A safe and fun environment
Every Sunday, children birth-5th grade experience fun, creative, age-appropriate Bible in a safe and secure environment. We’d love for your family to join the fun this coming Sunday as kids meet Jesus on their level!
LifeKids is back!
We're so excited to be back with LifeKids every week, and we're taking extra precautions to assure that your children are safe in our environments during this season.
Here are the steps that we're taking to protect your child:
If you or your child have experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days, we ask you to refrain from entering the LifeKids area:
*Muscle or Body Aches
*Shortness of Breath
*Temperature over 100.4
*Loss of taste/smell
Additional Steps LifeKids are making to ensure the safety of our volunteers and children:
*All volunteers and children will have their temperature taken upon arrival
*Hand Sanitizer provided upon arrival to LifeKids as well as within the classrooms
*All volunteers will be wearing a face mask as well as we are requesting all children grades K-5 to also wear a face mask while in LifeKids
*Grades K-5 will be provided sitting mats to help promote social distancing
*Social Distancing guidelines will be encouraged during check in and pick up of children by pick up of one parent to prevent overcrowding in the hallway
*All toys, mats, tables, chairs, doors and classrooms will be sanitized and cleaned thoroughly following our gathering
LifeKids will continue to be a FUN, SAFE and extra CLEAN environment for everyone even given extra precautions!
Your First Time
LifeKids is located to the left as soon as you enter our front door! We're excited your family is here and is going to be hanging out with us today. Your first stop is going to be our Check-In area in our lobby. You'll be directed to this area by a helpful volunteer upon your arrival. We recommend arriving fifteen minutes early so you can get your child checked in.
Getting Checked In
Once you get to our area, we will gather some information from you about your child. Because we value safety, we will ask you for information about your child's known allergies and your cell phone number. We will text you in the event of an emergency. When you come back next week, just give your name or number to the check-in volunteer and it will be a breeze!
Not quite ready to bring your child in LifeKids?
We realize it can be intimidating for anyone to step into a brand new environment- and that's ok! You're more than welcome to bring your child into our Sunday Gathering until your child- or you- are ready to bring your child into LifeKids. And we do believe that once they experience it, they'll be excited to come back the next week!
If, however, you are unsure about bringing your child to LifeKids, it's our goal to ensure your family has an excellent experience during your time with us! To that end, there are three simple ideas that we call "VCR" that will help you and your family enjoy your time at LifeSpring.
“V” is for “Volume”
We love loud music- which may be unsuitable for your child if they are 2 years old or younger. For the health and safety of your child, we recommend you not bring a child under 2 years old into our adult environment. If your child is agreeable to ear plugs, we have those available for you at Guest Services or as you enter our auditorium. If earplugs irritate your child, For moms we have a special room designed just for moms with children under two years old, located in our kids ministry area upstairs. You’ll see and hear the entire experience on HD TV- minus potentially harmful volume levels for your child.
“C” is for “Content”
Our pastors tailor their messages to an audience that is 6th grade and older. Sometimes we will talk about topics that young ears may not be ready to hear…which could lead to questions you’re not ready to answer ( For instance: “Mom, what does ‘sex’ mean?”)! This may be the Sunday that happens- which is the perfect time to have them check out LifeKids! They’ll understand the teaching…and there’ll be no awkward moments on the drive home.
“R” is for “Relationships”
One of the beautiful things about the local church is the relationships we form. One of the ways we develop those relationships is by being courteous and considerate of others. If your child becomes fussy or restless, we want you to know two things. First, we get it. You don’t have to be embarrassed or frustrated because your child is being fussy. We’ve all been there as parents. We’re here for you. Second, we want you to have the best time possible during your time with us. That’s why we created LifeKids! Our volunteers would love to serve you by giving you a break!
The Ride Home
We encourage parents to ask two questions of their children each week: “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn?” It’s our goal that your child has a positive answer to that every week!
