LIFE KIDS TEAM
WHAT IS LIFE KIDS?
We want your kids to grow up loving to go to church, so we make Life Kids a safe place where every child, birth through fifth grade, can have a blast while learning about the Bible. We are committed to creating safe and fun environments where your children are taught a spiritual foundation centered around their Bible and are able to experience age-appropriate services. Our ultimate hope is to see a generation of children come to know God personally.
At Life Kids, We Value...
We understand that it's a big deal to leave your kids with someone other than you, so we are committed to a system that creates a safe environment for all of our children. You can rest assured that all Life Kids leaders have been trained, background checked, and are ready to care for your little world changers.
We work together with parents to help teach their children our core values. Our goal is to partner with families by giving them resources to spark conversation that will help develop future leaders and disciples of Jesus.
Teaching children the love of Jesus in a safe and secure environment is our primary focus; however, expect to see kid-inspired fun in every service through energetic worship music and interactive games. Our team feels called to share the love of Jesus with kids, and every Sunday they help bring excitement and enjoyment to your child’s church experience.
First Time at Life Kids?
Look for the Life Kids Check-In sign and find the line labeled "First-Time Visitors". We will meet your family and check your child into our database system. Once your family is checked in, one of our Dream Teamers will be happy to show you the age appropriate environment we have designed for your child.
You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. You and Your child will need to wear the name tag portion of your matching tags which bears a code that is matched to your portion during the checkout at the end of the service. During checkout, you will return to your child's room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you
In the event that we may need to contact you during the service, we will text you from the number provided at check-in. We ask that you immediately find a ReThink Life Church staff member or leader who will direct you to your child's room

Ages 6m — 24m
Your infants will experience a time of structured activities designed to cover the basics of human development and fine motor skills. As your child grows, acclimation is introduced to encourage healthy development.
2 - Kindergarten
In our preschool rooms, children will learn through age-appropriate teaching, activities, worship, and Life groups to reinforce Biblical truths More time is devoted to lesson time and worship to help prepare your young ones as they grow and develop.
First - Fifth Grade
Our Kids Theater services are designed to present the love of Jesus to elementary kids in a way that is exciting, engaging, and practical. Every week they play games, experience worship, work on a Bible verse, and learn through live and video teaching. They also receive prayer and make friends in our small group time. We also send home a take-home sheet, which you can work on and talk about as a family throughout the week.
There's no babysitting here at Rethink Life Church. We believe in praying and teaching God's Word with every child. We use Orange (First Look, 252 Kids) curriculum every weekend to teach your children about who God is and how much He loves them. Every week, through a themed series your children will learn Biblical truths, memory verses, and practical ways to apply them to your life.
Orange has created online resources and an app for your phone or tablet just for you. On their site, you can find the Bible story video we taught as well as questions and other activities to further discuss what we are teaching through the monthly series.
Life Kids Core Values
We love God Because He first loved us.
We love people because God loves all people.
Do Your Best
We do our best and let God do the rest.
We have fun because God gives us joy.
Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is an outward expression of an inner decision made to follow Jesus. In the Bible, we see that Jesus' parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40), then He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16-17).
No one has greater potential to impact a child’s spiritual development than their parents. Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
We understand that some churches practice “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. At ReThink Life we provide opportunities for Parent/Child dedication and believer’s baptism for children over the age of seven. To register your child for a Parent/Child Dedication click the button below.
Note: Primarily for Children Birth-4 years of Age
We advise parents to wait until their child is asking to be water baptized. This is usually a good indicator that they are ready and understand the significance of this spiritual milestone. While children under the age of seven can have a relationship with Jesus, they will not necessarily remember or understand the significance of water baptism, so we encourage parents to wait for baptisms until they are a little older.
As you are having conversations with your child or gauging if they are ready to be water baptized, we encourage you to use this guide as a discussion starter.
Be a part of the Celebration!
Baptism is an act of obedience, showing others that you have joined God's team by putting your faith in Jesus Christ. Our Children's Baptism celebration is offered several times a year. Each child getting baptized will receive a t-shirt to help them remember the special day. We invite family and friends to be a part of this event as we cheer for their decision to join God’s Team!
- At least one parent must attend the orientation & celebration.
- Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in and receive your child’s T-shirt.
- Invite your family and friends to join us as we celebrate this special occasion in your child’s life!
Partnering with Parents
We believe the best way we can help your kids develop a strong spiritual foundation is by partnering with you. Together, we can help encourage, train, and pray for them as they grow in their faith.
Here are some practical ways you can help us make the most of your child’s time spent at church:
