CLARITY LOVES KIDS AND FAMILIES
In short, we love having families at our church – noisy, maybe smelly kids included. Parenting can be overwhelming; the idea of bringing kids to church can raise cold sweat on a parent’s brow. This page is to reassure you that we want you and your kids – your raucous, misbehaving kids – here at our Clarity Gatherings.
THE MISSION OF CLARITY KIDS IS:
- To empower our parents to disciple their children at home during the week
- To teach the Bible as God’s Word
- To provide the best care possible for our children
- To be hospitable to our children and parents
- To provide a safe and secure environment for our children to learn and grow on Sundays
VISITING CLARITY KIDS ON SUNDAY MORNING
Clarity Kids provides opportunities for children from birth through 5th-grade during the morning services. You’re welcome to use those services if you like; or if you prefer to have your kids in worship with you, plenty of our families do that too!
We have a clearly identified area where parents can check in their kids before each service begins.
Parents will receive a security tag and a nametag with their child’s name (ideally placed on the child’s back).
This tag is required to check your kids out of Clarity Kids; please keep your portion with you.
FOR YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY AND YOUR PEACE OF MIND WE...
- Do background checks on all volunteers.
- Have allergy alert stickers available at check-in.
- Ask that when you check-in your child for the first time, you provide emergency contact info and other important info that will help our volunteers know your child better.
- Provide a security tag for your child, and ask for the parent’s portion of the security tag before releasing any child for check-out.
- Require strict adherence to the Clarity Kids bathroom procedures, which state “no child will be left alone with an adult anywhere.”
- Require anyone entering the children’s ministry to show their security tag to a security volunteer.
- Have a female-only diaper changing policy.
CHILD DEDICATION WITH CLARITY
We don't baptize infants at our Gathering; but we do see child dedication as a way to support our families. Click here to find out more about child dedication with Clarity.
