Visitors will sign in and their children will be given 2 name tags – 1 to attach to the back of child’s shirt and 1 for their diaper bag. In addition, parents are assigned a pager in case they are needed during the service. The pager will also act as their “claim ticket” when they pick up their child.
Preschoolers – 5th grade – Go to the Cornerstone Kids’ lobby. Parents sign their child in on the sheet next to their names which are listed alphabetically by last name. Continue down the hallway to your child’s classroom. (exception – Sunday morning 4th/5th grade – go directly to West Kids’ Hallway to their classroom)
*If your child has a food allergy, please communicate with us on the sign in/out sheet
Babies & Toddlers – Go to the Nursery counter where 1 child at a time will be checked out. Pager must be returned before a child is released.
Preschoolers – 5th grade- Return to the Cornerstone Kids’ lobby. Parents sign their child out and receive a card which is given to the child’s Kids Church Teacher. This lets the teacher know that the child has been signed out.
*Sunday morning 4th/5th grade option: Parents have the option to sign a waiver stating that they give their permission for their child to sign himself/herself out. Ask the 4th/5th grade teachers or the Kids Registration Table for the form.

SATURDAY NIGHT Service (6 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.) referred to as “Saturday Night Kids”, is currently for K-5th graders and uses the same format as Sunday Night Kids, and uses the same lesson as the “ALPHA” service.
1st service SUNDAY (9 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.) referred to as “ALPHA,” has a traditional Sunday School format, emphasizing the use of God’s Word and building relationships as they talk about their lesson for the day in fun and creative ways (see curriculum).
2nd service SUNDAY (10:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) referred to as “OMEGA”, has the same focus as Saturday Nights and ALPHA, but has a different lesson from the Sat Night/ ALPHA lesson, but tying in the same monthly theme . One thing different in “OMEGA” is that at 10:45 a.m., all of the kids K-5th grade, come together for praise & worship in the “King’s Court” (taken from Psalm 100). King’s Court lasts about 20 minutes. Following King’s Court, kids return back to their classes to talk about the lesson for the day.
SUNDAY NIGHT Service (6 pm- 7:15 pm) referred to as “Sunday Night Kids” and uses the same lesson as the OMEGA service. This K-5th grade combo class begins in the main Worship Service together as a class to participate in the time of Worship, then goes back to their classroom.
