On Wednesdays, the kids start in KZ, then break into activity-based groups called DTeams. Our DTeams change three times throughout the year, and sign-ups are needed. We'll always have a couple DTeams with space available for your kids - feel free to join whenever you can! (Each trimester we have some DTeams with limited space, that's why we need to have sign-ups at the beginning...) Registration Instructions: Registration currently takes place in KZ when you arrive. You MUST have a completely filled out registration form to register your child (available in KZ) - children must be registered by an adult, and cannot register themselves.

Our goal in KidZone is to partner with you at home, because parents are the primary spiritual influencer in kids' lives. One way we will partner with you is by encouraging and rewarding kids to complete devotions at home. Each week we will produce KZ Bible Studies pages that connect to our lessons in KZ. The kids will be encouraged to read 4 passages of scripture and respond to four questions:

1. What is the BIG Idea?

2. What does it teach me about God?

3. What does God want me to do?

4. Do I have any questions?


These pages are a a practical way to encourage our kids to develop devotion times with God by reading Scriptures, pausing to reflect and applying it to their lives. For a fun introduction to KZ Bible Studies, watch this KZOnline video together with your child!
