Children at Peace
Checking In Your Child
When you walk in the main doors at Peace Church, you'll see a our Children's Ministry Wing on your left. "The Ark" is our central hub for kids on Sunday mornings.
The check-in process begins prior to the start of service. The first time you come, we will put your household information into our system. This system will print a child tag and a parent identification number that matches only your child(ren) to prevent any safety issues. Keep this parent tag safe because you will need it for pick-up.
Different Ages, Different Options
During our Sunday morning services, you'll have a variety of options for your children depending on their ages.
INFANTS AND TODDLERS (UP TO 4 YEARS)
Toddlers (18mo-3yrs) should be checked in to Nursery prior to the worship service at "The Ark" and can be picked up directly after the service.
Currently, due to COVID, we are not offering nursery for infants under 18 months.
KIDS THROUGH 4th GRADE
For young children up to fourth grade, we have Peace Kids available during the service. Parents can check the kids in at "The Ark" prior to the service and pick them up directly after the service. For more information, click here.
CHILDREN 5th grade & older
For kids in fifth grade and older, we recommend worshiping together as a family for the entire worship service. For more intentional discipleship for these age groups, we encourage families to come back on Sunday nights for Caraway Street, youth groups, and adult Faith Formation classes.
Protecting the children in our care is our first priority. We ask that when you return to pick your child up you bring your parent tag to verify which child is yours. Only authorized parents, guardians, or approved adults are allowed to check children out. Siblings under 18 will not be allowed to check a child out of nursery. You must have your parent tag on your person at the time of pick up.
Our nursery is staffed by many different volunteers. Each one has gone through a training class and had background checks to ensure that they are just right for caring for your children. We do not require parents to help in the nurseries but we do encourage them to get involved in some way.
