WHEN: This service is Sunday mornings during the 11:00 service in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone will be in the main worship service in the Sanctuary until after the music is done in that service. At that time all kids will be dismissed to go to their service in the Fellowship Hall.
WHO: Kids Worship is for kids age 4 through Grade 3.
WHAT HAPPENS: Kids Worship starts with everyone together doing a game or activity. It always has high energy and gets everyone involved. After the opening game we will have the children read a portion of scripture leading into the main lesson given by one of our teachers. Then the kids break off into age appropriate groups where they will have activities to do together. After break out groups all the kids return to the Fellowship Hall to share with each other what they learned and finish singing a couple songs all together.
WHO ARE THE TEACHERS: We have over 20 adults invested in this ministry. All of them love the Lord and love children. As always, all of the adults in our church have had a background check and take your child's safety very seriously. Our leaders are on a 3 week rotation so they can worship in the main service as well.
SAFETY: We have made safety a huge priority with our Kids Worship. We want to make sure the kids are comfortable, have fun and learn, while the parents can be assured they are in good hands. Because of this we have a very detailed sign in and sign out policy. Every kid in Kid's Worship must have a wristband. That means they have signed in. You can sign in for Kid's Worship & Sunday School at the Welcome Center 9:15-9:45, 10:45-11:00 or when the kids are dismissed for Kid's Worship. During the worship service we will dismiss all the kids who already have wristbands to go with our leaders to the back. We will have an adult at every door and to the hallway, sanctuary and Fellowship Hall to make sure your kids get where they need to go. Then we will dismiss the kids (and a parent) who have not yet signed in (or received a wrist band) to Kid's Worship. Signing in is important so that we know who each kid can be dismissed to and so we don't have people picking up children that shouldn't be. Every child in Kid's Worship MUST be picked up by an approved adult from the sign in sheet.
We are very excited about the launch of this new ministry. If you have ay questions or would like to get involved please contact Pastor Dave Aubrey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
