Kids Ministry

Your Children are Welcome!

Join our Kids Ministry at 180 Life Church in Hartford, CT or Sarasota, FL

Our mission is to partner with parents and caregivers to help lead their children into a relationship with Jesus and to grow in their faith. Since no one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than his or her caretakers, we want to support you as you integrate Biblical truths into your child(ren)’s everyday lives.

Our Sunday programming is designed specifically to reinforce truths about God in meaningful, developmentally-appropriate ways for your child.

Your First Visit

Our team wants to give your family an excellent experience!

When you arrive, our team will happily show you the way to the children and/or youth area. You’ll go to the first-time check-in station where you can tell us a little about your family to help us serve you well. During the check-in process parents will have the opportunity to make note of any special needs, developmentally or physically.

Each child will receive a name tag with a unique alphanumeric code that is changed each week that ensures we can contact families during service and children are returned to their rightful guardians after service.

To ensure safety, we perform a complete background check on anyone who serves with our children and youth. Serving teammates are trained on the policies in place to keep kids safe from check-in to check-out.

Infant/Child Dedication

What a blessing it is to dedicate children to the Lord!

The dedication is a time to celebrate and thank God for the gift of children. It’s also a time for you, as parents to commit to model what following Jesus looks like and to raise children to understand that they are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and to believe that the Bible is absolute Truth. You also have your entire church body alongside you to support you on your journey and to pray for you.

If you’re interested in dedicating your child on a Sunday morning, please contact our Children’s Ministry Director.
