After a lot of prayer, discussion, and planning, the Leadership Team has approved a plan for us to move forward with Grace Kids on-site twice per month for the fall. For the next few months, we'll offer our Preschool (for ages 3-5) and Elementary (for Kindergarten and up) classes twice per month beginning August 23. For now, we will not be staffing our nursery, but will leave it open for up to two parents with one child each.
If you are the parent of a child in 4th grade and up, it may be helpful to know we'll have a number of new Kindergarteners joining the elementary class, so the curriculum will be tailored to an early elementary level. Your older kids are welcome to choose to remain with you in the main service or to come to the elementary class.
Parents, we're asking you to pre-register your kids as we'll try to maintain a lower-than-normal capacity for our classrooms. For the October 11 service, we're asking you to pre-register your kids by
Thursday, October 22. You can pre-register here.
You can find some specifics regarding safety and other updated procedures for this season of Grace Kids here.
This has been such a strange season, and I know each of you are experiencing this differently, and are committed to different levels of social distancing for a myriad of reasons. We will continue to provide weekly in-service activities for parents who choose to keep kids with them in service, and expanded in-service activities (including a children's segment) on Sundays kids classes aren't offered.
At this time, we are scheduled to offer on-site kids ministry on the following dates (with the understanding that we'll remain aware of any community health changes and adjust our schedule accordingly):
