Kids Ministry at Gateway

At Gateway our kids (infant through 3rd grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

We would love to see you and your family visit KidMAX.

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
Proverbs 22:6

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting KidMAX for the first time:

First, find the area marked for Kids Check-In. It's in the back right side of our lobby. There, we will meet your family and check your child in. Children ages 0 - preK can be checked into the nursery/toddler room at this time. Kids Kindergarten - 3rd grade go into the sanctuary with you to enjoy worship together. Kids are dismissed to their classes after worship. You are welcome to walk them back or let them walk back on their own. Our volunteers will be there to greet them.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

・Parent/guardian name(s)
・Child's name
・Child's birthdate
・Home address
・Phone number
・Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at the station located near the back right side of the lobby, at any time. After supplying the information for check in, your child will be given a name tag to wear with their assigned identification code.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to the KidMAX area and check out your child with a leader before they are released.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
