What is Available for Nursing Moms?

Nursing moms and babies are welcome in our Nursery specifically designed with you in mind.

How Can I Stay In The Loop?

If you’d like to learn more about the curriculum and what the Children’s Ministry staff are up to, be sure to stop by your child’s room on Sunday. Each week we pass out a Parent Cue Card that has information about what’s being taught and fun family ideas to further the teaching at home. We also developed a mini-magazine called ParentLink, this is published twice a year.

Relationships

We desire for each child to experience a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We also value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their small group leader and other children within the group. Children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow!

Age Appropriateness

We are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a way they understand. Our environments and lesson materials are created based on the physical, mental and emotional needs of each child.

Safety

We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number and every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check. We use Simple Sign-In to quickly and securely sign children in and out.

Creative Bible Teaching

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

Fun!

Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus.

First Time at TRCKids?

Look for the brick building with the sign, “The Building for Kids”. You and your family will be greeted and checked into our database system. Once your family is checked in, one of our volunteers will be happy to show you the age appropriate room we have created for your child.

We will ask for the following personal information: family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, family address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.

You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion of your matching identification tags which bears a code that is matched to your portion during checkout at the end of the service. During checkout, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

On your way home, be sure to ask your child: “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?”

A Special Note

If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, the child’s identification code would appear on the screens in the auditorium. We would ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member who will direct you to your child’s room.

What Should I Expect When I Return to TRCKids?

As you enter TRCKids, your first stop will be at Sign-In where a friendly volunteer will check your child in for the service you are attending. Our start stations open 20 minutes prior to the start of each service.

You will receive a set of stickers with a family identification number for you and for your child. Your child will wear the sticker with his or her name. Please hold on to your portion of the sticker until checkout at the end of the service. You will need it to check your child out of TRCKids. No child is released unless the matching identification sticker is presented.

If for some reason you were to lose your identification sticker, please go directly to our TRCKids Check-In.

Please be sure to ask any of our amazing volunteers or staff if you have questions about our values, policies or procedures. Thanks for checking out TRCKids!
