Your First Visit

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

First, as you enter the Connect Kids wing, you'll walk into our Check-In area. There, we will meet your family, help you check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room. To get your kids into the system ahead of time, CLICK HERE (make sure that one of the parents enters their info FIRST.)

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone)

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birth date
  • Childs grade (If applicable)
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How Check-In Works

Before Service: You can self check-in your child at our kids check-in station by using the last 4 digits of your phone number. You may also PRE-CHECK IN using the Church Center App. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given 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, return to your child’s room and show your tag 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 auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
