Kids & Family Vision
Our priority is to present the Gospel in a way our kids will never forget. We want our kids to experience the WONDER of a loving Creator who restores a world beset by sin. We want our kids to ENCOUNTER the person of Jesus Christ who gave His life to rescue them from eternity without God. We want our kids to WITNESS the passions of believers, living in community, empowered by the Holy Spirit to embody the Gospel.
Each Sunday, we have a time of worship, teaching, sharing, learning and praying, all enveloped in the presence of the Holy Spirit. The rhythm of the day is uniquely catered towards each age group.
Nursery (6- 18 months): Our dedicated volunteers will care for your child, praying and speaking God’s truths over them. If your child has a hard time being separated from you, we always work with you, doing whatever you are happy and comfortable with. We have a paging system, where we can easily contact you, should your child need you. 1:2 Volunteer to Child ratio
Toddlers (18-24 months): Our volunteers love our curious and energetic toddlers. This is a fun class with a short bible story time, a time of singing, age-appropriate toys to play with, and snack time.* 1:3 Volunteer to Child ratio
2 year olds: Our passionate volunteers create a wonderful classroom just for our two-year-olds. This class is a little more structured than our toddler class, with an age-appropriate lesson, worship time, free play time, along with time to run off energy at the gym. Snack is also provided*. We want our 2-year-old children to know that God made them, God loves them, and God is with them. 1:4 Volunteer to Child ratio
Pre-School 3-4 year olds: Our energetic volunteers love to work with the natural curiosity of preschoolers. Just like our two-year-old class, we have a structured lesson for them with worship, teaching, crafts, gym and snack*. We want our preschoolers to be invited to experience the wonder of who God is. 1:5 Volunteer to Child ratio
Elementary: Our volunteers love to work with the growing minds and hearts of our elementary aged kids. The kids experience a structured lesson with worship, teaching, crafts, gym and snack.* With our Elementary-aged kids, we desire to work with them to help reveal God’s incredible plan for their lives and how He invites each child to be a part of it.

*If your child has dietary restrictions, please bring something he/she can snack on during class should they get hungry. Otherwise we will provide something during snack time.
Kids learn in the context of relationships, when their lives intersect with others. While your kid’s most significant relationship is with you at home, they have a better chance of understanding and interpreting life-changing truth when multiple influences are all saying the same thing.
Our volunteers are trained and equipped to share the love of Christ and the truth about how God sees each child. Our volunteers are like shepherds and mentors for our kids, desiring to see each child grow in their love for Christ.
Security and Safety
We ensure every child’s safety and security under our care, through various security systems. We have an easy check-in system that you sign into, each time you attend church. In addition, all of our Volunteers are cleared through background checks and given safety training.
All parents/guardians are given a security sticker when checking their child in to The Village and must present it upon picking up their child. No child will ever be released without the parent/guardian presenting the security sticker.
Check-In opens at 10:15am and closes 15 minutes after service.
We have provided a parking area just for families that ensures you know there are dedicated spots available to you; one less thing to worry about when getting your family ready for church.
Please pick up a family parking sticker to go on the inside windshield of your car to help our parking team identify you and get you to the right spot.
Outside of Sundays
While our time with your kids on Sunday is intentional in sharing the Gospel, we believe that much of Jesus’ story is portrayed through life together. We are dedicated to providing you and your family with sacred spaces to live in community within our Reality SF family. We believe this partnership will develop through meaningful relationships, educational and biblically sound resources, spiritual counseling, Community Groups, and a variety of seasonal family events and activities.
