One of our primary goals for Children’s Ministry is to provide a safe and secure place for children to learn about Jesus and have fun. We do that through several measures, all of which are meant to keep our ministry secure and provide peace of mind for parents.
We employ a name tag system. Each child is given a name tag that is placed upon the child’s back. As the parent, you are given a tag that corresponds with your child’s. When you come to pick up your child, you must show the parent tag to the teacher and they will match it with your child’s name tag.
Safety within the classroom includes a policy that no volunteer will be alone with a child or group of children under any circumstance. There will always be at least two volunteers with a child or classroom at all times-No Exceptions.
Finally, all of our volunteers and teachers have gone through an application process, an interview, received basic children’s ministry training, and have had a national background check to provide added security.
