Kids aren't the future of the Church, they are the Church now!

What is Gayton Kids?

Gayton Kids is a ministry for kids from birth through 5th grade and their families. We teach kids that God loves them, gave His Son for them, and desires for them to believe in and follow Him.

Children are not just future church members, they are valuable now as children of God and followers of Christ!

We would love to welcome your kids to be a part of Gayton Kids!

Your First Visit to Gayton Kids

The first time you visit Gayton Kids, you will meet with one of our Vine Tenders who will assist you in getting your kids signed in and escorted to their learning environment. The Vine Tenders will ask you to provide contact information and to make us aware of any allergies or special needs your kids may have.​

How Check-In Works

Check-in stations are found at two locations in the Gayton Kids hallway. Each time a child (through 5th grade) attends, parents will sign him or her in at a check in station and receive two stickers...

The first sticker displays the child’s name, class and allergy information and should be worn by your child at all times. The second sticker has a matching code that the parent gives to the teacher or small group leader at pick-up time.

Because your kids’ safety is so important to us, we ask that parents escort kids to their first classes each time they’re in the building (we’ll take care of transitions).


Our nursery is a special place for infants and toddlers to play and be cared for by our loving and capable volunteers. Nursery is available at 9:30am and 10:45am on Sundays.​


On Sunday mornings, preschool kids have Rise & Shine classes at 9:30am and Grow & Go at 10:45am. They are welcome to attend just one or stay for both. At both hours, they will have hands-on experiences where they will learn about God’s love for them and how they can love others.


Elementary kids participate in age-graded Rise & Shine classes at 9:30am. At 10:45am, they engage in small group and large group time as part of Kids Worship. They, too, are welcome to attend one or both hours. At each, they will have experiences that bring God’s Word to life for them.

What Comes Next?

We hope that your kids are brimming with enthusiasm each time they leave the church building! Take the opportunity on the way home or over lunch to ask your kids if they had fun and what they learned at Gayton Kids. Challenge them to find ways to apply it in the coming week!
