    Children’s Ministries Covid Safety Procedures

    Children may not participate if they, or anyone they have been in contact with, have tested positive with Covid in the last 7 days.  They may also not attend if they are currently showing any Covid symptoms according to the CDC.  Our biggest line of defense comes in not having children with symptoms participating.  We are trusting parents to be extra diligent about this during this time period.  


    • Upon entering the buildings on campus everyone is being asked to wear a mask until they are in their designate locations and distanced.
    • Children are not mandated to wear masks in the classrooms, but are definitely allowed to.   If kids are closer than an arm’s length distance, they may be asked to mask up briefly.
    • However, in the nursery and toddler room, masks will not be placed on children by workers.
    • Parents may mask their children if they choose.
    • Adult helpers will be asked to wear face coverings or shields when not distanced.
    • Kids will be encouraged to maintain an arm’s length distance between people as much as possible. Please note this may be difficult to adhere to in the nursery and toddler room during free play times.
    • Floor circle dots will be used to help with distancing where appropriate.
    • Individual crayon boxes will be provided, labeled, and stay at church so children have their own personal supplies.
    • Children will be asked to sanitize their hands prior to using community items.
    • Hand sanitizing between transition times will be encouraged.
    • Windows will be opened for fresh air circulation.
    • Updates to these procedures may be made by the elders and Children’s Ministry Director at any time and will be communicated to those involved.

    For questions or clarification please call Brad Mondeel at 907-350-8751.
