The Second Place perspective on kids and parents.

You’ll hear the phrase “Home First” alot around Second Place. That’s because we believe parents are the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life (Deuteronomy 6:1-12), but we believe the church is a partner in helping parents succeed in that role. As a church, we will do our best to bring God’s Word to life at every age level.

What to do on Sunday morning...

To register your children on Sunday morning, come to the east side of the Warehouse. Our staff and volunteers will assign your child[ren] to their appropriate room[s], and they’ll give you and your child[ren] matching numbers...a safety precaution and a means of contacting you during the service if necessary. Registration begins 30 minutes before each gathering (8:30AM for the 9:00AM gathering and 10:30AM for the 11AM gathering).

What your kids will discover at Second Place Kids.

The Kids at Second Place program offers age-appropriate classes for children birth through 6th grade.

  • The Backyard is open for children birth to 24 months old the entire service.
  • The Park is open for children 2 to 5 years old the entire service.
  • The Clubhouse is open for children Kindergarten to 4th grade after opening worship concludes in the Warehouse. This provides a great opportunity for parents and children to sing songs together and for parents to model for their children how and why they worship God through music and offering.
  • *The Crossing is open for 5th and 6th graders after opening worship concludes in the Warehouse during the 9 am service on 2nd and 4th Sundays. This age group eases into participating in the adult service by engaging their faith with peers twice a month and as a family twice a month.
  • The Backyard | Age 0 to 24 months old

    In the Backyard, infants will discover God’s love through the care of their teachers. The children will be rocked, held, played with, comforted and prayed for. Music, stories, even art will be used to tell the littlest one’s how deep and wide God’s love is for them.

    The Park | Age 25 months to 5 years old

    At the Park, pre-schoolers will experience the stories of the Bible in an engaging and fun way...through blocks, art, music and even science. They’ll unwrap the truth of God’s Word in a chronological order, and begin to lay a foundation for when things in the Bible happened.

    The Clubhouse | K to 4th grade

    The Clubhouse allows school-age children to engage with the adventures of the Word of God in a practical way. They will go through the Bible chronologically, putting into order some of the stories they’ve heard in the past and adding some new hidden treasures yet to be discovered by them in the Word. They will do this through discovery centers, intentional teaching time and journaling.

    The Crossing | 5th & 6th grade

    The Crossing acknowledges that tweens are maturing, but may not be ready to process the adult service individually. The Crossing (which meets during the 9 am service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays) teaches a Bible lesson where the kids engage with it throughtout the service. We want them in with the adults the other two weeks so they do learn to individually process spiritual truths. We've found this eases the transition for them into youth group (7th-12th grade), and they don't struggle with being in the adult service.

    The bottom line...

    Please know that as the parent you determine what is the best way for your child to grow in their relationship with Christ. If you would like to have your children in the Warehouse with you, you are free do so.
