Children’s Ministry

Our children’s ministry exists to serve the youngest in our church family. We want to partner with parents to help children learn what it means to be a follower of Christ.

check-in

When you arrive on a Sunday morning

We know that getting young kids to church isn’t always an easy process, and so we want to do everything we can to make the Sunday morning drop-off as smooth and secure as possible.

All our volunteers are trained and background checked before they start serving. We have security measures in place for both drop-off and pick up, and children will never be in a room with less than two adults.

We do our best to create a welcoming, safe, and fun environment for your kids so that your whole family can focus on worship and learning.

 

01.

Locate your child’s classroom. If you come in the back entrance the children’s hallway is the main hallway on your left. If you come in the side entrance the children’s hallway will be on your right.

Look for signage to direct you to the proper classroom for your child. 

02.

Once you arrive at your child’s classroom sign them in and take the numbered card that correspond with the row of your child’s name on the sign in sheet. For younger children (Nursery-1st Grade) there are two of each number. Pin one card to the back of your child’s shirt and keep the other card with you. For older children (2nd-5th Grade) there is only one card for each child. Take this card with you after you drop off your child.

03.

When you come to pick up your child you will need to present your card to the workers before your child will be released to you. Our volunteers will make sure that your card matches your child’s number. The purpose of this procedure is to make sure that each child is released to the proper parent or guardian. Thank you in advance for your patience and participation in this process.

Classrooms

On Sunday mornings we provide five children’s classrooms.
