Covid Procedures

The safety of your precious children is very important to us! We are following the protocols listed below.

We offer classes for children Birth – 5th grade during both the Saturday 5:00 service and the Sunday 10:30 service.  If you attend the parking lot service, please pull in and park in your desired spot in the parking lot, then walk your child(ren) into the building and to the check-in area.  For both services (until further notice), we ask that all children be dropped off before the beginning of the service (no mid-service drop-offs).  Please return to pick your child(ren) up as soon as the service ends, and take them with you to fellowship with other families.  

A staff member or specially trained volunteer will always be at the check-in area assisting families and ensuring protocols below are being followed.

Protocols:
• Children ages birth - 5 will be in the main Nursery room.  
• The hallway in the Children’s Area is one way (follow the signs).  
• Please have your child(ren) use the bathroom and wash their hands before coming to class.
• Hand sanitizer and a list of instructions can be found at each check-in kiosk.
• At the door to the check in area, we will take every person’s temperature with a no-touch thermometer and ask about symptoms.  Children with any fever or exhibiting any symptoms will not be allowed to come to class.
• One parent (per child) will be allowed into the Children’s Area to drop off or pick up their child(ren) at their class(es), then follow the one way signs around the hallways back out through the check-in door.  
• For pick up and drop off, only 3 families will be allowed in the Children’s Area at a time to ensure proper distancing.  Once one family/parent leaves, the next will be let in.
• All volunteers must wash hands as they arrive in their class (or just before if there is no sink in their room) and per CDC guidelines.
• All volunteers will wear face coverings at all times.
• Face coverings are not required for children 2 and under.  For those who are still getting used to wearing masks, we will gently encourage them to keep them on.  
• We have bins of toys for each service that are switched between services.  All toys are sanitized each week between uses.  Pagers and all surfaces are sanitized frequently.
• No snacks or drinks will be served or allowed in the classrooms except bottles for babies.
• In the 1st – 5th grade Kid’s Church class, children will stay in their small groups (appropriately distanced) for the duration of class (no large group gatherings or activities).  Small group activities that don’t involve shared items/touching are encouraged.  Face coverings are required for all children in this class at all times.

Please contact Amy with any questions.  We look forward to sharing God’s love with your children!
