WE LOVE CHILDREN!

Welcome to our children’s ministry! At DCI, we love children and have a passion to see kids KNOW God through biblical teaching and encounters with our Father.

On your first visit to DCI, we will ask you to register your child at our Children's Registration. This step is so important for us to best provide for your child’s needs. Once you are registered, our children's team will assist you in finding just the right classroom for your children.


*Make your first visit easier by pre-registering your child online before you arrive. Online registrations will need to be completed no later than Saturday at 9pm,  in order to be processed in time for Sunday experiences.


Here's what you can expect at DCKids:

+ CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT PROCESS

CHECK-IN – As we receive your children, we will ensure we have an accurate cell phone number for you in the event you need to be contacted during service. You will also be given a security ticket which is used to ensure your child is safely released to the appropriate family member after services.

CHECK-OUT – Children should be picked up no later than 15 minutes after services have ended. Children can only be released to ticket holders 16 years of age or older. If a parent should lose their security ticket, a valid photo ID will be required before children can be released.

IF WE NEED TO CONTACT YOU during a service, our children's overseer will text you and ask you come to the children's center.

+ STAFF & SECURITY

For the safety of our children, DCI Children’s Ministry is restricted to authorized staff only. All staff must wear proper ID.

+ SPACE LIMITATIONS

God is bringing lots of new families to our house! While we try to accommodate all of our children, safety is super-important to us. On the occasion that one of our rooms have met their teacher-child space ratio, we will ask you to allow your child to join you in the main auditorium.

+ WELLNESS POLICY

When your child is sick, for the protection of all the children in our ministry we cannot accept a child with the following symptoms:

  • fever (within the last 24-hours)
  • rash
  • fresh cold (four days or less)
  • diarrhea
  • runny nose
  • persistent cough
  • any other signs of illness

We cannot administer medication to your child. If your child requires medication during the service, it is your responsibility to administer it. Thank you in advance for helping us keep our children’s ministry a healthy place for all.

The whole dedication lasts approximately 10-12 minutes.
