The Tree House is the children's ministry of Big House Church that is designed to help your child grow in spirit and soul. We are committed to serving our families and the Tree House is a cornerstone of our church.


For first time visitors, our Tree House staff will take your personal information: parent’s names, children’s names, birthdates, phone number, and any special instructions. Children will be offered snacks and refreshments, so please advise us of allergies or dietary restrictions. This information is kept private on our secure database.

During Sunday Service, the nursery and toddler rooms are staffed and are available from 4:00 p.m., while the rest of our children worship with their parents in the sanctuary until 4:45 p.m. Once dismissed, parents accompany their children to the Tree House for check in, which is located at the back of the building. After registration is complete, parents are able to return to the sanctuary for our offering, announcements, and message, and will be prompted at 6:00 p.m. to pick up their kids.

During their time in the Tree House, children will be assigned to an age specific class: Nursery (0-1), Toddler (2-3), Pre School (4-5), Elementary (6-10) and Middle (11-13). 


During class, your child can expect spirit-filled teaching, discussion, AND FUN! And while in our care, your child’s safety is paramount. All our volunteers pass a background check and we employ an off-duty Norfolk police officer to patrol the building during Sunday Service. We also implement as tag system for check in, which helps us reach parents who are in the sanctuary.

We are excited to partner with you to disciple your children. We look forward to welcoming you and your little ones!
