Where the adventure begins...
Sunday at 10:45 a.m. - Check-in opens at 10:30 a.m.
Kids Quest is a place for kids to grow in their relationship with Jesus. Fun activities and relevant teaching is done in a safe and caring, kid friendly environment. Once checked in, kids go directly to their age/grade appropriate classrooms .
Because we value security for your kids while they are with us, all kids, baby-5th grade, are checked in by a parent or guardian at our kiosks located at the Kids Quest entrance. Friendly greeters will welcome and assist you through the process. We provide name tags for kids and claim check receipts for parents or guardians that share a unique identification code. Check-out is done at each kids classroom. The claim check receipts are matched to the kids name tags to ensure kids are dismissed only to authorized individuals.
Visiting Kids Quest ? We can set up you and your kids in our system in advance to streamline your check-in process. Submit the form below by Thursday prior to the Sunday that you visit. A confirmation email will be sent when set up is complete.
Cell phones should be set to vibrate and if a parent is needed at any time during the service our kid-care team will text or call the number listed for a parent to return to the classroom.

Well Kid Policy:
We want to ensure that kids stay healthy when they visit. Your kid needs to be free of the following symptoms for at least 24 hours: fever over 99 degrees, persistent coughing, any discolored, runny nose or eyes, unusual fatigue, vomiting, complaints of stomachache, inflamed throat, swollen glands, earaches, rash (expect diaper rash) and diarrhea.
Because we value kid safety, our Kids Quest is a peanut free environment and all adult kid-care workers are background checked. Kids Quest entrance door will lock from the outside once services start.
Toddlers: The Bible App for Kids was created to engage kids, 2-3 years old, with Jesus and the Bible.
