Children’s Church Service

We offer children’s church each Sunday during the 11 am service. Review the information on this page in preparation for your child to attend children’s church.

Registration

You must register your children for Children’s Church before they are able to attend. Registration is completed online at www.tinyurl.com/kidscfc. Registration is important because it helps us keep appropriate health and safety limits in the classroom and it helps us keep track of everyone!

Check-in

Everyone entering the church must wear a mask or face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Check-in begins at 10:45 am and ends at 11:05 am. The process is listed below:

  1. Enter through the Berkeley Street entrance.
  2. Parent/Guardian and children must utilize the hand sanitizer provided to clean your hands.
  3. Complete the Kid’s Health Screening Check-in Questionnaire online using your cell phone. A few paper copies will be available for those who need it.
  4. Children will have their temperature checked via a touchless thermometer.
  5. Parents/Guardians will sign their names on the sign-in sheet next to their child’s name.
  6. The children will proceed to the classroom.

Check-Out

After service ends, one Parent/Guardian should proceed downstairs to the children’s church classroom.

  1. Parent/Guardian must wait in the hallway near the classrooms (socially distanced from other parents).
  2. Parent/Guardian gives the name of their child to the teacher and initial the sign-in/out sheet.
  3. Children are dismissed with their Parent/Guardian.

COVID-19 Procedures

We are doing everything we can to keep our church environment safe and healthy for our families. We have

  • Implemented cleaning protocols to clean common surfaces in the classrooms before and after each service.
  • Installed hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the church.
  • Health screenings for all volunteers.
  • Required face coverings for people entering the church.
  • Modified the layout of classrooms to reduce classroom size.
  • Removed toys and games from the classroom.
  • Provided individual containers of supplies for each child that will be separate and labeled so that that no sharing of supplies will be necessary.

Please be advised…

  • There will be NO toys or games in the classrooms.
  • Children will NOT be allowed to bring toys from home (because they will, inevitably, share).  Any toys or items brought will be placed in a baggie or bag and returned at the end of class. Parents, of course, will be advised that if their child requires a comfort toy or object, they will need to stay home.
  • Kids will NOT be permitted to bring cell phones to class. If your child has a cell phone, they must keep it stored away during class. If they do not keep it stored away, it will be placed in a baggie and returned at the end of class.
  • Children will NOT be permitted to eat snacks and drink in the classroom.
  • Students requiring a beverage will be escorted to a water dispenser where they can obtain water and finish it at the dispenser and then return to the classroom.
  • Teachers CANNOT assist children with using the restroom, if your child needs assistance using the restroom, a volunteer will bring your child to you for assistance.
  • If we become aware of any cases of COVID-19, we will contact the families and volunteers at CFC to make them aware of a COVID-19 case while maintaining confidentiality.
  • We will advise sick individuals (and/or parents of sick kids) not to return to church until they have met the CDC’s criteria to discontinue home isolation.
  • If any changes occur in the children’s church schedule (including closure) due to COVID-19, we will notify families and volunteers as soon as possible.
