kids Ministry

Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ; teaching them to know God intimately, 

love Him passionately and to serve Him faithfully.  We desire to build bridges to families and equip them.  

In the process, we are committed to enlist, equip and encourage others to do the same.

SUNDAY MORNING NURSERY & KIDS MINISTRY

NURSERY: 

Nursery care is available inside our spacious and clean nursery for babies & toddlers ages 0–2 years during both the 8:30 indoor services, as well as the 10:30 outdoor services. Our loving volunteers and nursery attendants are all cleared with background checks according to PA state requirements.  

 

NURSING MOMS: 

Our private and comfortable Nursing Mom’s Room is located right next to the Nursery for your convenience.

 

KIDS MINISTRY: 

We have three separate spaces for kids age 3 (must be potty-trained) through 5th grade during 10:30 outdoor services:

 

Preschool (Ages 3-5): Children's Worship Center

                  Grades K-3: Outdoor Kids Venue

                  Grades 4-5: Student Ministries Facility

 

All teachers and helpers are cleared with background checks according to PA state requirements.  

 

REGISTRATION: 

All kids will need to have a 2020-2021 SafeCheck Registration Form on file in order to be checked into the Nursery or any Kid's Ministry classes. CLICK HERE to register online. We prefer that parents do not wait to fill it out on site, as this causes congestion at the Kid's Ministry Welcome Center.

 

ON ARRIVAL: 

The Kids Ministry Welcome Center is located at the front of the building under the carport during the 10:30 outdoor services. Here, you will be greeted by our friendly staff and volunteers who will assist you in getting your child checked in to the Nursery or their Kids Ministry classes. All kids must be checked in before heading to their classroom locations. We offer touchless check-in kiosks for parents using the Church Center App. This allows parents to pre-check their kids in through the app, then simply hold the QR code up to one of our kiosk stations where name labels and parent security tags will print. For parents who don’t have the app, our volunteers can check kids in from the Welcome Center as well. Cards with all pick-up/drop-off locations are available at the desk and someone will be happy to show you where to go.

 

DURING SERVICE: 

In the event we need to reach you during service, our system will generate a text message to the number we have on file. Please keep your phone nearby and report to the Kids Ministry Welcome Center when you receive the message.

 

CHURCH CENTER APP: 

Once we have received your SafeCheck Registration Form, your info will be entered into our system. After that, you will be able to download and use the Church Center App to check-in your kids on Sunday Mornings. Check out THIS VIDEO on how to set up the app, and THIS VIDEO on how to use the touchless kiosks.

Splash into Summer

This year Kids Ministry is splashing all summer long!

 

During the months of June - August, we have fun, kids-only events every Wednesday (grouped by age) plus monthly family nights where we can all come together and make memories with our entire church family.

 

Kids get to experience time with friends, great teaching, fun games, crafts, and more as we work through three fun, Biblical themes.
