HOW IS MY CHILD KEPT SAFE?
When you check-in your child at the Kiosk in the Nursery, you will be given a unique code tag and a matching coded name tag for your child. The only person who may pick up your child is the person who holds this unique code tag. All of our volunteers have a background check, and we’ll never allow an adult volunteer to be alone with your child. You can participate in the service assured that your child is having fun in a safe environment. If your child should need you during the service, we will call you with the number you provided at registration.
Check-In is required at the Kiosk in the Nursery. Parents can then drop-off/pick-up their child after service. For the safety of your child, we ask that parents present their code tag which identifies the child at pick-up.
We want to list out for you all that our Children’s Ministry environments will be doing to help ensure the health & safety of everyone in our ministry programs. We all know that God is bigger than any virus or sickness, yet we also want you to feel encouraged and safe as we do take cleanliness seriously in all our environments.
