what to expect
It can be a bit nerve-wracking walking into a new church, especially if you have young kids. We want your family to have an amazing and comfortable experience here at Good News, so you can count on the following:
Each Good News Kids team member loves the Lord and will love your kids!
Your child will have a fun, interactive, and rich learning experience about Jesus, the Bible, and who they are in Christ.
Safety is really important to us, so check out below for more details on how we keep kids safe while they're in our care.
Toddlers: 2-3 years
Pre-K: 4-5 years
(not in Kindergarten)
Our staffed Gated Community is open during church service for children aged 6 months to 2 years. During this time the babies will engage in play, snack and a Bible lesson taught through engaging song and play.
A Nursing Moms Room is available for moms needing to change and feed their babies. Additional changing tables can be found in both the men's and women's restrooms.

What a typical Sunday schedule looks like for kids.
Before church, kids aged 2 through 5th grade have access to play in Recreations Outlet before gathering on the Basketball courts for Large Group worship.
During Large Group worship the kids enjoy the Bible being taught in fun & creative ways, they can worship with songs, and can give to our GNKid’s mission project.
After worship, kids will then be grouped by age as they dive deeper into God's Word. This is a time when kids can participate in lesson-reinforcing activities such as games, prayer, crafts and group discussion. Kids will also be offered a snack during this time.
At GNKids all of our volunteers are required to pass a background check. Upon checking in, you and your child(ren) will also be given matching stickers. To help maintain safety, volunteers may ask to see your sticker at pick-up and ensure they match, so that we are connecting families properly.
ALL children and their families are important to us. If you are a family of a child with special needs we eagerly desire to create an environment that is conducive to the their unique needs.
Please reach out to our Director Kerry Smith, to begin a conversation about ways to go about making worshiping at Good News Church work for your family's needs.
