Kids

We salute you, Mom and Dad! You’re doing an amazing job raising awesome human beings, and we would love to help. At Faith Kids, we don't see ourselves as a place for you to drop your kids off once a week, but as a resource to come alongside you on your parenting journey and offer support as you introduce your children to the God who can change their lives. Come visit us - we can't wait to meet your family!

ENVIRONMENTS


Downtown (Infant - age 5)

Your young children up to age 5 will love spending their Sunday mornings in Downtown. Each room, from the infant nursery to the toddler and preschool environments, is designed with age appropriate toys and activities to keep kids safe and busy. Loving leaders will introduce kids to the love of God with a weekly curriculum starting at age 2. Downtown also includes a nursing room where moms can feed, change, and cuddle their babies while watching the service on a TV screen. Just stop by Kids Check-In to request access.


Uptown (K - 4th grade)

Modeled after the exciting landscape of NYC, Uptown offers fun, engaging themed spaces for kids in kindergarten - 4th grade to gather and grow. From the interactive shopping space in Chelsea Market (kindergarten) to the fun and games of Central Park (1st-2nd grade) and built-in dodgeball zone in Times Square (3rd-4th grade), Uptown is a place where elementary kids love to come back week after week. In addition to fun and friends, kids in Uptown will also be introduced to a relationship with Jesus through dynamic worship, video teaching, and small group time with caring leaders.

CHECKING IN

Faith Church uses a secure child check-in system to keep kids safe. Every time you check in, the system will generate a random code that is printed on your child's nametag and your security tag, which ensures that your child will only be released to you. The system also keeps real-time records of which kids are checked into which classes at all times, so in case of an emergency we can make sure all kids are accounted for. Finally, it provides easily accessible emergency contact information for each child. It's quick and easy to check in your kids:


If it is your first time...

Stop by the Faith Kids Check-In desk located inside the East Entrance. A Check-In volunteer will guide you through the process and help you locate each of your kids' environments. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before the service starts in order to allow enough time to register your kids and get to the service. After your first time checking in you will be able to use any of our self check-in kiosks.


If you are registered...

You can check in yourself at the touchscreen kiosks, located in the Center Commons, directly outside of Uptown and Downtown, and inside the East Entrance.

Picking up your children

Uptown and Downtown are both located in secure, locked areas. Faith Kids volunteers are stationed outside the doors and can assist you in entering the areas to pick up your kids. Be sure to bring your security tag, which the classroom staff will match against your child's tag in order to release him/her to you.


What if your child needs you?

A common question new parents have is how they will be contacted if their child needs them. We primarily contact parents via text message, so please keep your phone accessible during the service. If you don't have a cell phone with you, please stop by the Kids Check-In desk to borrow a pager.




WORSHIP TEAM

We would love to have your K-4th grader join our kids worship team! We'll email you the motions every month to practice at home. Whenever you come to church, they can wear their special worship team t-shirt and join the worship leader on the stage. Team practices are held 20 minutes before each service. Just come whenever you're able - no schedule, no commitment, just fun!
