Everything we do for your 1st-6th grader is designed to provoke discovery, inviting kids to live out their new understanding of how to grow in a relationship with God and with others. As much as we strive to have a godly impact on kids, we are well aware that God’s original (and best) plan is for parents to be the spiritual leaders of their children. God calls parents to teach their children His Word and to tell their children about all the good things the Lord has done. The Lord sees the home as being the primary place of instruction and learning. But we know busy schedules can make this difficult. Our desire is to partner with you as you lead your family and to provide you with tools to make the lessons come alive at home. If the family and the church partner together to grow a child’s faith, just think of the impact this could make! We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our ministry and to browse the variety of other resources we have available.


Sundays in Kid City

Kids express themselves differently than adults, so we offer a unique program for your 1st through 4th graders on Sundays. Your child will attend worship with you at 9:15 or 11:00am and then join us in Kid City the other hour. You’ll drop your child off in Powerhouse where they’ll kick off their morning with music, games, and a large group lesson. Then they’ll break into small groups with other kids their age and gender for Bible study and fun activities that will help your child grow.

Your preteen isn’t quite a teenager yet, and they don’t learn the same way as a young child anymore, so we have a special schedule just for your preteen. We offer Bible study classes for 5th and 6th graders at both 9:15 and 11:00am in B118. That way, preteens can attend worship with their parents during either worship hour.

Wednesdays – GLOW

GLOW (Go Light Our World) is for 1st-6th graders on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm in Kid City.

GLOW is designed to connect what kids learn on Sunday morning with how they live the rest of the week. Kids will have opportunities to put into action various biblical lessons through service projects, active Bible study and evangelism.

Each month will be themed with a “virtue” like self-control, generosity or hope. This will be the same virtue the 1st-4th graders are studying on Sunday morning. To ensure the kids are learning at the appropriate level, they will be divided into two groups: 1st-3rd grade and 4th-6th grade.

Each child will need a current medical release form on file in order to go participate in any off campus service projects.

Building Young Leaders

We want to make sure your 10-13 year olds are growing as leaders at Connection Point, which is why we have KidLead on Wednesdays twice a year.

It’s challenging to find a balance between developing our kids’ talents while still maintaining unstructured playtime and relaxation. Activity for activity’s sake isn’t necessarily healthy, but investing in programs that really benefit kids long term are valuable. KidLead is uniquely designed for parents who want to assist their children in developing their leadership aptitude. Most leaders don’t have the chance to do this until after college, between the ages of 25-35. Imagine the head start you can give your child with 10-20 years of experience by the time most are just starting their formal leadership training. KidLead also includes parent training so that you, as a parent or guardian, can develop your child’s leadership ability informally, in daily interactions. Plus, research indicates that our moral compass is pretty much set by age 14, which means that if we’re going to teach ethics in the context of leadership, we’d better do it earlier than later.

JBQ is an opportunity for your kindergartener through 6th grader to learn more than 500 Bible facts and hide God’s Word in their heart. Quizzers meet weekly on Sundays at 4:00PM and compete in quiz matches with other churches one Saturday each month September through March.

Safety & Check-In

Kid City classes are located in secured areas. An electronic key card is required to enter these areas (Raytown Campus). If you do not have an electronic key card, see the check-in volunteer for assistance.

You may check your child in at any check-in computer in a Preschool or Children’s area. After checking your child in, you will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. The child’s tag also contains the parent’s cell number as well as additional information such as allergies.

After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you. Parents may choose to send their badge with a family member or friend (9th grade or older) to pick up their child.  

In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a call or text message. Please turn your phone to vibrate in the service so that we are able to reach you if needed. 

Children who have shown signs of fever, vomiting, or other contagious illness should be symptom-free for 24 hours before coming to Kid City.

If a child develops a fever or other symptoms of illness while in our care, parents will be contacted as soon as possible. 

Please note that we are unable to administer medications.  


Every Sunday, our volunteers show up and work together in their unique roles to create a fun learning environment for our kids. Kid City is completely run by volunteers. We could not exist without their leadership. Visit our serve page to see opportunities at all of our campuses.

Required: All Kid Ministry volunteers are required to complete a background check and application to ensure the safety of our children.
