We love and value kids! Step into a world of adventure in CP Kids. This is the Sunday environment for children, ages birth through fourth grade.
Recognizing the lead role of parents, CP Kids exists to inspire, equip, and release both parents and kids to live and share a life changing relationship with Jesus.
On a Sunday morning, your first stop will be at The Check-In Kiosk located on both CP Kids levels in our building. You will be assisted by one of our volunteers who will help you register or use our computerized check-in system. They will also be able to help you find answers to any questions you may have. We encourage you to arrive 15 min early on your first visit to make sure you have enough time to feel comfortable and make it to the service on time.
CP Kids – DownTown @ 9 AM & 10:45 AM
We are excited to come alongside you, the parents, as well as your child ages birth – 3yrs in DownTown. This is a warm, welcoming, safe place for your child while you attend one of our worship services. Kids in DownTown are split into three separate groups on the first floor: Nursery, 1’s & 2’s, and 3’s. Our 3 year old class gets the first opportunity to travel through the Bible using our
Gospel Project Curriculum.
CP Kids – UpTown @ 9 AM
UpTown is our 9am environment for all kids ages 4yr to 4th grade. Kids will have the opportunity to experience what it means to grow in relationship with Jesus through worship as a large group followed by grade level small groups, activities, games, worship, and more.
What measures are taken to provide safety and security for my children?
CenterPoint uses a couple specific measures to help ensure a safe and secure environment.
1. CP Kids Check-In. Your first stop on a Sunday morning will be at the CP Kids Check-in. You’ll be guided through a simple process to register your child. They will receive a name tag with an ID number and you will take a matching sticker with the same ID number. When you pick them up from their room at the end of the service, a CP Kids volunteer will check their tag and your sticker to make sure the ID numbers match. Only the adult holding the ID tag will be able to pick up your child.
2. All CP Kids volunteers go through an application process which includes a background check. They also receive training on best practices for creating a safe and secure environment.
3. CP Kids has a safety team on Sunday mornings. Fifteen minutes after the start of each of our morning services the hallway doors leading to our CP Kids areas are locked. We are a downtown campus and want to make sure that only approved individuals are in any rooms with our children. Doors are reopened at the end of each service. In addition to the safety team, all kids areas are equipped with security cameras.
What if I want to keep my kids with me during the service?
While kids are certainly welcomed in the service, when you are comfortable, we encourage you to give our CP Kids environments a try. We hope to create an environment in CP Kids where your children will love to attend and return each week. Not only does it allow you the chance to grow with a few less distractions, but it also gives your child the best opportunity to learn and grow in an environment created specifically with them in mind! Ultimately the choice is yours, but if we can do anything to assist you further let us know.
How will I know if my child needs me during the service?
Your child’s ID number not only helps us with security, but it also serves as subtle and simple way for us to request your assistance with your child. If you are needed during the service, the ID number of your child will appear on the bottom of the screens at the front of the Worship Center. You may also choose to receive a text message if you are needed. Please make sure that you leave your current cell number at the CP Kids registration desk.
Are snacks served to the kids during the services?
Due to allergy issues and in order to use our CP Kids time most effectively, we do not serve snacks during the services. Occasionally there is a special treat. Parents will be notified prior or the treat will be given at the end of the service in order for parents to approve before it is consumed.
What if my child requires special assistance?
Let’s talk about it! Before attending a service at CenterPoint you are welcome to email Stacy, our CP Kids Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. She would love to hear from you. Knowing ahead of time helps us to be able to care best for your family.
