The purpose of this page is to equip you with the right tools to fulfill your purpose through City Kids. On the weekly basis we will provide updated resources for small groups, praise & worship songs, and curriculum.
"Worship One, Serve One" is our motto. You can only give what you have received.

Make effort to learn all of the MOTIONS before Sunday! Don't forget to SMILE on stage! You have the privilege to show every kid in the room just how much FUN it is to worship God!
MESSAGE RECAP & SALVATION PRAYER
Watch the message AT LEAST ONCE beforehand. This way you can come prepared to give an ENTHUSIASTIC and brief recap when the video ends. After your recap, you will guide our kids through the ABC's of Salvation! This is the HIGHEST honor you can have as a leader!
SMALL GROUP LEADER
It is imperative that you read through the Small Group Guide AT LEAST ONCE before Sunday! It is your responsibility to keep the kids ENGAGED! Make it as FUN as possible!
You are the one responsible for watching the door at ALL times! Position yourself to be near (not directly next to) the door. You are responsible for enforcing bathroom procedures (1 at a time) and making sure no one wanders off. Remember that you are still an example! Participate as much as possible, especially during worship!
ROOM PICK UP & PARENT GREETER
This time is so important to communicate to parents how their child is connecting in City Kids. You can share a moment that happened or something they learned during the service. Ask the parent their child's name and call the child's name for dismissal. Be aware that children will try to run out of the room before their name is called. Always remember to make sure each child receives a prize and first time guests receive their gift bag. :)
