When packing a diaper bag for the nursery, what should I include?
Please label your child’s belongings so they can be easily identified by our volunteers.
How do I volunteer?
Visit our volunteer page, and use our volunteer tool. If you are wanting to volunteer specifically in the Children's Ministry, be sure to check that you like working with kids (of course) so that you will get results for the Children's Ministry. Download a Volunteer Application and return it to Shon or April.
What are the Health Guidelines for my child's classroom?
We want to provide a healthy environment in our classrooms, so we ask you to keep your child at home when you observe any of the following:
For your child’s protection, we ask our Teachers & Caregivers to follow the same guidelines.
How is my child's classroom determined?
For Birth to 5 Year Olds, room assignments are based upon your child’s age as of August 31st. This promotes better learning and safety, as kids are grouped with others of similar age and development.
For Elementary kids, their classroom at church will match their grade at school. So if your child is in 4th grade at school, they are in 4th grade at church.
My child is hesitant to go to class. Any suggestions?
We encourage parents to give their child a quick hug/kiss, place them in their classroom, and then head to their Worship Service or class. While it's tempting to linger, keep in mind that long drawn-out goodbyes actually increase anxiety in kids. Even if your child cries or is a little bit uneasy when you first leave, they will adjust quickly. Our volunteers will welcome and connect with your child, and help him/her to calm down and get involved in the class. If for any reason we need you, we will contact you immediately.
