When do you start teaching my child about the Bible?
We believe that from the very earliest age children can begin to learn about God and His love! From the first nursery class, we will talk and sing to your child about Jesus as we rock and feed him/her. As your child grows and learns, we plan age-appropriate, interactive ways for your child to learn more and more about our awesome God!
Is a security system in place to make sure that the right person picks up my child?
YES! Your child’s safety is very important to us! For birth through Kindergarten, we use a numbered tag system. When you check in your child at the classroom, you will receive a numbered tag that matches one that is attached to your child with his or her name tag. Before we release your child to you, we match the numbered tags. Children may only be released to a parent or designated adult. Nursery and preschool children are not to be picked up by older siblings.
I have a special needs child. Who should I contact with questions?
Is there a place for me to nurse my baby?
The nursing mother’s room is available during all services. It is across from the infant nursery room. The service is on a live audio feed into the room so that you can continue your worship as you care for your baby.
How will you find me if you need me during the service?
Faith Church has a paging system if we need you during a service for a nursery or preschool age child. The display is on the right wall of the sanctuary as you face the platform. The numbered tag you receive when dropping off your child will be the number that appears on the display if you are needed. We also ask you to indicate where you will be on the sign-in sheet in case we need to find you in a class when you are not in the service.
What kind of security check do the volunteers have to go through?
Adults who work with our children on a regular basis must have a background check and references are checked.
How do I know if my child is too sick to come to Sunday School or other Children’s Ministry activities?
In order to keep our Sunday School a happy and healthy place for children, we ask that you keep your children home when they are ill or exhibit any of these symptoms within 24 hours of church attendance.
- Any fever
- Runny eyes
- Ear pain
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Unusual fatigue or irritability
- Coughing, sneezing, runny nose with color.
Who should I call if I have a special story to tell, a concern to share, or a question to ask?
