Kids Ministry at CityLife Church

At CityLife Church our kids (infant through 8th 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 CityLife Kids.

Your first visit

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


First, find the area marked CityLife Kids. 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.

Sung Suh

I joined City Life in the summer of 2018 and quickly knew that I wanted to be part of Children's Ministry. Now I am excited to be part of Children's Ministry in a much bigger way. I have grown up in Church all my life so I believe it is so important to teach children early on about God's Love.  I will continue to help show and teach God's love to the children and hope that their faith will grow. I want them to feel excited to come to Church.

Kody Lothrop

Kody moved from Seattle to Jersey City in 2014, and was welcomed into CityLife so immediately that he has called it home ever since.  He has been an active volunteer in children and youth ministry since high school, and has developed a passion for helping young people to understand that they are cared for even when they feel lost. Outside of CityLife, he is a Learning and Development Manager at Jet.com. Kody lives in the downtown area of Jersey City with his wife Gloria and he is excited to see how the Lord will continue to work in and through CityLife.
