Kids Church FAQs
Is it safe to leave my kids during church?
All our volunteers are required to complete a CORI background check, and our pre-K and toddler children are individually checked in so that only an approved parent or guardian is able to pick them up. If your child needs you during the service, we will inform you!
My kid has an allergy, who should I tell?
Many of our Citylife kids have allergies! We don't eat or share food at church, but if you have a high degree of sensitivity please let any of our volunteers know.
