Where do I park? What do I do when I arrive?
The Kids entrance is located at the Main Entrance of the sanctuary at the back of the building right now.
What is your health/wellness policy?
Everyone is asked to check in before entering the building. A Connect team member will be there to greet you and check you in. If you are a first time visitor, you will be asked to register to check in. There is a list of health check questions that are asked to ensure the health and safety of everyone entering the building. These questions include:
- Have you had or do you have any symptoms of Covid-19 within the last 7-14 days? (Fever, shortness of breath, tightness in chest, etc.)
- Have you recently been in contact with anyone who has had or currently has Covid-19?
- Are you at-risk or live with anyone who is at-risk?
How do we check in?
Masks should be worn in the building at all times unless for a medical reason. We ask that you observe social distancing as well as practice proper hand washing and disinfecting as appropriate. Should you or your child be sick, have symptoms of a cold, or have been exposed to COVID in the prior 7-14 days, please watch church from home until it is safe to return to in-person gatherings.
What are some additional measures you are taking? There is one entrance and one exit for Kids Church. Drop off is at the sanctuary lobby. Parents pick up in the gym. Tables and chairs are spaced 6 ft apart. We are collecting info for contact tracing but not sharing your info. There is 1 teacher and 1-2 helpers per room/per service only. There is no sharing of materials during class.
Where does my kid go?
Parents/caregivers or any children not attending Kids Church or Radical Sundays will check in outside. Kids attending Kids Church or Radical Sundays will be shown into the sanctuary lobby to the Kids Church check in located at the top of the gym stairs.
Kids attending Kids Church will check in and receive a name tag and parents will receive a claim tag with a unique ID of letter/numbers that will need to be shown when you pick your child(ren) up at the end of the service. If your child requires medical attention or is distressed, the unique claim ID code assigned to your child that day will be displayed on the sanctuary video screen.
What will my child be doing?
Parents will drop off their child and a volunteer will bring your child to their classroom. Parents will go directly to the host desk in the lobby to be seated for service.
Who will be with my child?
Each classroom has been set up with chairs and tables spaced 6 ft apart with family units sitting together. Lessons are a combination of video and teaching. Each child will have their own sanitized box of supplies that will be disinfected between services.
How do I pick up my child after service?
All Staff as well as Children’s and Youth Ministry volunteers are trained in our safety protocol procedures for both fire and intruder situations and have passed a background check. In addition, volunteers must provide two character references (both of which must be CCC members if the volunteer has attended CCC for less than 6 months). There will be a teacher in each classroom along with 1-2 “helpers” and hallway monitor.
What happens in an emergency?
Parents/caregivers with the claim tag of the child(ren) will exit to the sanctuary lobby and go down the main stairs to pick up at classrooms. Volunteers & staff will be in the hallways to help direct you. Once a claim tag has been shown to the teacher, you and your child(ren) are asked to follow the exit signs to the back patio. We appreciate your cooperation to have one way traffic in the hallways.
What is the food/drink policy?
In the unlikely event of an EMERGENCY EVACUATION, we ask that parents/guardians DO NOT pick up their children. Staff members and volunteers have been trained and instructed on how to quickly evacuate the children from the building. All children in kids church will be escorted to the gazebo in the back parking lot and will be released to their parents once the fire personnel indicate it is safe to do so.
There will not be any food/drink available during Kids Church. A parent can send a child with a water bottle if needed.
