Child Safety

All volunteers working in Children’s Ministry have gone through an application process and background screening. Teachers and helpers alike are trained in safety procedures, and we commit to always having at least two unrelated volunteers with the children at all times. A gluten-free, dairy-free snack (typically rice squares – similar to Rice Chex™) is served in many classes.

When you check your child in, you will receive one sticker for each of your children, and one for you. The child’s sticker has a unique 5-digit alphanumeric code on it, and yours will have all of your children’s codes. When you come to pick up your child, you must present this matching sticker to the Teacher.

If we need to reach you during the service, we will project the child’s code on the projection screens in the main meeting. If your child’s code is displayed, please come to your child’s classroom.

If your child is ill, or has had a fever within the last 24 hours, we ask that you not bring them to Children’s Ministry. You may stay with your child in the Parent and Toddler Rooms on the main level, where you’ll be able to listen to the sermon while your child plays quietly or rests.

We take child protection seriously, and have developed some guidelines to help us promote child safety. Please take a minute to review our Child Protection Guidelines.

For more information and to check in your children, please stop by the Children’s Ministry Help Desk after 9:30 a.m. It is located in the Basement Lobby.
