Infants - 5th Grade

Our mission is Helping Kids Know Jesus and Make Him Known.

Hey, CornerKids Families!

We’re excited to offer CornerKids Sundays during 9:30am services at the 84th St. and South Wyoming Campuses, and at 10am at Heritage Hill.

Keep in touch! You'll find the most up-to-date-information about what's happening in CornerKids on the CornerKids Facebook page
CornerKids @ Cornerstone Church and on the CornerKids YouTube channel.

Help Kids Know Jesus!

There are so many ways you can help Kids Know Jesus in CornerKids!

We're looking for childcare and small group leaders to serve in Infants - 5th grade at all campuses on the weekends. We also need volunteers every year for MEGA Kids Camp, and at times, during special events. There's no prep required, and no experience necessary — we train you!

Volunteer in CornerKids!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Kids! Our process is pretty simple, and can be completed in 5 easy steps:

Step 1: fill out our volunteer application and our onboarding coordinator will reach out to you!

Step 2: Meet with your Campus CornerKids Coordinator

Step 3: Fill out our Background Check Application. **Important - please complete the application within 30 minutes of clicking on the link**

Completing it means you approve Protect My Ministry running the background check (we don't see the info--all is run through our provider). Background checks are good for 2 years.

Step 3A: If you signed up to have a minor child over the age of 12 serving with you, we need a separate Background completed for them. You may use the same link found above to complete their check.

The application defaults to asking for a driver's license number, You can enter all "1's" or "0's". Also - if you do not want to reference your child’s SS#, you can use 1's. Please also complete a Parent Covenant on your child’s behalf.

Step 4: Please complete our digitally signed onboarding documents.

Step 5: Please send an email to VolunteeringCK@cornerstonemi.org when you’ve completed steps 1-4. You can expect to receive a reply email from our onboarding coordinator with additional information, and to confirm that we received all the necessary documents for you to serve, within 2 business days.

Thank you for being willing to volunteer. We're looking forward to see how God will use your gifts with kids!

Cornerstone's Family Framework

We Love and Support Your Family!

Your son or daughter (or grandchild or student) is in a phase of life, whether they’re a toddler, a seventh-grader or a senior in high school. Each Phase has specific moments to celebrate, and we call them Milestones. Each milestone is a part of our Family Framework.

Additional Information / FAQ

Special Needs classes are offered for CornerKids at the 84th St. Campus in room S213 during the 9:30am Sunday service. Web pre-registration is recommended.

Our goal is to provide a safe, loving and enjoyable environment that meets the physical, emotional and spiritual need of every child. We work with your family to meet the specific needs of your son or daughter.

We follow the preschool curriculum and adapt it to fit the needs of your child. The three main truths we would like every child to learn are:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus wants to be my Friend Forever

These truths come alive through Bible stories, hands-on activities, crafts, and worship through music! If a child is unable to sit through structured activities, the volunteers will reinforce these truths through play.

If you have any questions, please email Bethann Fernandez.

Registration

Please click the link below to register your child for CornerKids Special Needs. If you fill this out by the Wednesday before you plan to attend, then your child’s information will be in our system. If you fill this out after Wednesday, please print a copy of your confirmation email so we may more quickly enter your child(ren) in our system.

Register for Special Needs 

The safety of your child(ren) in CornerKids is a top priority. Our child safety procedures are designed to keep our kids ministries areas secure, especially during drop-off and pick-up.

Check-in Procedure

You'll use a touch screen monitor to check-in your children. The check-in system will produce a name badge for your child, and a claim ticket for you (the parent/guardian).

Check-in is as simple as entering your phone number starting with the area code and it will bring up your family. You then click on the names of your child(ren). If you need help, someone will be available to help you. Once you're entered in the system, we can send you a *text message if you are needed during the service, and your claim ticket number will be placed on the main screen in the Worship Center.

Check-out Procedure

You must present your claim ticket to pick up your child. This is vital to the safety of the kids. Children will only be dismissed to their parent/guardian who shows the claim ticket that was issued to them at check- in.

*If you are needed during the service, we will text you, or your child's security number will be placed on the main screen in the service. When you receive a text or see a notification on the screen, please go to the CornerKids Check-In desk and the volunteer will let you in to pick up your child.

Kids are cared for by small group leaders that are trained and background-checked.  Kids spend 5-10 minutes in their classrooms doing an opening activity, and then have a large group time with worship and Bible storytelling or a Bible story on video. Kids return to their classrooms for a time in small groups, connecting the Bible story in relevant ways through discussion, games and fun activities.

Thank you for your interest in serving in CornerKids! The first step is to fill out our CornerKids volunteer form. Someone from our CornerKids onboarding team will contact you from there.

The short answer is yes. Please see our baptism brochure for more on why we baptize, and what that means in the United Methodist Church. You can also visit our baptism page for more information on upcoming baptism celebrations.

Our MEGA Kids Camp is our version of VBS... on steroids! Kids will experience upbeat rallies, interactive storytelling, upbeat worship and fun activities. MEGA Kids Camp is for kids entering Kindergarten through 5th grade in the fall of the next school year.
