We value children and see them as a gift and blessing from God

At our Sunday Gatherings, we have a children’s program so kids can have fun and learn about Jesus in an age-appropriate way. We want children to both enjoy themselves and grow in knowledge and understanding.

Upon arrival there will be a CityLights Kids table with a volunteer there to check-in kids in and answer any questions. After checking-in you can bring your kids into the Gathering space with you. Towards the beginning of the Gathering, kids will be dismissed and the CityLights Kids team will lead them to the designated kids area.


What to expect for your kids?

CityLights Kids is continuing to develop and grow! Currently there is:

NURSERY 

For Parents and caregivers to feed, change, cuddle and play with their infants.  This room is located off of the main foyer.  There is a window into the main gathering space and a speaker to ensure nothing is missed…well that’s the idea anyway…

CITYLIGHTS TOTS – 6 months – 2 years

The Green Room on the lower floor is set up for CityLights Tots.  Your little one will have the opportunity to play, sing songs, hear a short story and have a small snack.  Parents are welcomed to enjoy the gathering, or to stay  – whatever works for you and your family.  All designated volunteers have had Criminal Records Checks and gone through the Plan to Protect Process. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us! 

CITYLIGHTS KIDS 2 – 8 years 

The Blue Room is where we begin our time with CityLights Kids!  

Each week there is a lesson and activities that are all about Jesus!  The kids will learn that God Loves them, God Make them, and that Jesus wants to be their best friend forever.  All our content comes from the First Look Curriculum which ties in songs, crafts and activity to the main theme of the story each week.  There is also a monthly bible verse which is reviewed each week using  different activities.  We love our kids and desire for them to love Jesus and His Church.  We pray that our time together increases each child’s faith and builds a foundation of who God is and who they are in Christ.  

Upon arrival you will be greeted by a CityLights Kids Ambassador who will sign your child in, an.d answer any questions your may have.  If there is anything we can do to serve your family, please let us know

 


We value the safety and comfort of your child.

Kids activities occur in a designated kids area. We also have a policy of “team teaching” for our CityLights Kids team, meaning that a team of two volunteers always leads children. All volunteers go through an application process, do criminal record checks, and receive input on safety guidelines.

We aim for kids to enjoy themselves in a safe and secure environment while also giving parents the freedom to have their kids engage as they are comfortable.

If you have any questions or concerns about a volunteer or the CityLights Kids program, do not hesitate to contact us.
