Equipping Kids to Follow Jesus
At Chapel Kids, our team is dedicated to partnering with parents so that together we can equip children to follow Jesus. Whether by a caregiver's comforting touch or a teacher bringing the Bible to life, we strive to make Chapel a place where kids want to be so they can become more known, connected, and empowered in their relationships with Jesus and their church family.
Is Your Family New to Chapel?
We would love to know more about your family and connect with you before or following your visit. We'll need this information to check your child into Chapel Kids events and programs.
What children's programs do you have on Sunday mornings?
We have 4 classrooms open at the 9:30 service on Sunday morning. We strive to have 2 adults and 1 youth helper in each classroom.
- Third - Fifth Grade
- Kindergarten - Second Grade
- Pre-K 4 and 5 year olds, must turn 4 by December 31st
- Toddler Classroom, mobile toddlers younger than 4 by January 1st
The toddler classroom is open for drop-off care as often as we have two adults serving in the classroom. If two adults are not available, the classroom adjust to our family viewing room. The service is broadcast in the toddler room where parents can watch and children can play. Parents are also welcome to attend the service with their children, too.
Families with children not yet walking are welcome to attend service with their child, participate in Worship in the Family Room attached to the sanctuary, or watch from the Toddler Room when it is being used as the family viewing area.
What other opportunities do you have for kids?
Awana, Sundays from 2:30 - 4 PM. Ages 2 through 5th Grade. Registration required. Begins September 19.
Kids Play, Drop-in Playgroup, 9:30 - 11 AM. Birth through age 5. Start date TBD.
When should my child stay home?
Please maintain the following guidelines in determining if your child is well enough to attend Chapel Kids Programming. If your child has any of the following symptoms, he/she should not attend programming. Any child should be symptom-free for 24 hours before attending:
- Persistent coughing, croup, or sneezing
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Green or cloudy runny nose
- Inflamed throat or mouth
- Runny or pink eye
- Any skin inflammation such as rashes, ringworm, impetigo
- Symptoms of any childhood disease (chickenpox, measles, mumps, etc)
- Head lice (24 hours following treatment)
Children and adults will not attend the program if any of the following can be answered “yes”:
- Are you experiencing any symptoms such as fever (100.00 and above), cough, shortness of breath, chills, fatigue, muscle/body aches, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea?
- Have you had ‘close contact’ with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19? ‘Close contact’ means living in the same household as a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, caring for a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, being within 6 feet of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more, or coming in direct contact with secretions (e.g. sharing utensils, being coughed on) from a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, while that person was symptomatic.
- Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by their doctor or a local public health official?
