What to Expect
The DOCK is a space for kids to meet on Sunday mornings to learn about the love of JESUS. We dive into the Bible to find out how JESUS lived and how He sees the world. It’s our aim to learn about JESUS’ perspective in an authentic, fun, and engaging way – just the way He intended!
Your First Visit
Here’s what to expect when visiting The DOCK for the first time:
First, find the area marked for Kids. There we will meet your family, check your child in, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child’s name
- Child’s birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
How Check-In Works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s unique number will appear on one of the screens in the auditorium. Simply exit the auditorium and head back to Dock Kids. One of our volunteers will be ready to assist you.
As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, I have worked with children and adolescents of all different strengths. As a “Jesus freak” (I hope you have DC Talk stuck in your head now), I decided to take my child development expertise to children’s ministry. In 2015, I made a shift in occupation just as our church was moving into our permanent home- which in hindsight was NUTS! Since then, I’ve become the “mom” of the staff as we keep hiring “babies”. I’ve always had a passion for kids but in the last couple years, my heart for pouring the love of Jesus into them has become my main mission and I love getting to know the kids and families of Lakepoint in the process.
