Sterchi Kids

Helping parents build a strong foundation of faith in their children.

We strive to walk alongside families to help raise up a new generation of disciples of Jesus Christ. We firmly believe that no child is too young to know how much Jesus loves them!

Sterchi Kids is for children ages 6 months – 5th grade.

We make safety a priority by offering a check-in system with exclusive parent identification security tags, trained safety teams, and volunteers who have passed a comprehensive background check. We have a system in place to contact you during the worship service if needed.

We give our absolute best to your children each Sunday to keep them safe and show them the love of Jesus! We are honored and feel very blessed to care for and teach them.

Just as Jesus stated, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the Sterchi Kids Wing Open?

We’re excited to welcome your children in both our 8:30am + 10:30am services. We have age appropriate curriculum for children ages 6 months to 5th grade.

How Do I Check My Child In?

Once you enter the Sterchi Kids wing, you’ll be greeted by one of our volunteers who will assist you with check in on an iPad. If you’re a First Time Guest, you’ll be given a tour of the Sterchi Kids wing to become familiar with where your child will be and the curriculum we teach.

When Can I Check My Child In?

For the 8:30am service, check in begins at 8:15am.

For the 10:30am service, check in begins at 10:15am. 

What Safety Measures are In Place for My Child?

Upon check in, each child will get a label with a code that is unique to them. The parent(s) will receive another label with that same code on it for pick up. When you’re ready to pick up your child, you’ll present your label to our staff and you’ll be allowed into the appropriate hall.

All of our volunteers have received a comprehensive background check and gone through training before serving in Sterchi Kids. Additionally, each room is under surveillance so you can know your child is safe at all times. 

We also take in special needs, allergies, or any other accommodations that your child may need. Our staff communicates these needs with each other to ensure everyone is aware and ready for any situation that may arise.
