JUST For Kids:
We want kids to know -- that God is with them, wherever they go!
Gateway Kids Club
Gateway Kids Club is a Christ-centered club for boys and girls ages pre-K through 6th grade. We meet twice a month on Friday evenings from October through March (check the church calendar for scheduled meeting dates/times). With fun songs, Bible exploration time, games in the gym and a Pine Car Derby to wrap up the year, your kids won't want to miss it!
Childcare / Nursery
We offer childcare in our separate nursery rooms -- one for infants and another for toddlers (through age 3). The nursery rooms are located on the lower level of the church building. Childcare is available both during Bible School classes and Worship Services. The nursery is generally staffed with 2 adults and at least 1 teenage helper. There is a sign-in and sign-out process for the security of your children and we use a paging system to contact you if the need arises.
Coordinators: Roseanne Munn, Lynn Schmidt
When the opportunity arises, we like to extend Nursery School into a Summer Camp program. Typically offered through the month of July and held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9am-12pm. Kids will have the freedom to use the learning centers in our Nursery School, do fun crafts, enjoy stories, snacks, and of course play lots of games!
Nursery School for 3 & 4 Year Olds
Gateway Nursery School is a great place to prepare your 3 or 4 year old for their learning journey with a Christian foundation. We believe children learn best through play and that's why we have 12 interactive learning centers. Our facility includes a gym and an outdoor playground. The school staff are some of the most fun and caring people you'll meet -- it's no wonder our past students rave about their experiences here. Become part of the family today!
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Each summer during the first week of August, Gateway's Vacation Bible School comes back! It's a great recreational, Bible-based summer program offered in the morning for kids in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Stay tuned to find out what this year's theme will be...!
VBS Director: Vicky Rauschkolb
Sometimes kids just don't want to sit still. We don't mind it, but we know it can be a bit distracting for you. Before the message at Sunday morning Worship Services, we dismiss kids ages 4 through 5th grade to join Children's Church where they hear an age appropriate Bible lesson, which sometimes includes a craft, and snacks are always a must!
