Our goal at TFHKids is to create a place where your kids can experience the Unconditional Love of God at each phase of life. Our teams and volunteers provide a safe, fun, and engaging environment where your child can grow into a closer relationship with Jesus.
It is a core value at The Father’s House that children learn from a young age to participate as a family in the worship service. The first two songs are high energy and we welcome children to feel free in the presence of God. You might see children dancing, playing a ‘play’ guitar, or using some streamers. Following the first two songs, one of our Pastors will step up to pray over our children and send children to their appropriate classrooms. Please fill free as parents to walk them to their classrooms and return to the sanctuary once they and you are comfortable.
The Father’s House nursery is staffed each service with an employee of our subsidiary ministry Abundant Life Child Care & Preschool (ALCP). ALCP is a licensed child care center in the state of Kansas and adheres to all regulations set forth by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. To see all of the requirements of a child care center within the State of Kansas please go to https://www.kdheks.gov/bcclr/regs/licensingpreschools.htm.
The Father’s House because it is a licensed child care facility all classrooms used by the child care center must also meet the regulations set forth by KDHE and are inspected annually to ensure those regulations are met.
The Father’s House does also use volunteers from within the church body to help in this age group.
The Father’s House utilizes volunteers from within the church body to serve in the Children’s Ministry. The Children’s Pastor reviews all volunteers within the ministry and ensures they are assigned to roles and responsibilities that best suit their gifts and talents. Adult male involvement in the Student Ministry as whole is encouraged for the purpose of strengthening the need of God fearing men as role models throughout our Student Life Ministry. (Student Life Ministry is Birth thru 18 years of age.) It is a practice of the Student Ministry to ensure that no adult is ever alone with any child, regardless of age or gender for any amount of time. Male volunteers are not assigned to the Birth thru 2 years of age classrooms and only male volunteers whose spouses serve with them are scheduled in the 2 years to Kindergarten age group.
Additionally, The Father’s House believes in raising up younger generations to serve within the local church and give young people the opportunity to develop skills throughout the ministry. Because of this value, the Children’s Department intentionally utilizes young people of all ages, monitored by trained adults to serve throughout the different ministries of The Father’s House.
Programs available during every service
First Time Guest
Your child is important to us. So please visit the TFHKids Center on the east end of our lobby. There, a we will get information such as parent/guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child.
One of our TFHKids volunteers would be happy to show you to where your child’s class will be for that service time.
How Check-In Works
You may check in your child at any available station. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. We ask that you exit the auditorium from the back end of the room and head toward your child’s assigned classroom. A TFHKids volunteer will assist you from there.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions like, “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?”
