What You Can Expect

Upon arrival, you will find a KidsPark Greeter at the check-in desk. Parents are given a sticker with a number that corresponds to the numbered sticker each of your children will also receive. As you wait for service to begin, children are welcome to enjoy a small play area in our lobby, the Commons. Children join parents in the sanctuary during worship, and are then released to classrooms upstairs – always accompanied by a KidsPark volunteer to help guide the way. Snacks and juice are provided at the start of class.

Class Basics

Classes are structured by age/grade:


Preschool - age 3 to Pre-K meets in the Green Room

Early Elementary - Kindergarten to 2nd Grade meets in the Yellow Room

Elementary (3rd Grade to 5th Grade) meets in the Blue Room

In each classroom you will find a Lead Teacher and Teacher’s Assistant. We currently have 14 volunteers – serving in the both the classroom and as greeters at the check-in station. Through worship songs, crafts, Bible teaching, and related activities, KidsPark teachers are committed to sharing the life-changing love of Jesus. Here, children have an opportunity to develop their faith, share God’s love with one another, and build lasting friendships!

Our Approach


Because children in this age group are constantly exploring and learning, our goal is to offer plenty of activities like crafts, songs, and games. Every Sunday, our Preschool children learn about Jesus through fun and engaging activities that present the Bible story while they move around, explore, and play! The curriculum each Sunday includes Bible Story Time, with related songs, hands-on crafts, and activities that reinforce the story shared. Lessons are led by a Lead Teacher and a Teacher’s assistant.


Early Elementary and Elementary

Our goal is to create a classroom experience where your children can grow closer to Jesus and come to know Him. The curriculum each Sunday will focus on scripture memorization, engaging Bible stories, and life-application activities. Children leave with take-home activities to help the entire family get involved in practicing what your children has learned in KidsPark. Each classroom will have a Lead Teacher and a Teacher’s Assistant (depending on the number of students in attendance).

Our Commitment

Jesus loves and values our children, and wants to show them His love! We are committed to creating an atmosphere where your children feel safe, comfortable, and cared for always. In addition to criminal background checks, every KidsPark volunteer is required to attend an annual training which covers safety in the classroom, best practices, and Child and Youth Abuse Prevention. We would be happy to connect with you to answer any questions or concerns you have about our volunteer screenings and training process.
