How we serve your family!

Our Awaken Kids Team believes in the value of teaching God's Word at the earliest ages. Our children, 2-years old through 5th grade are taught the Bible at an age-appropriate level using worship, hands-on activities, visual aids, large group teaching, and games; while our infants and walkers experience the love of Christ through worship and play.

Safety and Check-In     Meet Our Team



In our infants and walkers classes, children will be cared for by loving team members. We will read and sing to them about God’s love as we tend to their needs and enjoy free play. Each week, your child will be sent home with a small form that shares about their time at Awaken.

Safety and Check-in

Your child’s safety is our first priority. All Awaken Kids Team Members must pass a background check and attend an orientation before entering our classrooms.
Each classroom has direct communication with the Awaken Church Security Team who patrols our campus to ensure your child’s safety as well as the safety of anyone coming on the Awaken Church campus.
We use a printed security tag system for child check-in and pick-up. Each parent sticker has a unique number that matches the number on the child sticker. Children are not released unless a parent sticker is presented.
We have 2 locations for you to check-in your child: Kids Central (located between the North and South Venues) and Kids Corner (located next to the Socialside, in the Kindergarten foyer).
On your first visit, please visit the VIP/Connect Tent located in front of the North and South Venues to check your child(ren) in.
