*4th-6th grades
*Student leaders lead small group time with the 6th graders from August to December. In January, 6th graders join Awaken Students in one of the venues during Sunday services. See for more information.






Safety and Check-in

Your child’s safety is our first priority. All Awaken Kids Team Members must pass a background check and attend an orientation before entering our classrooms.
Each classroom has direct communication with the Awaken Church Security Team who patrols our campus to ensure your child’s safety as well as the safety of anyone coming on the Awaken Church campus.
We use a printed security tag system for child check-in and pick-up. Each parent sticker has a unique number that matches the number on the child sticker. Children are not released unless a parent sticker is presented.
We have 2 locations for you to check-in your child: Kids Central (located between the North and South Venues) and Kids Corner (located next to the Socialside, in the Kindergarten foyer).
On your first visit, please visit the VIP/Connect Tent located in front of the North and South Venues to check your child(ren) in.
Want to get your family registered for this Sunday?  Click the link below, fill out the information by 12:00 PM on the Saturday prior to the service you'll be attending, and show up to one of our check-in stations. Enter your phone number in the kiosk, and your child's sticker will be ready to print.

What We're Teaching!

Our Awaken Kids Team believes in the value of teaching God's word at the earliest ages. Our 2-year old's thru 5th graders are taught the Bible at an age-appropriate level using worship, hands-on activities, visual aids, large group teaching, and games.
