Kids Love Our Church
Our goal in C3Kids is to introduce our kids to the real Jesus at each phase of life. From the moment you drop off your child to the moment you pick them up, they experience safe, age-specific environments designed with them in mind. Every weekend, we discuss one Biblical truth through Bible stories, illustrations, games, worship, and a time for Small Groups. We encourage you to ask your kids what they learned in church this week!
What will my child learn at C3Kids?
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written, and we strive to bring its stories to life through creative activities and discussions that keep kids engaged. We want every child to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. We know they’ll have fun each week as they learn about who God is through games, activities, small groups, and video teaching.
Will my child make friends at C3Kids?
Absolutely! Our room environments and lessons are designed to help your child grow with kids in the same age group. We’re passionate about supporting them in each stage of life, so we provide C3Kids options from birth-5th grade during all of our weekend experiences. Students in 6th-12th grade are invited to our Thursday night youth experience, Catalyst.
When you commit to attending the same service each week, your child will be surrounded by a small group full of familiar faces. As kids build relationships with leaders and other children, they gain the support and confidence to grow in their faith.
How do I check my kids into C3Kids?
On your first visit, look for the C3Kids’ Guest Services area. If you can’t find it, one of our pastors or team members will be happy to help you!
At Guest Services, you’ll be welcomed by a C3Kids team member eager to meet your family and show you how C3Kids works. To check your child in, we’ll need some information at that time, including a family member’s name, your child’s name and birthday, your address, your phone number, and any special instructions. We’ll be there every step of the way, right up to when you drop your kids off at the appropriate room, so feel free to ask questions!
How does C3Kids ensure my kids are safe and secure?
In C3Kids, safety is one of our highest priorities. That’s why we have a secure check-in system. Upon check-in, you’ll receive matching identification stickers. Your child will need to wear their name tag sticker and you will need to keep the matching tag. After the service, you’ll show the C3Kids leader your matching tag in order for your child to be released from their room.
Every C3Kids team member is screened, participates in a background check, and receives appropriate training from our staff. Additionally, our hallways are monitored by background-checked security during each experience to make sure your child stays safe and secure.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we can either send you a text message or share your child’s identification code on the screen in the auditorium.
My child has special needs, is there anything I should know before I bring them to C3Kids?
If you have a child with special needs who might need a little extra support to participate in C3Kids, we’d love to partner with you to make their experience amazing! Just complete this form to let us know.
A Word from Our C3Kids Pastor
Hi there! My name is Chris McKinney and I’m the C3Kids Pastor here at C3.
Starting as a teenager, I’ve had the privilege of serving kids for the last 20 years. God has done so many great things as we show kids the love and message of Christ. My wife Katie and I are native to Washington state. We love Jesus, road trips, camping, hiking, seeing new and historic places, and spending time together as we enjoy nature.
We’ve had so many great experiences along the way as we’ve helped kids meet Jesus at each phase of life. God has been good to us and we continue to see God working in and through each child. We have an amazing team and God continues to bless us as we equip others.
Thank you so much for visiting our website and we look forward to meeting you this Sunday.
