Kids will sit with their parents during adult worship (10:30 service only), then be dismissed just before the sermon to the fellowship hall for their own programming. We'll have a lesson and some fun interactive (no-contact) activities.
We will hand sanitize, take temperatures and masks must be worn before anyone can enter the fellowship hall. We will be following Covid guidelines for social distancing. Kids will have their own supplies to use (provided by the church) so there will be no sharing of crayons, markers, etc. The kids will be brought to the main lobby during the closing song to meet their parents. Contact Rhonda if you have any questions or concerns.
Check back as I will keep posting new resources as I find them!
This app helps connect kids with God's word in ways they'll understand. This website also includes a companion website for parents to use that complements the app. It provides resources like coloring pages, activity sheets, and video episodes.
Here are a few articles or videos that may give you new ideas in parenting your kids:

During CoVid, we are changing up our program a little bit for Preschoolers. J.A.M. is an video-based time of Bible stories for children ages 3 through kindergarten. This program will run concurrently with Adult Worship at 10:30 AM. Children start out in worship with their parents and are dismissed to J.A.M. part way through the service.
Rock Solid is our Kid's Worship for elementary age kids. It meets concurrently with adult worship at 10:30
each Sunday Morning. Kids start out in worship with their parents and are dismissed to Rock Solid part way through the service.
