Child Safety on Sunday Mornings
Child safety is a high priority. All children’s groups are led by at least 2 volunteers who have been background checked.
Before dropping off their children, parents “check in” their child(ren) on the lower level, either between 8:45 and 9:00 AM before Joy Central Sunday or between 10:00 and 10:30 AM before the Worship Service. Each child receives a wristband and the parent receives a matching card. When the parents pickup their children at 10:00 AM or at Noon, they show their card to the children’s workers to confirm each child is going home with the right parent.
9:00 AM — Joy Central Sunday
There is a children’s class for every age, staffed by dedicated adults who are committed to serving Jesus by guiding and teaching kids. Joy Central Sunday classes are from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
Children’s classes are located on the lower level of the church:
- Nursery, room 123
- 2’s & 3’s, room 125 (enter at room 123)
- Preschool-Kindergarten, room 131
- Grades 1-5, room 127
After Joy Central Sunday, children in the Nursery and 2’s & 3’s class may stay in their room while parents attend the Sunday morning Worship Service, then return to pick them up at Noon.
After Joy Central Sunday, older children are picked up by their parents at 10:00 AM and go to the Worship Service in the main level auditorium.
11:00 AM — Kids Worship
The Worship Service begins at 10:30 AM. After 20 to 30 minutes of singing, before the pastor’s message, children age 4 through grade 5 are dismissed to Kids Worship in rooms 127 and 131.
Other Programs for Children:
childcare, preschool, and before/after school care
Joy Central serves the entire family in a neighborhood environment. Our programs serve every age at flexible times that work for your family. We offer childcare & preschool, transportation to local schools, music lessons, and even homework help for the older ones. Occasionally families eat dinner together and parents attend drop in classes where they might make lasagna in the cooking class, share ideas about parenting a child with ADD, or discuss their ideas on God and spirituality. This is a place where children, parents, and staff grow together, dream big, and feel a sense of belonging.
Joy Central is open from 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
