Summer Sunday School
June 6, 2021
Beginning June 6, we will offer in-person Sunday School for children 4 years old–incoming 5th graders.
CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT
Sunday School check-in is at the KIDS Kiosk right outside the Sanctuary. We will give your child a name tag and they will sit with you in the Sanctuary until called up to the front for the Time for KIDS. From there, they will be excused out of the Sanctuary and escorted to Oerter Hall* for Sunday School. You can pick-up your child from Oerter Hall immediately after the end of the service.
Before check-in, please make sure your child:
✔ is healthy
✔ has a mask
✔ is prepared to be outside (as weather permits)
✔ has used the bathroom
*We are currently meeting in Oerter Hall due to the Children's Wing construction.
TIME FOR KIDS
During the service, the Time for KIDS occurs after the announcements and worship time. Children are called to gather at the front of the Sanctuary for a brief children’s message or special blessing. If your child does not feel comfortable going up to the front of the Sanctuary for the Time for Kids, they are welcome to stay with you and walk out the back when children are dismissed for Sunday School.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING SUNDAY SCHOOL
Children will be assigned a special “spot” on the floor. Siblings will be grouped together to help minimize risk and exposure. During the hour, we will worship, hear an engaging Bible lesson and play some active games together. If the weather allows, we will enjoy time outside in the Courtyard.
SAFETY COMES FIRST
Health Check: Before entry, families will answer a series of health questions for their child.
Hand Sanitizer: Upon entry and exit of our space, all children will sanitize their hands.
Masks: We ask that all children wear a mask while inside our church.
Bathrooms: If a child needs to use the bathroom during our program, a KIDS team member will walk the child to the bathroom, making sure it is not in use by someone else. The team member will wait outside the bathroom to help the child sanitize their hands and walk back to class.
Cleaning: Our space and all toys/supplies will be disinfected before and after each Sunday School class to assure a sanitized experience for all.
NURSERY & YOUNG PRESCHOOL KIDS: 3yrs OLD & YOUNGER
We have not forgotten about you! We prioritize the safety of our children and volunteers. Due to the construction of our Children’s Wing, we are unable to provide nursery & young preschool care at this time. We truly miss our little ones so much!
We know worshipping together in the Sanctuary can be challenging when small children need to move. If you need to step out, you are welcome in the Narthex, where you can listen to the service. We also have a comfortable Parlor with a few toys available for your child to enjoy!
