Sundays can be a challenge. You're trying to corral the whole family to head to church, but one kid can't find their shoes, another wants to go to their soccer game, and the third wants to know how babies are made.
Luckily, Cornerstone has you covered (at least when it comes to what to do with your kids when they arrive). We have a thriving Kid’s Ministry where they can grow in their faith and learn about foundational Bible stories that will impact their lives. Think about the first time you envisioned Jonah inside the whale or Noah and all his animals in the ark. With these fun topics, your kids will be begging to go back to children’s church every Sunday.
Whatever location you attend we take kids from birth to 5th grade, group them by age, and teach them about Jesus in fun, child-friendly ways.
If your child is under six and you’d like to sit with them, c’mon up! Here you’ll find toys and coloring sheets for them and seating for you. It's the perfect way to take part in fun children's church activities without the fear that your child will be the one who cries the whole way through a message you really wanted to hear. Plus, you can meet other parents and discuss which of your babies is cuter.
We've picked up a few things throughout the years. While our children's church music and games are made to be fun for everyone, the following rules makes it easier on kids, parents, and volunteers.
No toys from home
Other kids get jealous, and the toy might get lost or broken.
Breakfast & Bathroom
Doing both of these before getting here is huge.
Time to Adjust
Getting here early gives extra time for your child to get settled.
If your little one has been ill in the last 24 hours, we ask that you stay home (and with the live stream, you won’t miss the message).
Although we want to teach your kids about stories from the Bible like when Moses' staff turned into a snake — but we promise to leave the live prop at home. Here are some of our rules to keep your kids safe while your family enjoys CornerstoneSF.
Check-in & Check-out
Kids get a nametag and you get the stub so that only you can pick them up.
We background check and fingerprint every volunteer.
Rule of Two
Two teachers are required in each class.
At Mission, in case we need you ASAP, you’ll get an emergency pager.
At Riordan, look at the side screens and your ticket number will show up on the bottom of the screen if your child needs assistance.
All classes are monitored every Sunday.
If your kids beg to go to more children's church events, we have the solution for you. CornerstoneSF has quarterly groups on Friday nights on top of all our regular Sunday activities for kids. It's a great way for kids to connect with others in the church and still learn an important lesson through music and stories. Take a look at what's coming up.

A Child Dedication Service is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God, and eventually the child will have a personal relationship with Jesus.
In many ways, a "child dedication" service is truly a "parent dedication" service, as parents publicly declare to raise their child in God's Word until the child is old enough to make his/her own personal decision to be a follower of Christ. It's also a time for family, friends, and Cornerstone Church body to say, "we will partner with you as best we can."
You can register here to receive all information you will need for your child/ren to be dedicated on Saturday, November 9, 2019, held at Cornerstone Mission.
If you have older children, please check them in their respective classrooms no later than 11:45A. You may bring your infant with you to the meeting.
Please arrive on time so the class can start & finish promptly for any Q&A, and/or attend the service to hear the message.
Time: 10:15 AM
Room: Middle School Room
