CHILDREN

Discovery Land is our Children's Ministry program that includes AWANA and Sunday DL. Our Staff is eager to work with your family to lay a solid spiritual foundation for your children. We recognize safety, quality Biblical education, and kid-sized fun is critical to making your child's visit to Discovery Land not only memorable but life-changing. Check us out on Sundays during service or Tuesday nights for Awana.

We've got big news! Discovery Land is back in-person on Sunday mornings starting Oct. 4.

SUNDAY

The goal of Discovery Land is to equip children from birth to 6th grade with Biblical truth to apply to their lives. The fun begins right when you walk through the doors with energetic worship, hands-on activities, games, and more. Registration is free and visitors are always welcome. Please review our plans to safely welcome your children to Discovery Land.

FAQs

Can I stay with my child?

We welcome you to stay with your child to observe. Simply stop at the DL Desk and they will be happy to assist you. Because we value your children’s safety, we strictly monitor who is in the Discovery Land facility during our learning sessions. A driver's license will be required to acquire a parent lanyard.

Do I have to be a member to bring my kids to Discovery Land?

No, you don’t have to be a member. Everyone is welcome in Discovery Land!

How old does my child have to be to come to Discovery Land?


Discovery Land offers Sunday programs for children 6 weeks through 6th grade. Our Tuesday night Awana programming is for children 2 years before 5 year old kindergarten through 6th grade. To learn more about our youth programming for students 7th grade and older, please visit our Student Ministries page.

How will you notify me if my child needs me?

All children and parents preschool age and under will receive wristbands with matching numbers during our Sunday and Tuesday programming. When parents are needed on Sundays, their specific wristband number appears on the screens in the Worship Center. Parents should go to the DL Desk to connect with their child if their number is put up.

Is there a fee for Discovery Land?

Our Sunday program is free of charge. 
Our Tuesday evening Awana program has a cost associated with registration, which covers books, fees, uniforms, etc. The costs are listed on the registration.

What do you do for safety?

Some procedures we have put in place are:

  • Children preschool and under and their parents receive wristbands with matching numbers. When children are picked up, the wristbands are removed by an adult leader after confirming the numbers match. Please note the parent with the matching wristband is the only one allowed to pick up their child.
  • Students K-5th grade must be picked in their classroom by an adult immediately following the service. To ensure your child’s safety, older siblings are NOT allowed to pick up students.
  • For your children’s protection, screenings and background checks are run on all Discovery Land staff and volunteers.
  • The doors to Discovery Land are locked ten minutes after service begins so classes may move around in a secure environment. They are unlocked to allow parents in for pick up after all classes are back in their classrooms.
