Opportunities for Early Risers

We're a kid friendly church at Arise and we want parents and kids to feel comfortable with wherever and however you choose to worship. If you want your kids to join you in service, that's fantastic! If you want them to learn in our kids ministry, that's great! Whatever you choose, we want to support your work as a parent in raising kids who know and love Jesus.


At Arise Kids, our children (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. We can't wait for them to join us!

Your First Visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Arise Kids for the first time:


First, find the area marked for first-time families. There we will meet your family, explain how check-in and checkout works, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.


Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information:

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children


NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone.

How Check-In Works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any check-in kiosk or using the Planning Center app (we'll explain this to you during your first visit). After checking in, you and your child will receive matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.


After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to the kid’s check-in area and show your tag or app in order for your child to be released back to you.


During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the worship center immediately and look for a volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
