GraceKids is Reopening July 5!
Welcome back GraceKids families! 👋
That's right– we are welcoming you back to church! We're so happy to announce that GraceKids and Crew 456 will resume Sundays beginning July 5 at our 9:30 and 11:15 AM services.
We miss you! It seems like forever since we’ve been at church together. We're excited for you to come and see some new things, and we want to remind you of certain things we wouldn’t dream of changing.
Care and Safety
GraceKids' number one mission is keeping kids safe no matter the circumstances and we want you to know we will always implement best practices to keep your kids safe! During Sunday Services kids will still be able to expect the same things: a fun and engaging Bible lesson, songs, games that make them giggle, and lots of leaders that love them!
New Upon Arrival at Church
When you enter the building:
We ask that you let one of the serve team members open doors for you
You will see hand sanitizer stations inside
We'll ask children to wash their hands immediately upon arrival in their classroom
Touch-free check-in with a team member to assist you
Team members will be here 15 minutes before church starts to help you check-in
We're working to have the same leaders and students together in one space all weekend to limit the number of interactions your child is having.
Parents— we need your help with this! Please, please, PLEASE drop your child off in their designated classroom. We will have extra signage to make sure you know where you should take your child!
You might be wondering how exactly we're going to be cleaning our rooms– to be honest we wondered that as well. We decided the best thing to do is to tap into Building Blocks (our Child Care Center that runs throughout the week) for their help! They have shared with us their cleaning procedures used daily to keep their kids and families safe. We are also thankful for our maintenance teams who are cleaning daily from top to bottom to provide us with a sanitized and extra clean facility.
During church hours, our teams will:
Limit the amount of toys in the classrooms by turning some toy centers to face away from children
Rotate centers in between services so that each group will have a new set of clean toys
Clean and disinfect toys after each service
Clean and disinfect tables and flat surfaces after each service
WE MISS YOU AND YOUR KIDS!
We're sure they're bigger, smarter, and as special as ever and we can’t wait to be back in the classrooms. We love playing a part in teaching them about God and His love for us. Thank you! We are more excited than ever to partner with you in the spiritual life of your family!
Please stay connected to our GraceKids online ministry by watching for new videos on our YouTube channel as well as checking out our website where we will post resources for your family. We also just launched a GraceKids Facebook page to make it easy to stay up-to-date on all of the upcoming fun as we reopen– be sure to follow us!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the church office at (724) 962-5000. One of our team members will be in contact with you to make this process the best it can be.
Thank you and SEE YOU SOON!
