Children's Ministry - 3 Zones (CM3)

New City Church KIDS are "On a Quest for God" by learning how to "Make Truth Stick" where "Big Kids get to Know a Big God."

We are all about nurturing a relationship with God, our peers and our loving volunteers. CM3 desires to see God's children make connections both spiritually (with His Word) and physically (with God's people). Our heart is to create and provide:

  • A safe, fun, learning environment that COMPELS each child/volunteer to grow in his/her relationship with God.
  • An avenue that helps each child/volunteer CONNECT (to join, link, and fasten together) spiritually with their heavenly Father, socially with their peers, and personally with their small group leaders...it's all RELATIONAL!
  • A time of learning that will help parents RAISE spiritually-mature children who know and believe that God is who He says He is and that He will do what He promises to do.

Target Groups

Check-in and Check-out Procedure

Based on our check-in system, each child and parent are assigned a matching numbered tag. If the parent is needed during the service, a CM3 Leader will first try to locate the parent visually. If they are unable to find the parent, the leader will ask the media department to flash the child's zone and number across the main sanctuary screen. Upon seeing the number, the parent should meet the CM3 Zone Leader in the foyer.

Check-In: Children MUST BE accompanied by an adult over the age of 17 in order to be checked-in.

  • The adult will write his/her name and the child's name on the appropriate sign-in sheet.
  • A matching numbered tag is then given, one to the child and one to the adult.
  • The child is escorted to his/her classroom by zone.
  • Children are NOT allowed to leave any zone without being checked-out.

Check-Out: Children MUST BE checked-out by an adult over the age of 17.

  • The adult must present the matching numbered tag at the check-in kiosk.
  • The adult then waits for their child's name to be called.
  • When the child arrives, teacher matches tags.
  • If tags match, the child is released.

*DiscoveryKids: adults MUST show a picture ID at check-in and check-out. The same adult checking in should be the same adult checking out unless otherwise noted in writing.

CM3 Building Evacuation

Please DO NOT proceed to the child's classroom. They can be found in the following designated areas: Fairburn Campus children are escorted to the playground and PTC Campus children to the grassy area in the front parking lot. They will remain there with CM3 Leaders to await the "all clear" call, at which time they will re-enter the building. At that point, dismissal will begin using the usual "matching tag" procedure.

If "all clear" call is not given, dismissal will take place at the designated areas using the usual "matching tag" procedure.

Please DO NOT try to retrieve a child until dismissal begins at which time dismissal protocol will be followed. This ensures the safety of each child and the sanity of each teacher.

Curriculum Used

  • DiscoveryKids uses a "downsized" version of guiKids.
  • guiKids is a virtue-based curriculum written "in-house."
  • GalaxyKids uses a multi-media driven curriculum in conjunction with small groups.

CM3 is a "volunteer" based ministry. Parents are encouraged to participate in the investment of their children and the children of NCC.
