A fun place for kids to learn about Jesus!

About City First Church Kids

We put a lot of energy into creating safe and fun environments where kids can learn about Jesus! It’s a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand-in-hand. It’s a place where loving God is cool!

Our Kids staff and volunteers are the best. You can rest assured that your children will be loved and well taken care of while you enjoy the service.

We think church should be fun for kids, so we’ve created experiences that are a blast for children of all ages! Your kids will participate in fun activities and crafts, energetic worship, and storytelling with other children their age.

Your First Visit!

If it’s your first time bringing your kids to City First, don’t worry…we’ve taken care of everything! Just head over to Kids Guest Registration (near our coffee shop) and we’ll meet your family and register you into 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.

Register online and save time!

You can make your first visit a little easier, by registering your kids in advance. On Sunday, when you visit Kids Guest Check-in, our Kids Team will confirm your registration and guide you to the appropriate room.

How Check-In Works

If your family is already registered in our system, just head to your child’s classroom where we offer a fast and convenient check-in procedure.

You will simply enter the last 4 digits of your phone number into one of the kiosks located in your child’s classroom. After selecting your child’s name on the kiosk, 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. Just swing by your child’s room with your pick-up ticket and speak to the room leader.
