Our kids’ programs are for infants through 8th-graders

We have an AWESOME kids ministry! When you arrive, ask one of our greeters where to take your children. They will direct you to a room where volunteers can help check your children in. We have rooms for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, elementary, and middle school aged children. Of course, if you feel more comfortable, parents are welcome to keep their kids with them during the worship service.

We make every effort to ensure the safety of children at Tree of Life Church. Childcare volunteers have approved background checks run through law enforcement agencies. We value the safety of every person who walks through our doors!

Nursery & Toddlers

Nursery and toddler rooms are provided for use by our church volunteers. Each parent is required to sign their children in and out of the nursery or toddler room each Sunday. The sign-in/out sheets are on a clipboard in the individual rooms. We have made this a practice for the safety of all our children.

In addition, a number will be assigned to each child. If the child needs assistance to go to the restroom or to have his/her diaper changed during the service and the volunteer has not been given permission by the parent to take care of the child’s needs, the child’s number will be given to the person at the computer in the sound booth. The number will then be flashed on the corner of the screen to alert the parent to proceed to their child’s room to care for their needs.

Each parent is requested to complete an information sheet regarding their child/children in an effort to provide the best care and learning environment for all children.

Preschool (3-5 years)

TLC presents a fun, interactive way for children ages three to five to begin their journey with Jesus. Designed to appeal to preschoolers and their learning style, this age group integrates both free play and a structured learning curriculum. We provide a safe and clean environment in which the children can sing and play. We follow this schedule:

  • Play
  • Clean up
  • Song & Story Time
  • Craft Time
  • Snack Time
  • Play

Elementary School (K - 4th)

Our kindergarten through 4th grade children are dismissed from the sanctuary after our corporate worship service and proceed to our large group room. A curriculum is presented by our Large Group Leaders over an eight-week period beginning with opening activities of lessons with the same theme. The children then go to a designated area and are taught by our teachers and helpers to build upon the opening activities presented. In conclusion, the children once again benefit from review and closing activities with the Large Group Leaders.
Parents or a designated individual are asked to report to the Large Group Room to pick up their children immediately following the adult church service. Each parent is requested to complete an information sheet regarding their children in an effort to provide the best care and learning environment for all children.

Middle School (5th - 8th)

Kids in the 5th through 8th grades are released to their classroom after the offering is taken in the sanctuary. A pre-teen ministry curriculum is presented with open discussion about relevent topics that this age group faces.
