KidsMin at CityLife Church

At CityLife Church our kids (ages 3 to 13) 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 CityLife KidsMin.

Your first visit

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

First, find the area marked CityLife KidsMin. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room. It is an electronic check-in system for safety, and you will receive a tag that will enable only you to pick your child back up. 

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

After a few worship songs: You can check-in your child at the main children’s check-in in the hallway next to the sanctuary. Again, it is a really easy and safe process.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

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.
