Children's Church FAQ's
We hope that you will consider having your child involved in children’s church. Children have lost out on so many group and recreational activities last year. We know that kids learn Biblical truth “precept upon precept”. Now is a great time to get them back into learning God’s Word with other children on Sunday mornings.
Below are answers to some questions you may have when considering bringing your child to Children's Church. While COVID-19 protocols are rapidly changing, we will try to keep each child safe according to current requirements and the comfort level of parents.
Who is the Target Audience?
Children preschool through 4th grade, in 2 separate programs: PreK/K and 1st-4th grade.
Where do parents drop off/check in?
ONE parent should drop off at the Single point of entry by the downstairs gym entrance. After dropping off, parents may return upstairs for the worship service. Parents will be asked a quick few screening questions and also leave their cell # upon check in. Parents will be texted if their child has a need or shows signs of sickness.
What Time is the check in?
One parent should drop their child off between 9:45-9:55 and check in. This allows time to check in and then head into the worship service without being rushed or late.
*Children will be asked to wash their hands upon check in.
What time do I Pick up my child?
At the end of the worship service, pick up is at the same location as the drop off by the Gym doors.
What activities will the kids do?
Children will participate in a worship time, allowing them to sing, do motions and move around, while socially distanced. Children will learn a Bible verse and receive a Bible message each week in the large group setting. Children will also participate in hands-on activities and go outside (weather permitting) for no contact games. We will have back up supplies of individualized crafts for when the kids can’t go outside to play.
What about the sharing of supplies?
Each child will have their own bag with simple art supplies, and materials, that will remain at the church for only that child to use each week.
How many children can attend?
To start, we have capacity for 7 Prek/K children with 2 adult leaders. We have capacity for 15 1st-4th graders with 3 leaders. We have a target goal of serving 22 children each week, as a starting point.
Will the kids get to play outside?
Yes, weather permitting, each group will have a chance for outdoor activity in the grassy area outside!
