Kids Health & Safety
When you arrive at an Open Door campus, visit the check-in kiosk near the entrance to the auditorium. Print off the Security Tag for your child.
Throughout all of our reopening phases, we are encouraging worshipping together as a family, something we value as important. Due to various levels of volunteer support, which impacts the manner of Kids Ministry we offer at each campus, some campuses have children worship with their families before going to Open Door Kids during worship, while other campuses start Open Door Kids at the same time that worship begins. See the campus-specific details below.

A Place to Learn
We value relationships and we know that your children enjoy seeing their teachers as well as their friends. We have put together an environment where they can learn, play, and create alongside their friends.
Once they arrive in Open Door Kids, they will watch their lesson and participate in an activity that will help make the Bible lesson memorable.
Open Door Kids values cleanliness of all environments and safety for all children and team members by following these standards.
