Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting New Life Kids for the first time:


First, stop at the Information Center located in the Fellowship Hall (ask any door greeter and they will happily walk you there). They we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.


Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):


  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Sunday Sunday and Wednesday Night Activities: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.


After Sunday School and Wednesday Night Activities: After the class is completed, you will return to your child’s room (Daniel Room for all children on Wednesday evenings) and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.


During Sunday Worship Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the worship service, we will page you with the pager we provided you when you checked your child in. We ask that you exit the Worship Center immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Viewing and Nursing Room

VIEWING ROOM

New Life offers childcare during the worship service for infants. But we also have a Viewing Room that is available for mothers and fathers with infants and toddlers. We provide activity bags for your little ones that your children can use as you worship. Every church is different, so please ask a greeter or stop at the Information Center in the Fellowship Hall to know where to find the Viewing Room.


NURSING ROOM

Our Nursing Room is located at the back of the Worship Center. There you will find complementary coffee, water, and supplies for your little one if you have any need. There is also a TV that livestreams the service so you don’t miss anything. Deacons will be positioned in the back of the Worship Center to assist you where to go.
