Jesus said, “Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me” (Mark 9:37). Clearly, Christ placed a high value on kids. At Radius Church, so do we. Every child is a guest of honor. All workers have been screened and had a background check. We use KidCheck to register and keep track of all children during our services. Here is a link to create an account, Kidcheck. If you have any questions, a volunteer will be onsite to assist.
From crazy games and puzzles to active messages, we strive to give kids a great experience. We want every kid to have a great time learning Scripture and having a few laughs along the way.
At Radius Church relationships matter most. In our children’s ministries we want all kids to build a relationship with Jesus, His Word, and with others. We provide opportunities throughout each service for these relationships to flourish.
For protection, every child is to sign in to KidCheck for each visit. You can use the KidCheck station or the KidCheck app on your way into the building. Please download the app onto your phone (this is how we will communicate with you should we need to.) Security labels with ID numbers are printed at the KidCheck station. Put one on your child’s back, one on the diaper bag (for nursery), and keep one with you. The label is needed to pick up your child(ren) If you lose the tag the number will be in the app.
One ID number is given per family. If you have three kids in different areas, they will all have the same number. By having the app, if you are notified you will know which area you are needed in.
On your first visit, parents or guardians should complete all questions including phone and email so we can contact you about pertinent information and special events for Radius Kids ministries. There is a place to list allergies or other special conditions that we should be aware of. We may also have you complete a Nursery Admission Form.

The only persons allowed in the nursery are assigned workers, children under three (3) years of age, and nursing mothers. The door will be kept locked to ensure the safety of the children. If you are a nursing mother and need to use the nursing room, please talk with one of the adult workers and they will let you into the nursing room.
We are using the “GO” curriculum to foster relationships within both large and small group settings. We have age appropriate worship for their age range and from time to time will bring them in with the elementary students for worship. This allows the younger ones to grow in their worship experience with the older kids.
There is a section in the YouVersion Bible app with a synopsis of what they are learning. There is a memory verse, the big idea, and a question to help reinforce the lesson of the day.
We are committed to helping kids grow in their relationships with God and each other. We do this through a number of ways: interactive games, worship, object lessons, and practical teaching. To help parents disciple their children, every week you will find in the YouVersion Bible app a kids corner with that week’s Memory Verse, a synopsis of the message, and questions to help your kids grasp a better understanding of the main truth we talked about in Kids Church. During the service we practice S.O.A.P. (Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer) regarding the weekly memory verse. At the end of service we have a small group time where the kids can ask and answer questions about the message, followed by a time of prayer where the kids pray for one another.
Is a seasonal competition that helps children develop their faith. We meet during the school year on Sunday morning from 9:00 am to 9:30 am. The kids have a lot of fun learning Bible facts and doctrine, memorizing Scripture, competing against each other, and answering questions. One of the benefits of JBQ is that it helps the children to connect with the Sunday Morning message through the questions they learn. JBQ is for all kids ages six through twelve.
The Royal Rangers program is an activity-based, small group church ministry for boys. Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men in a highly relational and fun environment. Boys learn to study and apply what the Bible says about integrity, doctrine, biblical worldview, cultural issues, and manhood. In addition, the Royal Rangers ministry molds boys into lifelong servant leaders -- teaching them vital social, equipping, attitude, leadership, and service skills.
The goal of Mpact Girls is for Christ to impact young ladies in a powerful manner so that they impact others for Christ. This is accomplished through various activities, practical teaching, and mentorship provided by our leaders. Girls develop a heart for service and gain life skills, spiritual disciplines, and biblical principles that influence every area of their life.
Is our midweek ministry to boys and girls ages 3-5. This is an exciting time to help these little ones discover the love of Jesus through the main stories of the Bible with hands-on activities, crafts, coloring pages, and games. We desire for your little ones to experience the love of Jesus in practical and fun ways.
