4/5 Preteens

4th & 5th graders are in that in-between stage: not little kids, but not quite teens. That's why we've started this ministry just for them! Right now, it's only available Sundays at 9:30am at 84th St.

We want to help your child cultivate a personal relationship with Jesus. We do this by sharing God’s word, connecting them with other kids, and by playing games and enjoying snacks and slushies together!

Kids will be surrounded with adult leaders who will pour love and God’s truth into them. We have a larger group lesson and then we break off into smaller groups with the same group of kids and leaders. This allows the kids to get to know each other, and also allows the leaders to be a trusted adult to your child.

If your child is a 4th or 5th grader, we would love to have them come check us out. They can even bring a friend along!

Special Needs program

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 required.

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.

Child safety procedures - Check in/out

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.

Our family is new to Cornerstone, what should we do next?

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early, and go to the CornerKids Welcome deskwhere you will fill out a registration card for your kids and be entered into our database. A staff or volunteer of CornerKids will show you where your child(ren)'s classrooms are and will answer any other questions you have.

What happens at CornerKids during a service?

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 the 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.
