Jesus is our lead story in every room of our House. In fact, He’s our only story – even in Passion Kids. We want to lean in with the families of our House who are raising a generation of children to know and walk in relationship with Jesus.
We are more than babysitters. We’ve designed our Passion Kids environment very intentionally to allow worship and teaching to come alive for the children of our House. Each child is assigned to a tent based on their grade, where boys meet with boys and girls with girls, being led by our amazing team of Passion Kids Door Holders. Each gathering is different but includes a mixture of tent time, exciting worship, an age-appropriate Bible story with a “Big Idea,” a “Remember Verse,” and fun activities.
We have the best Door Holders around who are passionate about helping every child who walks through the doors of Passion Kids feel seen, accepted, and more importantly are seen, loved and accepted by Jesus. All of our Door Holders have undergone a thorough screening process of interviews, background checks and training.
Passion Kids is offered during our 9:15a and 11:30a gatherings next door to Howard Theatre (1805 7th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001). You can either come to this location first, or just stop by Howard Theatre and one of our Door Holders will walk you to our Passion Kids environment.
Yes, we offer pre-care for our Door Holders that starts at 7:30a for our 9:15a gathering, and 10:45a for our 11:30a gathering. We do not offer pre-care for our 5p gathering.
Because children are placed in tents according to their grade and gender, your children may not be able to be in the same tent.
Upon your arrival to Howard Theatre, you will be greeted by the Passion City Church Parking Team who will direct you to available parking. We have parking available specifically for families with Passion Kids-aged children in the Federal Parking Deck located between Howard Theatre and our Passion Kids environment. For those with children in 5th grade or younger, please use your flashers to let our team know you need to park in a family spot within the deck.
Both Passion Kids doors and registration open at 8:50a for our 9:15a gathering, and 11:15 for our 11:30 gathering, prior to the gathering. Click here to register your child for Passion Kids.
To minimize the chance of spreading illness, children who show signs of sickness will not be accepted into the Passion Kids environment. We require that children be fever-free for 24 hours before entering Passion Kids. This is for the health and protection of all children and Door Holders. You are encouraged to bring your child back to us as soon as he or she is well. If an illness is discovered after a child is in the classroom, your child will be separated from the other children and a member of our Staff Team will contact you.
Upon recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should not be taken from the home with any of the following conditions:
