At Kid's Alley we have dedicated leaders with a passion for teaching children about God's love in ways that connect and make sense to them. Each week kids discover God through family involved worship, fun games, entertaining stories, and creative crafts. Lessons are presented through the Hands-On Bible Curriculum where kids experience the same powerful connections between Scripture and everyday life by engaging all five of their senses. The Bible comes alive!
THE HANDS-ON BIBLE CURRICULUM IMPACT
“ I love when we do an activity and the kids say something about how it connects to the topic we have been studying. It makes me realize that they are looking for and making connections that they will take into their own circumstances. ”

We provide a safe, nurturing space where infants and small children will be cared for allowing parents to be able to fully engage in our worship service. We are trained to provide diaper changes and bathroom breaks. We have a large, clean, and safe area for children with plenty of engaging toys.
Your growing child will enjoy being invested in by the teachers and helpers in our Youngers classroom.
Kids will be engaged and challenged to hear, read, and experience the Bible as they have fun and meet new friends.
We recognize that your kids are precious to you and we have taken every measure to ensure their safety. Each Kid's Alley leader and volunteer have a cleared background check on file with New Journey, and have gone through our volunteer training. Upon arriving each parent will check-in their kids at our check-in station. We have a check-in team that helps families sign in as they come to worship at New Journey. Our greeters point new families in the right direction so that they know where to check in and our check-in team walks them through the process and makes sure they know where their classroom is.
Personalized labels are printed off for children and parents for each Sunday service after check-in is complete. If your child does not go directly to their classroom upon entering our worship experience their label will be located in their classroom so that when you arrive they will be given to you and your child. Since both kids and parents receive a label parents will need to bring their label back when kids are picked up.
Each child receives a printed label with a unique code that changes every week. Both the child’s and parent’s code will be the same so that when you come to pick up your kids the teachers can match up the codes and be sure they are releasing kids to their parents. This creates a layer of safety for your child, which is why it is important to keep your label throughout service.
It is our policy that only parents are allowed to check their kids in and out on classrooms. Siblings, other friends and family will not be permitted pick up your kids. In addition, we ask that you wait at the entrance of the classroom when checking kids in and out to reduce the traffic within the classroom. We seek to simplify the pick up process for our teachers so that they can be aware of when each kid is being returned to parents and that they are not leaving the classroom without supervision.
When you check your child in for the first time you are prompted to give us a cell phone number. This is important in case your child has an urgent need while attending Kid's Alley as we try to reach you through the phone number you listed with us. If we you do not have a cell phone to reach you then their assigned code appears on the projector screen in our worship service to notify you to check on your child. If you child has an allergy or a special need, please be sure to let our check-in team know so that they can display it on their check-in label and make the teachers aware. All of our Kid's Alley volunteers have had basic special needs training.
