This is a fun and inviting atmosphere where the little ones can play with toys, puzzles, and books with other children their age, after enjoying a time of worship with the older children.
A structured class where the children hear stories from the Bible; learn about who God is and what He has done; and do crafts, games, activities, and songs.
An interactive group, where fun, Bible stories, crafts, and games are woven together as part of learning Biblical truths and figuring out how to apply them to young lives.
GROWING IN GOD
Here at Free Life Church, kids are Very Important Little People and we have created a space and an experience specifically for children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me” and so we invite children to encounter God by being intentional about engaging in worship in an interactive way, teaching the Word and learning about the Kingdom, and applying that to grow in character, all in a fun way.
Providing a safe environment for your child is our top priority. All Kids volunteers are required to pass a background check and all people are screened at the drop-off/pick-up point. Every child is required to be registered for each event they attend with a security sticker system for check-in and pick-up, with a mobile phone number for contacting parents.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Check-In for children starts at 9:45AM, 15 minutes before the main service begins. Check-in ends at 10:15AM. If you are a first time visitor, one of the team will help you register your children. Once in the system, you will be able to check them in yourself. Stickers are printed for each child to wear showing your mobile number should we need to contact you during the service, and you will keep a matching number sticker with which to collect them. This is for the safety and security of the children.
All the children begin together in the Children’s Area for welcome, worship, and snack*, before separating and going to their own classrooms for age-appropriate lessons and activities.
*Snacks include a juice for Sprouts and Saplings, and we ask parents of Seedlings to provide a bottle or closed cup with a drink for their child. All food items are dairy, egg, and nut free. Parents of Seedlings can check with the team on duty if their child can have the snack (usually Welch’s Fruit Snack, Roll-Ups, or apple sauce), or provide their own (allergy free).
We would be glad to answer any further questions you have about Free Life Kids.
We do have a Mother’s Quiet Room/Nursing room for mom’s and their babies who are not old enough for Seedlings. This room is the first on the right in the kids’ area. We have both audio and visual of the service streamed into this room so you don’t feel like you’re missing out if you and your little one need to step out of the sanctuary. Changing tables are located in the Family Bathroom near the Kids area as well as the Ladies bathroom.
