The Kids Gathering is a place where every child is welcome to GROW and BE – to grow more like Jesus and to sense God’s delight in them as they simply “be” who God made them. Every room is filled with wonder and excitement as kids discover truths about God, themselves and the world around them through worship, storytelling and fun activities.

Check-In & Check-Out

When you arrive, bring your child to the check-in station. If your child is new to the Kids Gathering, we’ll have you complete a profile. Please be sure to include any information regarding allergies or special care.

After your child is checked in, you’ll receive two identification stickers – one for your child and one for you. The parent specific sticker must be presented to gain access to the kids’ area when dropping off your child and again when you pick them up after the service.

Wellness and Safety Policies

For health reasons, we ask that you not bring your child to the Kids Gathering if they have had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Pinkeye or eye infection
  • Colored mucus
  • Any other contagious illness

All of our volunteers are background checked and trained to care for your child. We also keep a strict two-adult rule to ensure that your child is never alone with an adult.

Parent Resources

We’re excited to partner with you in helping to develop your child’s spiritual maturity. It’s natural to have questions and it’s okay to not know what the next step looks like! At LIDE we recognize that we learn from each other. We look forward to dialoguing with you.

Here are some resources we’ve found to be helpful for parents who are just starting out, as well as those who have been around the block a time or two.
