We love and value kids! Step into a world of adventure in the KidZone. This is the Sunday environment for children, ages birth through fifth grade.
CenterPoint KidZone exists to
On a Sunday morning, your first stop will be at KidZone Check-In Kiosk. You will be assisted by one of our volunteers who will help you use our computerized check-in system. They will also be abel to help you find answers to any questions you may have. We encourage you to arrive 15-20 minutes early on your first visit to make sure you have enough time to feel comfortable and make it to the service on time.
DownTown KidZone - 9AM & 10:45AM is where we come alongside parents with children ages birth to 3 years providing a warm, welcoming and safe place for their children while they attend our morning services. Kids in DownTown are split into three separate groups on the first floor: Nursery, 1's & 2's, and 3’s.
UpTown KidZone is our 9AM environment for kids who are from 4 years-5th grade. During the month of August we'll be having All Together Sundays. Kids will be with their parents in the service, but be sure to pick up an activity and treat in the worship center lobby prior to the start of service. Uptown will be fired back up on September 10th to start the new season of ministry.
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. KidZone Check-In. Your first stop on a Sunday morning will be at the KidZone 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 KidZone 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 KidZone 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. KidZone has a security team on Sunday mornings. Fifteen minutes after the start of each of our morning services the hallway doors leading to our KidZone 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.
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 KidZone environments a try. We hope to create an environment in KidZone 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 KidZone registration desk.
Are snacks served to the kids during the services?
Due to allergy issues and in order to use our KidZone 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.
