We are so excited to be opening our Kingdom Kid’s Children’s Ministry this Sunday, September 13. 2020.  At this time all classes will be open for ages 12 months and older on both Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.  Our staff has been working diligently to create a safe and secure environment for you.

  1. If you or your children are experiencing any symptoms or have been in close contact to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please stay home and enjoy our services online.
  2. To make the registration process run smooth, we ask that you check in your child/children before arriving to church using the Church Center app.

Positive Case and Exposure Protocols

Please Note: We will be doing everything we can to practice limited contact per the guidelines of the CDC.

We love you. We trust you. Our new guidelines and procedures are in place so you and your family can trust that we are doing everything we can to ensure your church experience is as safe as possible. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Parents, please let your students know in advance what to expect. Remind them that this time of physical distancing is temporary but important as we take care of each other as a church family. We appreciate your help in making this transition as smooth as possible.
