Kids Ministry at New Life

At New Life our kids (ages 0-12) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. We would love to see you and your family visit New Life Kids.

What can I expect?


We have increased sanitation measures, and are requiring volunteers to wear face masks and have temperature checks. We are also merging our ages 3-5 and ages 6-12 classes into a single class in a larger classroom to allow for social distancing, and limiting the capacity of our Nursery.

Your child is welcome to wear a face mask, but it is not required. While checking in, children will receive a temperature check. If your child or a family member doesn't feel well, we encourage you to continue teaching your children about Jesus using previous lessons from New Life Kids Online. You're a part of the New Life family no matter where you choose to attend!


First, visit the New Life Kids Check-In Kiosk in the lobby. There we will meet your family, add your child to our secure system, and check your child in. While checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information:

  • Parents' and child's name and birthdate
  • Parents' email address, phone number, and home address
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs, etc.) for your child 


Before Service

You can check in your child at any available New Life Kids Check-Ins Kiosk. Enter the last four digits of your phone number to find your family, choose each child that is checking in, and the system will print one name label for each child and a matching security label for you. Your child will need to wear their name label while you hold on to the security label.

During Service

Your child will remain with you in the sanctuary until they are released at the end of the announcements portion of the service. Our volunteers will help lead your child to their classroom.

If for some reason your child does not go to their classroom at that time, please return your child's name label to the New Life Kids Check-Ins Kiosk so that we can make sure your child is accounted for.

In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child's identification number will appear on the projection screens. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and go to the New Life Kids Check-Ins Kiosk where a volunteer will direct you to your child's classroom.

After Service

At the end of service, you will go to your child’s classroom and show your security label to the teacher to have your child released back into your care.

  • Ages 0-2: Nursery
  • Ages 3-5 and 6-12: Epicenter Classroom

Mom and Baby Room

New Life Kids offers childcare during every service for babies (ages 0-2), but we also have a Mom and Baby Room that is available for mothers with babies. This room is reserved exclusively for mothers to feed and change their babies while enjoying the service in a more private and quiet environment.
