Children’s Corner Update

The Children’s Corner is open onsite at 10:30 a.m.,  for 3- to 5-year-old children only.

We have been working hard to prepare for this, and are excited to share the upgrades that have been made:

Our Welcome Center, Security Team, Child and Youth Welfare Team, and teachers who serve any minors in the church participated in a new Child Safety Training program hosted by the Baptist Convention of MD/DE this summer. (All of our teachers/volunteers have been background checked, according to our usual policy.)

The Child/Youth Protection Policy was covered with this group to refresh their knowledge of the ways we work to keep minors safe from abuse of any kind.

The classrooms have been not just sanitized but cleared of old toys and have been given a freshly painted facelift!

Here are some steps we are taking to ensure the safety of the children who will be served by our ministry:

Security: We’ll reopen the use of Kid Check for parents to use to match children with parents during pickup, and security team members will periodically monitor the classrooms.

Healthy Behaviors: Teachers and children will need to submit to a temperature check, we will provide and use hand sanitizer, and both children and teachers will be required to wear masks until further notice.

Physical Safety: We’ll sanitize the classrooms both before and after the class, and children will be in 2 age-based classrooms.

Come early to get your child checked in and settled, so that you are ready and in your seat for the service, which starts promptly at 10:30.
