Our classrooms will be available to welcome your child 20 minutes prior to the beginning of service. Let us assure you that your child will be in a safe and nurturing environment. Our team is trained to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of your child.
WHAT A TYPICAL SERVICE AT ROCK POINT KIDS LOOKS LIKE
Each child is greeted by their classroom leader. Children participate with their small group in an activity meant to introduce the day’s Bible story.
Large Group Environment
Shortly after arriving, the children transition to their large group environment where they hear the Bible story and engage in expressive worship. Kids are invited to sing and dance and tell God how much they love Him.
Small Group Environment
After participating in worship, the children transition back to their classroom where their leaders help them understand the Bible story. The service is concluded with a snack and group activity or craft.
Allergy Awareness | Snack Policy
To ensure that our classrooms are safe and to care for children with allergies or special dietary needs, we provide a gluten-free, dairy free, nut free snack. No outside food is allowed.
If We Need to Contact You During Service
If our ministry workers need to contact you during the worship service, your child’s assigned number will appear on the main screen.
BATHROOM AND DIAPERING POLICY
Only adult females with a cleared background check may assist the children with their bathroom needs. Kid friendly bathrooms are available inside the Rock Point Kids area and are strictly for their use.
Our team will do everything possible to ease your child’s fears. However, if a child cries for 15 minutes without showing signs of becoming more comfortable, we will page you. We want this to be a pleasurable experience for your child and the other children in our classrooms.
Consider Supporting Our Ministry
Provide us your input
We invite you to share your constructive suggestions for enhancing this ministry.
Encourage our volunteer team
Please keep in mind that our classrooms are staffed with volunteers who minister to the children each week. Please thank them for their time.
Join our volunteer team
We want to reach all children for Jesus, but we need to maintain the proper volunteer/child ratio in each of our classrooms. We have many volunteer opportunities that utilize a variety of skills, including leading a class, classroom assistant, on-stage presenter, worship leader, and classroom prep.
Partnering with Parents
Our Kids ministry serves as an entry point for you to embark on a partnership with the church with the aim of seeing your child grow in vibrant faith in the years to come. We want to equip you with the tools you need to be the primary faith influencer in your family. As a parent, you will ultimately have a far greater influence on your children than any church leader and so our primary role is to empower and encourage you.
Understanding Parent | Child Dedication
As believers, we are called to recognize that children belong first and foremost to God. God, in his goodness, gives children as gifts to parents. As parents, we have the awesome responsibility and wonderful privilege of caring for and enjoying the gift. This is noted in Psalm 127:3 where it states that, “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”
Because children belong to God and are given by grace as gifts to parents, it is only proper and appropriate that children be dedicated back to God.
The Parent | Child Dedication Ceremony is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you an opportunity to express publicly your desire raise your child to love God and to Know Jesus Personally.
During the ceremony, you’ll be presenting your child before God and ask for His blessing, wisdom and grace in carrying out this incredible responsibility.
