Children


KK2

 

 

At All Saints children experience church in a way that is designed specifically for them. Our staff and teachers engage them in God’s word and the life of the church through a variety of opportunities on Sunday and throughout the week.

 

 

 

 

 

WHERE DO I GO?

  • St. Gabriel’s 9:15 AM Sunday School & 10:30 AM service: After entering the main entrance the children’s hall is located to the far right.
  • Park Hills 5:00 PM service: Located at the end of the Narthex to the right.

WHAT HAPPENS?

Children ages 0-4:  Classes are available throughout Sunday School and worship.

Children PK-2nd grade begin the service with their families. They are dismissed during the Hymn of Response following the Confession of Sin for Small Saints (an age-appropriate Bible lesson and activity), and return at the Passing of the Peace.

 

  1. Be greeted by someone at the Children’s visitor station
  2. Children are placed in a specific class according to their age or the developmental stage.
  3. Allergies will be noted, and children will receive a name tag
  4. Parents will receive a Claim Check for each child; this tag is a safety measure that ensures only parents or authorized persons can retrieve them.
  5. If a child has difficulty being separated and is inconsolable for more than 5-10 minutes, parents will receive a text message.
  6. After the sermon (indicated in the liturgy) parents can choose to pick up their child/children to rejoin them for blessing and communion, or children can stay in nursery until the conclusion of the service.

WHAT WILL THEY DO?

  • Sunday School: A lesson, play time, singing
  • Children’s Church : Music Time, A bible lesson, Snacks: Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Cheerios, and water are offered
  • Small Saints: During the adult sermon, is a sermon contextualized for children ages Pre-K-2nd grade, in the children’s hall. Children can attend this and either return to adult service or to children’s church.

WHO TAKES CARE OF MY CHILD?

  • Sunday School teachers are members of the church and are consistent through the semester. View here.
  • Children’s Church teachers are members. They are assisted by paid nannies who do diaper changes and assist with care.
  • For very young children All Saints hires a professional company called Mom’s Best Friend, and professional nannies who undergo background checks.
