At Lake City, we place a high value on investing in kids. You’ll find strategic, age-appropriate environments and small groups for every kid from birth to 5th grade.
At Lake City Kids we have three goals:
- Every child feels loved
- Every parent feels supported
- Every person plays a role.
What to Expect During a Weekend Gathering
Check In / Check Out
As you enter the Kids building lobby, you’ll find iPad check-in stations. Check-in opens 15 minutes before each gathering and closes 20 minutes after the gathering starts. Make sure you grab the pickup tag! You’ll need it to pick your child up!
If for any reason, you are needed to return to your child’s classroom before the end of the gathering you will be paged by the Kids Team. We’ll page you in TWO ways. 1. The displays right under the screens at the front of the auditorium: These will display a 3 digit code that matches the PICKUP TAG that you received when checking in your child. 2. Text message: You will receive a brief text message requesting that you come to your child’s classroom.
Safety is one of our Core Values for Lake City Kids. During weekend gatherings the Kids Building will be locked 15-20 minutes after the gathering starts and unlocked when the gathering ends. If you need access to the Kids Building during that time (you need to check out early or you have been paged) please go to the Info Desk and they will call one of the Kids Staff members to help.
Family Room / Fireside
We recognize that on some days your little one just isn’t going to go into one of the environments, but you still want to catch worship and the message! There are two spots for YOU! The family room is on the north hallway of the main building and has a monitor showing the gathering, some toys, rocking chairs, a changing table, and some privacy for you and your little ones. Feel free to use this family-friendly space!
Also, next to the fireplace, we have some super comfy couches, a tv monitor, and a little play area with toys and books for your kids to occupy themselves while you catch the gathering. Grab a cup of coffee, make yourself comfortable and hang with the kids while watching the message!
