Kids Ministry at Concord

At Concord Church, our kids (birth-grade 5) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

Our Sunday morning Kids Ministry
plans to reopen November 1

As we reopen our building for Kids Ministry on Sundays, we want to make sure that we’re able to do it as safely as possible. Beginning November 1, we plan to offer Kids Worship at 10:30am on Sundays. We will not offer 9am kids classes until further notice.

Because we need to limit the number of kids per classroom, RSVPs are required each week. You can RSVP using the link below. Registration closes at noon on the Friday before the service.

Here is what we have in place for families with children on Sunday mornings at 10:30am

COVID-19 Safety Information For Kids

  • Everyone age 3 and older must wear a mask for the entirety of their visit.
  • We will require temperature checks for kids and volunteers to enter. Temperatures must be below 100.4ºF. If your kids have experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms within the past week (with or without a fever), please keep them at home.
  • Please have kids use the restroom before checking in.
  • All kids and volunteers will use hand sanitizer upon arriving and between activities.
  • We will use minimal supplies, and the supplies we do use will be sanitized before and after each use.
  • All kids will have their own supply bag with crayons and pencils marked with their name to use each week. Do not bring any items from home, including toys, books, water bottles, and bags.
  • We will do our best to have everyone stay a safe distance apart.
  • If someone in our program tests positive for COVID-19, we will notify all who were in contact with that person as soon as possible.

Arrival and check-in procedures

FOR BIRTH-KINDERGARTEN

  • Park in the back parking lot, and use the back door to enter the building. This will help reduce cross-traffic for families.
  • Check in your kids at the preschool office window, just inside the back doorway. A volunteer will take your kids to their rooms and will bring them back to you.
  • Diaper bags are required to be reduced to a zip-lock bag with only diapers and wipes. We will provide a zip-lock bag if needed. Do not include food items as we cannot feed kids at this time.

FOR GRADE SCHOOL

  • Park in the front parking lot, and use the main doors to enter the building.
  • Check in your kids at the big blue wall in the Atrium. A volunteer will take your kids to their rooms and will bring them back to you.

Your first visit

Here’s what to expect when visiting Concord Kids for the first time:

First, find a kids check-in station. Check-in stations are located at the big blue wall in the main lobby (where 1st-5th grade meets) and downstairs on the first floor (where birth-kindergarten meets). There we will meet your family, check your child in to our system, and one of our volunteers will direct you to their meeting room. Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child’s name
  • Child’s birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

Because we need to limit the number of kids per classroom, RSVPs are required each week. You can RSVP using the link below. Registration closes at noon on the Friday before the service.

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at the big blue wall in the main lobby or downstairs in the preschool area. You and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on the the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you’ll need to show your tag to a Kids volunteer in order for your child to be released back to you.

VBS

VBS 2020, which was scheduled for July 13-17, has been canceled. VBS (Vacation Bible School) is one of the highlights of our year in Kids Ministry and is open to kids 4 years old through completion of 5th grade. Hundreds of kids and volunteers fill our building for a week of music, crafts, games, and fun.
