When You Arrive

Your kids are important to us! Safety is vital as families entrust their children to us each week. We take safety and security very seriously for two very important reasons. First, children are precious to us and we strive to take the best care of them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Secondly, we want you to feel comfortable leaving your child in our care. We want parents to be able to participate in worship and Bible study knowing that their children are being cared for in the best possible way.

You and your child will be given matching security tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name badge portion of your matching security tags, which bears a code that is matched to your portion during checkout at the end of the service.During checkout, you will return to the nursery and show your tag in order for your child to be released to back to you.The following is a list of steps that we have taken to ensure that all children are safe and secure in the Children’s Ministry department:

•Volunteers and paid staff are screened (including a background check) and receive training before working in any classroom

•We maintain a “two adult rule” in all classrooms • Security name tags are used for all children in our church nursery

•Silent pagers are available (for parents of infants and toddlers)

•There is only one entrance and exit into the nursery area and the only the approved workers for that shift may be in the nursery at that time.
