Children

Jesus called the children to Him and said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these."

Luke 18:16

Here at Kirkmont, we believe Jesus values children, so we do too. Your kids, even the noisy ones, are always welcome in our adult gatherings. We also provide several ministries designed just for kids.  

Nursery

Infants - 3 Yrs Old

Our free childcare is available during both our 9:00 and 10:30 AM Worship Services, for the entire service or just part of it.  We have three nursery rooms divided by age: Seedlings 0—23 months, Sprouts 2 year olds, and Saplings 3 year olds.  Our nursery workers consist of a mixture of paid staff and volunteers and all of them see their role as not just childcare but as a ministry.  A typical nursery hour includes free play, interactive play, story time, snack, a craft, and, weather permitting, time outside in our fenced-in play area.  For your convenience and peace of mind, our nursery is located in the hallway adjacent to the sanctuary and can be accessed from the front or back of the sanctuary.

Cry Room

Parents and their Nursery-Aged Children

Our Cry Room is located at the back of the sanctuary and is a great place to hear and see the service but not be heard.  This room is equipped with comfortable seating, toys, a sink, and a diaper changing station.

Kids' Church 9:00 & 10:30 AM

Preschool - 5th Grade

Kids’ Church is available for preschool–5th graders during both of our services, and offers age-appropriate Bible lessons in a fun, kid-friendly environment. During our 9:00 AM service, children will all be dismissed together, and must be picked up by a parent or guardian from Room 125. At our 10:30 service, we invite all preschool–1st graders to Kingdom Kids in Room 130, and all 2nd–5th graders to Kirkmont Crew in Room 125. Kingdom Kids check-in opens at 10:15 AM, and all children must be picked up by a parent or guardian after the service. The older Kirkmont Crew group will be dismissed during the service and picked up from Room 125.
