Kids

At First Naples we partner with parents to create the first building blocks of a strong, Gospel-centered, Bible-driven foundation for our children. We teach children on a level that they can understand using God's Word as our guide!

Joining us for the first time?

If you are planning to check your children into Kids Ministry for the first time, you can do the paperwork before you arrive. Once you arrive, stop by the Kids Ministry desk in the Commons and our team will assist you with registration, or you may pre-register below before your visit. We’ll gather some basic information about your child and family, enter it into the check-in database, and print name-tags and security tags for your family. Our team will lead you to your child’s room and help in any way possible to ensure you and your child have a wonderful experience.

**Please notify our team of any allergies or special needs.**

<h4>Special Events</h4>

Special Events

We’ve got great special events that your family can participate in. Be on the lookout for the World’s Coolest Christmas Party, Vacation Bible School, Trunk & Treat, Kids Camp, Family Missions Trips and other fun events for the whole family to enjoy together!

Spiritual Milestones

No one will have more spiritual influence in your child’s life than you. We’re here to help to maximize your influence, so your child receives a great foundation. Spiritual Milestones are one of the primary ways we do this. These are spiritual steps in your child’s life that we want to celebrate with you.

Milestone 1 | Parent + Child Dedication

Parents attend a class and discover how to become spiritual leaders for their child. They then participate in a Parent/Child dedication ceremony.

Milestone 2 | First Grade Bible Presentation

Parents present a Bible to their child during a special ceremony at the beginning of their child’s first grade year in school.

Milestone 3 | First Steps Class + Baptism

Children attend a four-week class that helps them understand what it means to be a Christian. This class is a prerequisite for children who want to be baptized.

Safety + Check In

Check-In kiosk are located in our kids' areas. Parents will receive two tags per child plus one pick up tag per family: Your child will wear a name tag and the tag labeled "teacher copy" will be given to your child's teacher. The family security tag will be used for pick-up. When you are ready to pick up your child, present the security tag to your child's teacher.

If we need to reach you during the service, we will send a text message to the cell phone number that we have on file. Please return to the hallway that you dropped your child off in and our team will assist you and your child.
