Safety

We take safety and protection of our kids seriously. We follow established policies and procedures to ensure safety and security.

Parents are given a parent badge that matches their child's when checking in. When a parent or guardian is picking up their child, we will verify the identity of the parent and matching name tag before releasing the child.

All volunteers must complete a criminal background check and a volunteer application. All volunteers check in and are identified with a volunteer name tag.

Our Children's wings are secured and can only be accessed by our team during services.

Volunteer

We have dozens of volunteers every week who are helping shape the lives of the kids in our community. If you want to be a part of helping these kids learn about Jesus and his kingdom, just click the Volunteer card below.
