyside Kids, a child must be free of fever and the symptoms of a viral infection for a least 24 hours before they attend a weekend service.
