What to Expect...
We know bringing your children to a new place can be stressful sometimes-our hope is to make Kids Venue a great experience every time you come!
When you get to The Venues, head to the west hallway to check-in your children at the computer kiosks. Your first time, you'll be asked to fill out a short form with some basic information to help keep your child safe as well as send them a welcome gift in the mail! If you'd like to fill out the card ahead of time, please click HERE.
All Kids Venue areas open at 9:15 a.m. so you won’t be late for the 9:30 service, and at 10:45 a.m. for the 11:00 service. Children birth through pre-Kindergarten have fun in the upstairs classrooms. Kindergarten-2nd grade students worship, learn, and have fun in the Kids Venue Basement. 3rd-5th grade students worship, learn, and have fun in the Kids Venue Mobile Classroom. All 6th-12th graders participate in Students Venue in their own Mobile Classroom.
After checking in at the kiosks, head to your child's classroom and sign them in on the class roster in case we need to contact you during service.
When service ends, please head straight to Kids Venue to pick up your child(ren). Be sure to keep the parent tag for pickup as it should have the same number as your child’s name tag. If you do not have your parent tag, we may ask you to wait a moment so we can verify your identity and relationship-we take your child's safety seriously!
NOTE: Any volunteer who serves with children or youth under the age of 18 has completed and passed a background screening.
May 12th is Mother's Day in Kids Venue! All Kids Venue children will share a special Mother's Day message in the main auditorium at both services on Sunday, May 12th. Children do not need to be present both services, feel free to choose whatever service works best for your family.
Promotion Sunday is May 26th! All elementary children will "promote" to their Kids Venue room for the 2019-2020 school year! Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd Grade students are in the Kids Venue Basement. 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade students are in the Kids Venue Mobile Classroom. Students who will be in 6th grade during the 2019-2020 school year will promote to Students Venue! Children ages birth-preschool will continue to change rooms on their birthday until they enter Kindergarten.
Kids Venue Get-Together on June 9th! Save the date for a Kids Venue & Students Venue Party on June 9th from 5:00-6:30pm at Drexel Swanson's house. This will be a fun time of sand volleyball, games, and food-stay tuned for more details!
