Downtown Kids

Nursery
Our nursery rooms are located to the right side of the main entry to Central Station on the south side of the building. A volunteer and a professional childcare worker staff each room. Check-in begins at 8:30am and a numbered identification system is in place to ensure that only the person with the matching stub can check your child out of the room. We provide goldfish crackers and water for children during a snack time unless a parent provides an alternative snack.

Elementary (K – 5th grade)

Elementary students can be checked in at 8:30am before 9am service in the Downtown Kids' area at the bottom of the stairs at the North entrance to Central Station and will sit in the worship center. At greeting time, checked-in students will be dismissed and will gather in the hall at the top of the stairs of the main entrance to Central Station. Flipside leaders will take the students to the classroom. Immediately following the service, pick up your students at the Flipside classroom.

If attending the 10:45am service, elementary students can be checked in at 10:30am and proceed to the Flipside classroom. Immediately following the service, students can be picked up at the Flipside classroom.

Our elementary program is called the “Flipside” because even though we are living in this world, we are living out the values of God’s kingdom that are often “flipped” from what the world will teach us. The children learn that they are valuable to God and that they can live into the purposeful adventure for which He's created them right now.
