Kid City is created just for kids! It is filled with exciting environments designed to create a fun place for our kids to learn about God. Engaging teaching methods combined with awesome volunteers who care about kids make Kid City a place where parents can know their children are building strong spiritual foundations.
Your child's safety is just as important to us as it is to you. In Kid City, we go to great lengths to create safe environments so that you and your kids have a great experience. From matching parent and child security tags to every volunteer being screened with an interview and a federal background check, we make sure that all our kids are learning about God in the safest environment.
Kid City is the place to be!

Kid's Ministry Mission
Diamod Willow Ministries
Diamond Willow Ministries formed in 2002 for the purpose of building and strengthening the people of our community, the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation in Fort Thompson, South Dakota. This is being accomplished by bringing people into a relationship with Creator God through Jesus Christ. Diamond Willow Ministries (DWM) meets people's spiritual and emotional needs through personal mentoring relationships and the teaching of Biblical truths and principles. Meeting the many critical physical needs we see here is a primary outlet for showing Christian love and compassion.
The following are some of the ways Diamond Willow Ministries is able to serve the community:
- Tokata Youth Center, operates after school and during summers to empower youth in the community to be our future leaders while providing a safe place to be and a daily meal.
- Cantemawaste Youth Camps, Summer Camps for Christian fun and learning.
- Wednesday night family supper, fellowship and Bible study.
- Discipleship, individual Bible studies, individual counseling, and support through personal relationships.
- The Ikce Oyate Christian Center provides a place for worship, youth events, Bible studies, and a base for visiting workgroups. “Ikce Oyate” is a Dakota language phrase that means, “Common People”.
- Providing assistance to individuals for needed food, emergency travel expenses, and critical home repairs
