In Kidway, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship is an action, and consistent leaders make a difference. We want kids to see how God's Word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to him, and to build friendships that will last. That's why it's important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and same leader at the same hour—Every Sunday! Kidway is available during each service at both campuses.

Child Check In

For the safety of all our children, we have a child check-in system set up at Gateway Church for all our classes from birth through grade 5. 

The first time your child attends a Kidway class you will be asked to create a profile at one of our check-in stations. We have several check-in stations which are clearly marked and available for use at each campus. A volunteer will help you get started. Once your child/children are checked in, they can go to their class. The next time you attend, you will simply need to enter your phone number to check your children in.

When you arrive on Sunday morning for Kidway, you will check your children in at the Kidway Check-In Station. We use Gateway Community as our secure children’s check-in system that will allow Gateway to provide a safe, simple, and quick check-in and check-out process for our Sunday school program. See a check-in assistant at the nursery or Kidway desk when you arrive to set up your profile. Once you have checked in, a volunteer will help guide you to the class for your child’s age.


Nursery care is available at each campus for children birth - 2 years old. Children will be loved and cared for during the service by trained volunteers who have undergone a background check. Special areas are also designated for nursing mothers at each campus. Please ask at a Nursery Check-In area where the nursing mother's area at your campus is located.

Special Needs

Programming for children with special needs is available during the 10:45 service at our County Road 9 Campus. We request that you pre-register your child for this ministry so we can be prepared with the necessary personnel on Sunday morning. To register, please complete this form.
