Gateway loves our kiddos! We look forward to loving on, caring for, and teaching your children about God in a way that is relevant and relatable to them. Our volunteers are background checked and we offer a clean, safe, fun environment for children to learn and thrive in. We want kids to know they are created with a purpose, loved beyond measure, and designed for a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Every Sunday morning we offer Classes & Childcare for:


Nursery ages:  3 months to 1

Toddler ages: 2-4

Children ages: 5-11 (K-6th grade)


Please sign kids in after worship (11 a.m.) in the adjacent Legacy Center portable (Kids Church Building). Parents need to check out children after service.
