CityWave Kids is a place where children, babies to 5th grade, are welcomed and loved by our community. Our biggest desire is for children to know and experience God and make life moves with him. During CityWave’s weekend gatherings, we provide an inspiring, creative, and nurturing environment for kids to grow in this way. Children are welcomed into CityWave Kids any weekend during our main worship gathering at 10am! Parents simply need to visit the CityWave Kids check-in area in the lobby, and our team will help you get started.

CityWave Nursery

In the CityWave Kids Nursery, your newborn through 2-year old will be nurtured, loved, and cared for in a safe and playful environment. Creating a sense of wonder, play, and relationship are important to us, and so is creating a safe place to give parents peace of mind as they attend the CityWave worship gathering. We believe children are never too young to learn about Jesus, so our volunteers will speak about Jesus, pray for kids, and read Bible stories.

CityWave Early Childhood

Children ages 3 years through Kindergarten will encounter God and learn more about Jesus in an engaging atmosphere. The Sunday morning experience will be age appropriate and will consist of large group praise music, Bible theme teaching, arts and crafts, and fun activities. These young, concrete thinkers will learn how following Jesus makes a difference in their lives and the world around them. Early childhood kids will start to experience their faith with others and learn how deeply Jesus knows them and loves them personally.

CityWave Elementary

Children from 1st grade through 5th grade will learn to connect with God and learn more about living for Jesus through an energetic and interactive approach. The Sunday morning experience will consist of a dynamic multi-media presentation, uplifting large group praise music, Bible theme teaching with small group interaction, games, arts, and activities. Your 1st through 5th grader will learn how to apply God’s Word to their real-life issues at home, school, and in friendships. They will be introduced to living their life with Jesus and challenged to express big faith in the world.

Check-in

Kids are welcome anytime at CityWave Kids! Parents can follow the signs to the kid’s check-in area in the lobby or ask guest services. Check-in starts at 9:45am and CityWave kids start the same time as our main gathering 10am running until 11:15am. Check-in is easy as 1-2-3!

  1. At the CityWave Kids check-in area, a volunteer will help you fill in your child’s information.
  2. We’ll print off an ID tag, one for your child and one for you to present after the gathering when you pick up your child.
  3. Drop your child off at their room to be welcomed by CityWave Kids leaders.

Pick-up

After the gathering, simply return to the room your child attends and present your ID tag and be on your way! For your children’s safety, we do not allow kids to leave their perspective rooms during CityWave Kids or allow them to leave without the appropriate matching tag.
