SMALL SAINTS

PreK – 2nd graders may attend Small Saints during the sermon. The bulletin will indicate when the children are dismissed and when they will return to worship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHERE DO I GO?

  • St. Gabriel’s 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 main hallway to the right.

WHAT HAPPENS?

Children ages birth-4 years old (not in PreK):  Classes are available throughout the entire worship service.

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 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 bulletin) 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 (when in session): A lesson, play time, singing.
    • 2 & 3 year old classes use The Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum adapted for younger children.
    • PreK-5th Grade classes use the PCA’s “Show Me Jesus” curriculum from Great Commission Publications.
  • Children’s Church : Music Time, A bible lesson, Snacks: (Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Cheerios, and water) are provided
    • Runners & Older 1′s classes read a Bible Story with their teacher.
    • 2 & 3 year old classes use the PCA’s “Show Me Jesus” curriculum from Great Commission Publications
  • Small Saints: Children in PreK-2nd Grade are dismissed from worship during the sermon for music, a brief lesson, and activity/craft. The bulletin will indicate when they are dismissed and when they will return to worship.

WHO TAKES CARE OF MY CHILD?

  • Children’s Church Teachers: Members or regular attenders who have completed (or are scheduled to complete) teacher training and have undergone a routine background check. They are assisted by paid nannies who change diapers and assist with care.
  • Paid Caregivers: For very young children All Saints hires caregivers from a professional company called Mom’s Best Friend. These women have all undergone routine background checks and many have worked for All Saints for a number of years.
  • Youth Volunteers: Serving in the children’s ministry is a great opportunity for older children and youth to begin serving in the church on Sundays. Youth volunteers must be in 3rd Grade or above and have completed an application. All volunteers under 18 are paired with an adult volunteer in the classroom.
