Discoveryland

Where the hearts of kids connect with the heart of Jesus.
During weekend services

Each weekend children experience safe, age-appropriate environments where God’s Word is taught in a creative and relevant way. Our desire is for kids to know God loves them, has provided a path for relationship through Jesus, and has sent the Holy Spirit to empower them.

Come join us this weekend in Discoveryland on any of our campuses. Your family will have fun and experience a community where kids meet Jesus.

Serve in Discoveryland!

We are looking for volunteers to help out in Discoveryland! No experience required. Just plan to pray and have a lot of fun!

Your First Visit

Large green arrows will point you to Guest Services at the entrance to Discoveryland. There, we will meet your family, guide you through the registration process, and personally escort you to your child’s classroom. We will ask you for the following information: child’s name, parent/guardian’s name, and any special instructions for your child (allergies, etc.).

Checking In

You and your child will receive badges with a corresponding pager number and security number. Your child will need to wear the name tag while in Discoveryland and you will keep the corresponding parent tag. The parent tag is your identification to enter the children’s area and for your child to be released to you after the service. If you lose your parent tag, go directly to Guest Services and show a photo ID.

For the safety of your child, only parents, guardians, or adult family members are permitted to pick up a child from their classroom.  Your parent badge will be matched with your child’s name badge by authorized Discoveryland personnel just prior to releasing your child to you

The Ride Home

When returning home after Discoveryland we encourage you to ask a couple of questions, “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn about God?” Nothing pleases us more to hear your kids loved Discoveryland and can share with you the one big idea they learned.

Video Nursery

All our campuses offer a “moms only” area for mothers to care and nurture their babies. On most campuses, this area is supported with a video feed of the service. We don’t want moms to miss out as they care for their little one.

What We Value

God's Love

The primary objective of Discoveryland is to ensure your child gains a clear understanding of God’s love for him or her and to begin to experience his presence in their lives. A variety of creative, engaging Bible stories and related activities are provided to help your child understand they are loved by God.  But, beyond merely learning about God we also expect the Holy Spirit will unite with the child’s spirit enhancing their relationship with the Him.

A Safe Environment

Our volunteers and staff are carefully screened and trained via interviews and background checks. We also make sure that your child’s name badge is matched to your parent badge before they can be released from their classroom. As an extra measure of safety, all areas in Discoveryland are monitored by trained volunteers.

Age-Tailored Music, Activities, & Stories

The primary objective of Discoveryland is to ensure your child gains a clear understanding of God’s love for him or her and to begin to experience his presence in their lives. A variety of creative, engaging Bible stories and related activities are provided to help your child understand they are loved by God.  But, beyond merely learning about God we also expect the Holy Spirit will unite with the child’s spirit enhancing their relationship with the Him.

Fun!

We think about Discoveryland from a child’s perspective and develop the entire experience to make it the best hour of the week. In Discoveryland we find fun to be the initial engagement element for our children.  When a child is enjoying themselves in a creative and engaging time, they are much more likely to learn and retain.  We frequently hear about children asking their parents through the week if today is the day they get to go to Discoveryland.
