Kingdom Kids: Infant through 3rd grade

  • Babies and one-year-olds may be brought to their respective rooms at any time during the morning service (10:00-11:30am)
  • For two year olds through five year olds we ask that you bring your children to their classrooms when you first arrive.
  • Kindergarten students through third graders stay with their parents during the first part of the service. At the break they should meet their teacher in the back of the sanctuary and their teacher will lead them to class.
  • All children must be picked up by a parent at the end of the service (11:30am).
  • Parents will need to present their label received at check in to the classroom teacher in order to pick up their child.

JAM: 4th and 5th Grade

  • Children stay with their parents during the first part of the service. At the break they should meet their teacher in the back of the sanctuary and their teacher will lead them to class.
  • All children must be picked up by a parent at the end of the service (11:30am).
  • JAM is designed to prepare the children for the Junior High group by equipping them with personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. We also seek to develop in the children a sense of personal discipline and service.
  • Adults serving in JAM are with the children every week. After the teacher presents the lesson for the day, children break up (by age) into small groups for the purposes of teaching and mentoring. Scripture memory, prayer, and personal sharing are all part of the time the children spend in their small groups.

Registration Policy:Kingdom Kids2

Each Sunday all children must be checked in by their parents at the front tables in the Kingdom Kids’ hallway. At registration parents receive their child’s name badge and a parent label. On the parent label is a number that corresponds to the child’s name badge. Children need to wear their name badge upon entering their classroom. Parents need to present their label to their child’s teacher when they go to pick up their child at the end of class.

Personal Belongings:

  • Children should not bring personal toys or items from home.
  • Please label any belongings (bags, cups) with your child’s name.

Accident Policy:

If a child is injured, an accident report will be completed and signed by both the teacher and the Director of Children’s ministry. The accident will be reported to the child’s parents.

Moving up to the next class:

  • Children age 3 and under will be promoted two times a year. When they are eligible to move up to the next class, they may move up on either the third Sunday of August or the third Sunday of February.
  • Children who are 4 years old or older by September 30th will move up to the next class on the third Sunday of August every year.

Guest Policy:

In the case of first-time guests, if siblings of different ages would like stay together and go to the same class, they may both attend the class of the younger sibling.
