Resonate Kids is a place where your child can explore God on their level every Sunday. We don't see this environment as child care, but rather the community where our kids learn about and experience Jesus for themselves. We have a variety of ministries based on age, so each child can have a safe, fun, and exciting place to learn about God's love!
First Time Visitor?
New to Resonate or just visiting? No problem! We ask that on your child's first encounter in Resonate Kids, you fill out some basic information about you and your child at the Resonate Kids check in table. This will let us know important things like allergies or special needs and will also let us learn how to best meet the specific needs of your child.
0 - 24 MONTHS
This is the place where our youngest Resonate kids start encountering God. Through loving volunteers, your child will receive the attention and care that will help him or her feel at ease during the worship service. Our staff is prepared to love and meet the needs of your child. Your little one will have freedom to play in a safe and secure environment allowing you to enjoy the worship service. Our workers are dedicated to providing the best possible care for you and your child.
2 - 4 YEARS
In this class, we begin to teach our pre-school aged kids the basics about God. Together with their leaders, the children will worship, have an age appropriate lesson and a hands on application based on what they learned. Our volunteers make sure each child receives the attention and care they need in order to begin grasping the promises of Jesus.
5 YEARS - 2ND GRADE
Together with their leaders, the children will worship, have an age appropriate lesson and a hands on application based on what they learned. Our volunteers make sure each child receives the attention and care they need in order to begin grasping the promises of Jesus.
3RD - 5th Grade
This class continues your children's journey from hearing about God to exploring Him for themselves. Each week these kids will worship in the main sanctuary with the adults and then head to their class where they investigate Him through an energetic and fun atmosphere. Jesus' love is taught not only through lessons, but also from the caring relationships our volunteers develop with every child. Your child will play exciting games and learn Biblical truths through crazy skits and funny stories.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is with my child?
Every person serving in Resonate Kids serves because he or she has demonstrated a love for children and an understanding of the responsibility that is required in caring for them. Each volunteer goes through a background check, a training orientation, and is supervised by a ministry leader.
What is the procedure to drop off and pick up my child?
We have taken several steps to ensure the safety of your child. A volunteer will greet you at a sign-in table at the entrance to the ministry. He or she will take your name and your child's name. Your child will be given a name tag and number and you will be given a matching tag and number that you will be asked to show when you came back to pick up your child. You will also be asked to write down any pertinent information regarding your child, such as allergies or special needs. You are welcome to escort your child into their ministry area so you can see the class and meet the other teachers.
What if my child is upset?
Many children have initial separation anxiety but calm down very quickly. If your child remains upset for a prolonged period, someone will come get you.
What if there is an emergency?
Each ministry area has emergency exits and volunteers have been trained to take the children outside and meet the parents at the front of the building. Each ministry also has a first aid kit for minor problems.
What will my child do while I'm in church?
Every week volunteers prepare a variety of activities for children to explore God on their developmental level. The children enjoy music, crafts, skits, prayer, games, snacks, stories, and much, much more. Most importantly the children establish relationships with volunteers who care about them and are willing to invest in these children so both the volunteer and children develop a stronger relationship with Jesus.
