Our mission is to partner with parents as they love and lead their kids into a life-changing relationship with Jesus. We put a lot of energy into creating safe and fun environments where kids will experience Biblical truths and practical life applications. Through age-appropriate interactive lessons, energetic worship, small groups, and activities, kids will learn that loving God is cool.
What to expect
Every weekend your kids have an opportunity to experience God in a fun, multi-sensory environment tailored to their individual age and development level. Your kids will love going to Church!
Safety is one of our highest priorities. Every time you check your kids in you’ll receive a unique parent identification tag that corresponds to your child’s tag. Additionally, we maintain high security standards with child safety ratios, training, and background checks for every CR First Kids Team member.
Creative Bible Teaching
Bible stories and spiritual truths will come to life through skits, multi-sensory activities, and discussions. It’s our goal that kids learn to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
Age Specific Environment
Our environments and lessons are tailored to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of each group. We believe kids learn best in circles and not in rows.
When kids have a blast at church, they can’t wait to come back! You can be sure that your kids will have fun each week as they learn about who God is.
Your First Visit
If it’s your first time bringing your kids to CR First, don’t worry…we’ve taken care of everything! Just head over to Guest Check-in, located in the Family Lobby (Enter through Doors 3 or 4). We look forward to meeting your family and helping you get set up with our check-in system.
During registration, we will ask for the following information: family member’s names, children’s birth dates and grades, address, phone number, and any special instructions for your child (allergies, medical conditions, special needs). This helps us make sure your kids are safe while you’re enjoying the service! Once the registration has been completed, a host will show you and your child to their age-appropriate room.
How Check-in Works
If your family is already registered in our system, just head to the self-check-in station located in the Family Lobby.
You will simply enter your 7-digit phone number into one of the kiosks. After selecting your child’s name on the kiosk and checking them into the appropriate age group, you and your child will be given matching check-in stickers for that service. Your sticker will be used as a pick-up ticket, and your child’s sticker will be used as a nametag. After service, you’ll return to your child’s room and show your pick-up ticket. A child will not be released to their guardian without presentation of their pick-up ticket.
If we need to contact you during the service, the identification number on your pick-up ticket will appear on the digital screens located above the doors to the left and right of the sanctuary stage or via text. Just swing by your child’s room with your pick-up ticket and speak to the room leader.
If you have young children and would like to watch the service with them, we have a family viewing room that has toys, rocking chairs, changing table, and a live feed of the service. This room is located in the early childhood hallway.
Nursing Mothers Room
If you have a newborn, we have a nursing mothers room that is located off of the family room with a live feed from the sanctuary and rocking chairs. We also have an area located in the Women’s Restroom off of the Main Lobby, which has comfortable chairs, changing table, and a live feed of the service, as well.
Every Wednesday night at 6:30 PM, your kids will learn more about God’s Word in age-specific environments with games, hands-on activities, and incredible leaders. Your kids are bound to have an amazing time!
