Kids Clubs

We love hosting Kids Clubs in neighborhoods all around our community! 

Hosted by Gateway members, children are invited to join us for all the fun and excitement. We’ll hear Bible stories, play games, create art, and enjoy fun snacks. There is no cost to attend one of our Kids Clubs, they are open to all children who have completed K – 5th Grade.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose behind Kids Clubs? Share the hope of Jesus with kids in our community!

When and where will this take place? Parks all over our community. Check out the map here.

Who will lead? The church! Each location is led by church members. If needed, members will be placed on a team that is in need of workers. This is a great way for families to minister together in our community.

What age group is this for? We are opening each VBS to kids that have completed Pre-K-5 grades. This is open to all children. Gateway kids are encouraged to attend one this summer and be missionaries in their community!

What about kids younger than Pre-K age? Each team can get creative on how to include or care for their younger preschoolers. We encourage parents to attend with their younger preschooler. For leaders kids, this is a great opportunity to begin teaching them about ministering together.

How do I register children? Online registration will be available for each site as dates are announced. If there is not a Kids Club in your neighborhood, consider having your kids go to a neighborhood where their unchurched friends are and invite them to come!

Are there any upcoming trainings? Yes! Watch for news about a Kids Club Rally each year. If you miss out, one of the Kids Club Leadership team members will be happy to meet with you.

    I just wanted to know the ages for the summer back yard stuff. I have a 4 year old boy and a 3 year old girl.
    Thank you for this, I’m with them 24 / 7 and would love just 15 minutes of quiet and relaxation. They also would benefit from the socialization with kids.
