Family and Kids Get Higher

Music and high holy inspiration for all ages.

This year, choose from a full suite of programs, designed just for your family. Join us for indoors for our morning family service, followed by an outdoor Family Street Fest, with activities and fun for the whole family! And also new this year, we’re offering some great programs just for tweens and teens.

If you would like your child to attend the main service with you, you’ll need to purchase a ticket to the main service ($15 a service for kids 3 – 12). If you and your children only want to attend the family service and family programs, you only need to register for the family track.
