Weekly Video Resources for this month

While we are sad to be physically apart this week, we are so grateful for our curriculum provider, Orange, who specifically designed a way for us to be able to share awesome Bible content with you and your family!  Now, your kids have something to stream, too!

Welcome! 

Leading children to grow in their faith, hope and love for Jesus Christ.

ProvKids’ focus is on each child’s heart transformation and each Sunday morning we provide Biblical community opportunities for the children with their fellow classmates, their families, our church and our/their community.  We believe that everything we do in ProvKids should be Biblically based and fun, and we strive to make our kids and families feel safe and welcome. If you are interested in getting your children involved, please come check it out! 

Sundays at 9am & 11am

All kids 6 months through 1st grade are invited to check-in and then head straight to their classes. 2nd-5th graders should check-in and then worship with their parents until they are dismissed to their classes. (With the exception of 2nd Sundays where all ProvKids begin in their classes a the start of service.)

 Visiting?

Our friendly registration team members are happy to assist you. As soon as you arrive, kindly bring your children into our ProvKids registration area where they can get registered and properly checked in. If you have any questions before arrival, please do not hesitate to contact Anna Morris at

ProvKids COVID Precautions:

In light of COVID-19 we will be putting the following into place at this time in addition to our existing health and wellness policies. (see below for a link to our full handbook?)  As we begin on August 30, 2020 we will have ProvKids available at both the 9am and 11am services for the Nursery (6mo.-18mo. olds) and K-5th graders. Preschoolers are welcome to attend service with their families at this time. (Activity bags will be available to keep preschoolers occupied during the service, and the cafe will also be available for streaming if you need a space to be with your preschooler.)

Pre-registration

Currently, to ensure proper classroom ratios, ProvKids will be requiring all attendees to pre-register for Sunday each week by noon on Saturday.

Health Check

All Staff and Volunteers will be temperature checked each morning. Before checking in children, health check questions will be asked of each family. If anyone in the household is experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, we will kindly ask that family to enjoy online service that day.

  • A temperature of 100.4 or greater, now or in the last 48 hours
  • Cough/Runny Nose (other than general allergies)
  • Has anyone in the household been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 14 days
  • Do you have a mask for service today or do you need one?

Check-in/Check-out

There will be manned check-in stations each week, with a check-in line marked for social distancing. Designated Check-In Volunteers will check in all families, providing a touch-free experience. Please send as few family members as possible with 1 adult to check-in.

6mo. -18 mo. children can be dropped off at the beginning of service in Rm. 201. Elementary children will begin upstairs in worship with their parents/guardians until dismissed at the start of the sermon (rooms will be assigned on your child’s tag).

Families will line up in a socially distant manner at the registration point for check out. Upon reaching the front of the line, a Check-Out Volunteer will retrieve the family’s child(ren) and check security tag(s). Please see someone at registration if you have misplaced your tags before attempting to retrieve your child.

Masks

Masks are expected for all ProvKids Volunteers and expected for all parents and Elementary children. Kid masks will be provided if needed.

Social Distancing

ProvKids is limiting classroom capacity to encourage social distancing as much as possible. Elementary students will be placed into small groups in a large, open room to avoid unnecessary exposure.

Sanitization, Hygiene, and Cleaning

  • All craft/coloring materials will be packaged for individual use.
  • Sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building and we will remind children to use them when necessary.
  • All touchpoints and restrooms will be wiped down and sanitized before, between, and after services.
  • No outside food or drinks should be brought in at this time.

Parent Alert System

If ProvKids would need to retrieve a parent during service, your family’s unique security code (found on child pickup tag) would be displayed on the projector screen. Please report to the kids downstairs registration area if this number applies to you.

Curriculum

Here in our NextGen Ministry (Babies through High School) at Providence Church we “Think Orange,” because the church and the family are stronger together.

God Time Cards

Elementary students: Be sure to get your student take-home devotional pages before leaving church each week (reach out to us if you were not able to attend and would like a copy of one). It's simple, complete the 4-day devotional page on your own or with the help of a parent/guardian and bring it back completed for a special prize. Happy reading!
