KidCity is our program for children ages birth through 5th grade.  All teachers and volunteers are fully trained and background checked by Neartown Church. If you are interested in seeing the KidCity area prior to Sunday morning, feel free to contact us to set up a brief tour.

We invite all kids older than 5 to join us in the worship service for the music portion of the service, then exit after music with their teacher to their class. We value families and welcome this opportunity for our children to experience this aspect of church life. 

KidCity Information for Parents

The ministry of KidCity is to teach children the peace of life with Jesus Christ in a secure and fun environment. To accomplish this mission we need the help of parents in the following ways:

Safety and Security

  • When children are checked in parents will receive a security tag.

  • Parents should write any special instructions or needs on the class sign in sheet.

  • Children will be released only to parent holding a matching security tag.

  • Parents may not go past the check-in desk into the childrenʼs area without a KidCity Coach or Teacher with them.

  • All KidCity teachers have been appropriately screened to work with children.

General Information

  • Your children may be dropped off up to 15 minutes before the service begins.

  • Any personal items left with children such as bottles, bags, etc., should be labeled with their first and last name. No glass containers please.

  • Provide disposable diapers for your child.

  • Please do not bring toys from home for safety and sanitation reasons.
