Children

In KidCity, we exist to help kids discover a  full life only found in Jesus Christ.

From the moment they step onto the streets of KidCity, they will find exciting and creative environments. They’ll experience the Bible come to life, captivating their hearts and minds to discover Jesus in a personal way.

At KidCity, your child will fit into one of our towns:

Kevin is the visionary behind all the ministry that happens in KidCity. He enjoys creating fun, exciting, and inspiring environments for the children of PCC—from our newest infants all the way to our 4th grade students. Sometimes, this means getting slimed, building a sundae on someone’s head, or eating strange and unusual items for the sake of sharing Jesus. It is his desire for all children to accept the ultimate gift of a forever friendship with Jesus Christ. When he isn’t dreaming up new ideas for Children’s Ministry, he enjoys family time with his wife, Natalie, and their two daughters—going out for dinner, watching movies, laughing, and having fun together.

The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts. Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7

KidCity is excited to help you bring the Bible to life and into your home! This powerful and life-changing event will empower you to teach your children about God’s Word. You’ll see the Clubhouse Gang in action and learn how to teach the Bible at home in a way that is simple and compelling.

You’ll learn how to use the Bible with your child at home, as we MODEL some practical ways you can train your kids in God’s Word.

You’ll discover how you can impact your child for Christ as you PRACTICE doing a GodTime together.

Security & Wellness

We take your child's safety, and your peace of mind, very seriously.

If you are visiting Pathway, you will need to stop at KidCity Guest Services to sign in your child for the service you are attending.  KidCity Guest Services is located on the first level just inside the entrance to KidCity. At your first visit, a staff member or volunteer greeter will give you a simple welcome booklet and a quick tour of your child’s area. The visitor registration process only takes about 5 minutes.

Check-in / Security Process

Our number one value in KidCity is Safety! We want you to feel confident and comfortable leaving your child in our care so you can worship without worry. We use an ID# system in KidCity that lets us know your child belongs to you. When you decide to call Pathway home, you will fill out a registration form. At that time we will assign an ID (your “K” number) to your household, and all the children listed in that household will have the same number. We will send you a postcard when your new Parent Cards are ready to be picked up at KidCity Guest Services. These cards are bar-coded to match only your family, and at every visit you will scan these barcodes at the Express Check-In stations located outside of the KidCity entrances. Nametags for the kids and pickup receipts for the parents will print instantly, and you’re off to class! At each visit, your pickup receipt has a random number that will match the number on the kids’ nametags. You must have a printed pickup receipt to pick up your kids from their classrooms. If your child needs you during the service we will display your “K” number on the screen in the worship center, so make sure you know your number or always have your Parent Card with you. If you’re visiting, just stop by KidCity Guest Services and they will issue nametags and pickup receipts to you.

We also have a Security team that monitors our KidCity doors during each service. No one without a staff or volunteer name badge is allowed in the KidCity hallways during the service. Parents may check on children at any time during the service, but you must present your parent card to be given entrance into the KidCity area.

Two or More

We have a policy of two screened and trained volunteers in any room before we will open that classroom to children. No KidCity staff or volunteer will be alone with a child or group of children under any circumstance. 

Screening & Training Volunteers

Finally, all of our KidCity volunteers go through an application process that includes reference checks, a limited criminal history background check, and area-specific training before they ever begin working with children.

Health & Wellness Policy

For the protection of all the children in KidCity, we ask that you not bring your child if he or she has been sick (fever, vomiting, non-clear runny nose, diarrhea, rash, eye infection, persistent cough, or any other contagious illness) within the last 24 hours. If your child becomes ill while in our care, you will be contacted immediately.
