Birth through 6th grade
Here at Shepherd’s Gate, we provide a caring, secure and interactive environment. Our classrooms are secure with a check-in and check-out system. Background checks are required for volunteers and staff working in SG Kids. Our curriculum focuses on high impact discipleship where families work together with our church body, to build kids up and to reach out to our community.
First time visitors need to complete this Family Ministry Registration Form. It can be completed ahead of time and brought with you on your first visit.

Kids (Ages 3 yrs.-6th grade): Sunday 10-11a AND 11:30a-12:30p
Kids are welcome to attend one or both services! This allows parents/guardians to attend both church service and a Bible study!
All kids sign in at the computers and then split up by ages. We’re off on an adventure of Biblical proportions! Our Sunday morning features adult and youth leaders engaging kids in small groups then leading them into a large group presentation of Dramas, Games, Biblical Teachings and Dynamic Worship. Friends are always welcome on this incredible journey into faith! During the summer, SG Kids continues to meet at 10a only, so don’t miss out on the fun!
