Fortress Kids

Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at Fortress Church

We want your kids to love church!

At Fortress Kids, your child won’t have a chance to be bored! Newborns through 5th graders have a ton of fun as they learn about Jesus through worship, age-specific lessons, and a variety of exciting activities.

Our kids area is fully staffed with trustworthy individuals who are committed to ministering to children. You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and have a great experience.


Parents & Kids

Our Kid’s Ministry meets at the same time as our Sunday morning worship for adults. So while you are enjoying the worship and teaching in the Worship Center, your kids are experiencing God in their own fun and exciting way.


Safety

We have a check-in system with parent identification tags, trained security staff throughout the facility, and team volunteers who have all passed a comprehensive background check. We also have a system in place to contact you during the worship service if necessary.


Biblical Teaching

Using age-specific curriculum, Kid’s Ministry leaders deliver fun and memorable teachings from the Bible that make it easy for your child to learn. Your kids will have a blast while learning about Jesus.



Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Fortress Kids for the first time:


First, you'll enter the front doors and be greeted by awesome people. Go to the left and down the hallway where you'll find signs that say "Kids Check-In". A volunteer will help you check your child into our system, and then we will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.


To help ease the process, you can PRE-REGISTER your child by filling out the form below.

Parent's Viewing Room

We do offer childcare during service for infants. But we also have a Parent's Viewing Room that is available for mothers and fathers with infants located in the back corner of the Worship Center near the media booth. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment as well as creating a distraction-free environment for others.
