Elementary

Kids really matter! At Foothills, kids are an essential part of our family. KidsChurch Elementary is a ministry where our trained leaders invest in kids as they discover the amazing life that only Jesus offers. Our KidsChurch Elementary spaces are designed to engage kids' hearts at their age level. Every Sunday at both the 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services, kids make friends, learn, laugh, play, sing, and celebrate!

KidsChurch is offered for kids in first grade through fifth grade. Starting 15 minutes before each service, all elementary age kids meet together in the Slide Room for mixers and free time, followed by whole group worship and Bible teaching in the Kids Theater. Then they will break into small age level groups for continued learning and activities in the Red Theater. You can pick-up your child at the Red Theater no later than ten minutes after the worship service. Please remain on campus while your child is at KidsChurch Elementary.

KidsChurch Elementary has its own entrance east of the main church lobby. It is located down the breezeway from the entrance to the lobby and auditorium. Please ask a Foothills greeter to help you find your way. When you arrive, your child will be checked in with a numbered ID sticker, one for your child to wear and one for you to match at pick-up. If an ID sticker is lost, please be prepared to show a photo ID to a staff member to check your child out. In the event that we need to contact you during KidsChurch Elementary, the ID number will be posted on the auditorium screen. Security team members will meet you in the hallway to help you locate your child.

All volunteers have been cleared through a national background check and are working together in groups to make KidsChurch Elementary safe for your child. We value your trust and have checks and balances in place to keep your child safe. Staff and volunteers work in pairs and will never be alone with a child. You can identify KidsChurch Elementary leaders and staff by their ID badge with their picture and name on it. We encourage you to introduce yourself to leaders and get to know them more each week.

KidsChurch Elementary leaders are trained to equip them for the many different situations they encounter. All kids are welcome. If your child has a food allergy, medical condition or learning challenge, please let our staff know. We have alert stickers available at all check-in stations for you to attach to your child’s clothing. Feel free to note any necessary information on the sticker after discussing it with staff. A VIP program is available for kids with more specific needs. To learn more about that program or to enroll your child, please contact Scott Downing sdowning@foothillsonline.org  at least one week in advance of your attendance.

We believe that investing in the life of a child is effort well spent. Our desire is for each child to feel valued, cared for, listened to and encouraged. Our purpose is to help each child connect to Jesus and the joy He brings to life.

We’re here to help you and your family live and love like Jesus right here in Arvada. Please feel free to contact Scott Downing, Kids Pastor, to learn more about KidsChurch at 303-420-2777 or sdowning@foothillsonline.org .
