“Creating a place that kids love, so they can experience a loving God, and live out their purpose”
Our goal in Motion Kids is that through our age appropriate teaching, worship, activities, and small groups, your kids will fall in love with Jesus and develop their own personal relationship with Him. Each week our goal is that kids would leave knowing that church is fun, God loves them, and He has an incredible purpose for their life.
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. Our environments and lesson materials are created in a way your child will understand. We are so passionate about kids learning this way, that we encourage all parents to not bring children into the church service which is designed for ages 6th grade and older. We want you to rest assured that your child is having the time of their life in Motion Kids while you have the freedom to worship and receive the word at service.
We know that one of the first things that crosses a parents mind is, “will my child be safe”? We take the safety and security of the children at COM as upmost importance, and make sure every base is covered to ensure this. Our Motion Kids volunteer’s love children, and they all go through a very careful screening process that includes training, interviews, and a federal background check. We also have security personnel that monitor the Motion Kids environments.
We believe God has entrusted his precious children to us, and therefore, we pay attention to every detail. We see nothing as insignificant; all decisions are made prayerfully and with precision. Our Motion Kids staff/leaders show up every week prayed up, prepared, punctual, and ready to give the best they have. We value clean, attractive, and organized environments, which are prepared with each child in mind.
We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.
Kids love fun! Kids are all about fun! It's their occupation in life. We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and live acting. Jesus wasn’t boring or dull, and his church shouldn’t be either. We want kids to grow up knowing that they can have fun at church, and that it is fun to follow Jesus.
At Motion Kids, we love and empower kids to become the leaders in their generation that God created them to be. We are passionate about providing environments where kids are taking their next step in their walk with Christ. We believe there are no limits or restrictions to what’s possible for kids who are filled with the Spirit of God.
We want to do everything we can to empower the parent(s)/guardians(s) to create a godly home and raise their child up God’s way. This is why we encourage parent involvement in our Motion Kids ministry, and the reason we send home resources that families can do together throughout the week. We also try to provide frequent family friendly events, where families can have fun together.
From start to finish, we strive to make your families’ time with us a great experience! We seek to make this your child’s favorite day of the week. We use skilled volunteers, technology, fun activities, and excellent environments to communicate the love of Christ on a level they will understand. While you are in the main worship experience, your child will be participating in a worship experience especially designed just for them! We believe all this makes Motion Kids a place your child will be begging you to bring them back to each week!
You're a VIP! Make sure to turn on your blinkers when you pull into the parking lot. You will be directed to our VIP parking. A volunteer from our VIP team will greet you and your family, give you a brief tour of the church and walk you to the Motion Kids Check-In area.
Once inside, the VIP volunteer will escort you and your child to our Motion Kids check-in/registration area. In Motion Kids, we have a dual focus when you choose to entrust us with your child. First, we want to provide your child with an excellent worship experience where we minister to them on their level, but second, we want you to be able to enjoy your worship experience distraction-free and completely at ease with your child’s safety.
We have two primary elements in place to help achieve this second goal: our check in system and our parent page system. On your first visit to Motion Kids, we will collect some basic information and check your child into our computer-based database. We recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes before the worship experience for this initial transaction. You will be issued a security tag. That tag will have a number on it that will match the number that prints on your child’s sticker nametag. You will need to show this security tag to pick up your child at the end of the worship experience. We will ask that you turn in this temporary tag after you pick up your child.
We also want you to know that if we ever needed to contact you during a worship experience, we have a system in place for that as well. As we collect information, we will ask for the number of a cell phone that you will have with you during the worship experience, set on a vibrate setting. If we need to reach you, we will send you a text message, letting you know of the situation and asking for you to come to your child. We also have Security Team Members stationed in our Motion Kids areas at all times. With these systems in place, we feel that you can rest assured that your child will be safe and secure in Motion Kids and we are honored that you would trust us with your most precious commodity.
