Kidz (K-5th)

At Creekside, we want to see God’s potential for your children maximized. Our weekly ministries for children focus on reaching them at their level and engaging them with fun and interactive experiences. We go the extra mile to provide ministries that creatively teach Biblical truths and guide kids in every step of their spiritual journey.

Sunday School

9:30am:
Kidz Sunday School is currently not meeting. We look forward to re-opening at a later time.

Sunday Kidz Church

11am:
Children K through 5th grade have their own exciting hour of Worship in room 140. Prayer, drama, games and songs are used to instill a desire to praise God through worship.

Wednesday Evening Connect

On Wednesday evenings (during the school year), we provide activities for children of all ages, including games outdoors or in the gym, praise singing and Bible Study. Please check out the events to see dates of upcoming activities.

Trailblazers

Trailblazers is a Ministry for 4th and 5th grade boys and girls to serve and have fun together. Trailblazers is a pre-youth group whose goal is to help our 4th and 5th graders grow in their Christian relationships in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We want them to know that it is cool to be a Christian. It is a great opportunity for our pre-teens to form lasting friendships that will help them transition into the Student Ministry. This is a vital ministry for our kids as they are preparing for middle school and beyond.

Wednesday Evening Connect at 7:00 during the school calendar year.

Sunday School - 9:30am
Our children will experience God's story in fresh fun meaningful ways, understand God's word by doing surprising, fun activities and discover the adventure of integrating God's truth to everyday life.

Check-In and Security

We want you to feel confident that your children are being well cared for while engaging in activities that help them learn about God's great love for each and every one of them! 

LEARN MORE

Our loving staff members and volunteers will be ready to receive children 15 minutes prior to the start of worship or classes.

Kiosks are located in the preschool and discipleship wings to check in your children (6 weeks-5th grade) and receive a security badge. Please, always inform the check-in assistant of any special instructions or allergies your child may have. Please advise the check-in desk attendant if any allergy or contact information on your child’s name tag needs to be updated.

Each child must be wearing their name badge prior to being released into our care. Each name badge has a unique ID# matching that on the parent’s security tag. At pick-up, parents must present their security tag to the child’s classroom teacher. Children will only be released to the parent or designated caregiver with the matching security tag.

Parents must remain on the Creekside campus when using childcare. When it’s time to go home, please remember the following:

- All parents/guardians must present their matching security sticker to the child’s teacher.
- Allow the nursery staff/teacher to bring your child and any belongings to you at the door.
- Please be prompt in picking up your child, as a delay can result in distress for your child.

Contacting You if Needed
We want to make sure both children and parents feel safe and comfortable when children are in our care. If you are needed, we will contact you in one of two ways: by text or by displaying your child’s security number on the screen in worship. Please remember to have your cell phone on you so that you will feel it vibrate in the event your child needs you.

Children may cry when being left by parents. We understand and anticipate this, especially when a child moves to a new classroom or is visiting our church. In most cases, crying stops shortly after drop off. In the event that a child continues to cry, we will notify the parent (per parent instructions, so please let us know how long you would like us to wait before notifying you).

Wellness Policy and Protocol

As you can imagine, we will need to operate much differently than prior to the pandemic. We want to ensure that our families understand what measures have been put in place in order for you to be comfortable with your child attending Nursery or Kidz Church.

DETAILS

Our first responsibility is to assure that your children have a clean, sanitized and safe environment.

- Nursery will be held in rooms that are not in use by CCA on Mondays. Nursery rooms will be sanitized and toys will be changed out in between services. We will make hand sanitizing stations available for Sunday morning use.

- Wellness Check-in stations will be located in the Nursery and Discipleship Wing hallways. Children will have their temperature checked to ensure it is less than 100.4. If a child isn’t feeling well, be safe and stay home!

- The seating in Kidz Church has been arranged to also maintain social distancing of 6 feet in all directions. This has reduced the seating capacity to about 30 spots. We will be sitting on the floor, so be sure to dress accordingly. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks or face shields. Children over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear masks.

- Let us see your HUGE smile! Give a wave, elbow bump, air hugs or air high fives! Let’s keep it safe and maintain social distancing!

- Eat before church! We love snacks, but we won’t be having any on Sunday just yet.

- Get ready for FUN! We can’t wait to see our Creekside families!

- Help us plan! Please RSVP for Sunday Nursery and/or Kidz Church on Creekside’s weekly RSVP email, Facebook Page, or website. Check-in tags will be pre-printed and waiting for you.
