The best place for kids: Central Park
Location: Children’s Area and B2222
Our Sunday mornings are always fun with Central Kids. At 8:30am and 11am we have large group time, with music, games, videos, and more. And at 9:45am, we have music, teaching, and engaging small groups. Simply check in at one of our kiosks or at the Central Park Welcome Desk and you’re all set!
Our Sunday nights are loud, crazy, and engaging! We offer The Gospel Project for Kids on Sunday nights throughout the school year from 5:30-7pm. The Gospel Project for Kids immerses kids in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, kids will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption. Our kids also have game time during the evening too to continue the fun!
From 6:30-7:15p, our Central Kids are currently going through UNSEEN, which is based on Priscilla Shirer’s study of the Armor of God. This version for kids is a 7-week study of Ephesians 6:10-17 and helps equip kids to put on the Armor of God to fight life’s battles. Each week develops an aspect of God’s own character, as expressed through Jesus, through Bible study and fun learning activities.
RA’s and GA’s is from 7:15-8pm and are our boys and girls programs. They both have engaging activities and are focused on being missional for Christ. RA’s have turkey shoots, pinewood racers, learn rope tying, and a lot more. Our GA’s are super relational and you never know what awesome thing they’ll be up to next.
Occasionally, we have Boys Night Out and Girls Night Out. These are opportunities for boys to do activities just with the boys, and girls can do activities just with the girls! We have a ton of fun and continue to grow in our relationships with each other and with God.
Our goal is to make your first time bringing your child to Central the easiest process possible. When you enter Central Park, you will be greeted by volunteers who will help you check your child into our security system so you can feel safe and know that your child is safe during your time at Central.
On your first visit, we ask for the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our database to help maintain our secure check-in system and our parent page system.
Have questions before you bring your child to Central for the first time? We would love to help! Feel free to email Tommy Redding, our Minister of Children and Families, and he will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about attending Central.
At Central, we take the safety of your child very seriously. All of our volunteers must pass a background check. We also utilize a security system with security stickers for checking in and picking up your child that ensures you are the only person who can pick up him or her at the end of the day. Central also employs an off-duty police officer, as well as our own security team to ensure your child’s safety.
