What is Gateway Kids?

Gateway Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind! Kids (birth through 4th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level! 


We desire for each child to experience a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We also value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their small group leader and other children within the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow!

Age Appropriateness

We are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a way they understand. Our environments are divided by age and lesson materials are created based on the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional needs of each child.


We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an interview and background check and every hallway is monitored with security personnel. Visiting us for the first time?

Creative Bible Teaching

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.


Who doesn't love fun?! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus.
