 Children's Ministry Check-In

 Where do I take my child on Sunday morning?


If you are visiting for the first time, stop by Guest Services in the lobby where one of our volunteers will tell you about our Children’s Ministry and will register your kids. From there they will take you and your children to the correct ministry area.

Check-In for Regular Attendees:

Go to one of the kiosks in the lobby to check in all of your kids using your key tag before taking them to their ministry areas.

First Steps (birth-4 yrs) check-in times for our Effingham campus are 8:30-9:00am for first service and 10:15-10:45am for second service. Check-in for our Newton campus is 9:15-9:45am.  The rooms are locked after these times in order to keep your kids safe and to avoid interruptions during the lesson.

Check-in is quick and easy with your assigned key tag. Just swipe it under the scanner, and your child’s information is ready to go! Your child’s nametag and a parent tag will print out. Parents with children birth through 4th grade please put the tag on and bring it with you to pick up your child after the service.


To get a key tag mailed to you, fill out a registration card

at Guest Services or at one of the

Children’s Ministry check-in areas.
