Building strong foundations for a new generation of Spirit-led leaders.
THIS WEEK'S LESSONS
Is your child curious about what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus? Then sign your family up for KidFaith! KidFaith is an intentional class for your child to learn what it means to follow Jesus on their level and what the symbol of baptism means before taking their next step. We ask that all kids 7th grade and under journey through this class before being baptized at Waymaker.Church.
Our next Child Dedication will take place later this year. If you are interested in participating in Child Dedication, please fill out our interest form!
YOUR FIRST VISIT
From the moment you pull in the parking lot, you’ll notice lots of friendly faces eager to show you the way.
Your first stop when you arrive is the first-time families check in area. We want to serve you and your child well, so we’ll take some time to get to know you. We’ll ask about allergies, make sure we know what your child likes to be called, and collect your contact information.
Then, you and your child will both get a sticker with a matching code. If for any reason we need to reach you during service, you’ll be given a pager that vibrates and you can come to the first-time families check in area. This sticker is also what you’ll use to pick-up your child after gathering.
Parents, we know this is a season of questions and uncertainty. Our goal is to provide fun and engaging content for your family that will help your child go to new and deeper places with Jesus as we weather this storm.
We encourage you to make the most of this time by equipping yourself and your kids with the truth of the Scripture – the sword with which we fight our battles. Let’s watch God take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it into good beyond our wildest imaginations!
If there is anything you need in this season, please let us know.
We are so excited to have you join us for the first time! Here’s what you need to know:
• Turn on your flashers when you arrive to get up-front parking.
• On your way in, be sure to stop by our New Here Tent! Our team will show you where to go.
• At the First-Time Families Check-In we will gather basic information in our secure system.
• Let us know you're coming so check-in is quicker for you and your child!
HOW CHECK-IN WORKS
We take the safety of your child very seriously. That’s why we have Campus Safety team members stationed at key areas. We also background check each World Changer that serves in WAYKIDS.
When you check-in your child, you will receive a security tag. One will be a sticker that your child will wear, the other is one for you to keep. Only the person with the security tag can pick up your child.
If we need to contact you during service, we'll text the phone number you provided at check-in to let you know what's going on.
AGES AND ENVIRONMENTS
4 weeks old - 4th grade
4 weeks - 23 months
God-sized prayers and audacious dreams play huge roles in your baby’s foundations. In Dreamers, we read stories, sing worship songs, and pray big dreams over their lives that are organized around monthly themes.
2 years - Pre-K
The preschool stage is all about discovering new things in life. Each week your toddler will explore truths about who God is as they uncover new stories and engage in fun and age-appropriate content.
Kindergarten - 4th grade
The elementary years are when kids begin to step into their wiring and become their own person as God has designed them. Each week your child will learn about what it means to be a warrior for God through engaging and relevant teachings, worship, and small groups – all while having the most fun of their week!
This environment is designed specifically for kids with special needs. Through your child’s love, personality, and the affection God has for them, they bring, create, and make joy wherever they go.
If you are planning to attend a Sunday service soon, please fill out this early registration form! This will allow our team to prepare for your child so we can care for them as soon as you arrive to the First Time Families Check-In.
