KIDS MINISTRY AT ANTHEM CHURCH
In Anthem Kids, our mission is to help kids find their way back to God, connect with others, and contribute to changing the world. We believe that kids have the capacity to walk intimately with God, and we love to see them learn about Him and connect with Him through Bible stories, songs, and more.
Ministry update: Sep 2021
We have loved this last season of meeting together on Sundays under the tent and via livestream as families. There has been a beauty to the simplicity and we have loved seeing families worship together.
For the remaining months of 2021, we will host an Anthem Kids Breakout each week during our Sunday morning gatherings. This is have kids walking - 5th graders (or 12 years old).
We will be having our breakout in a combination of indoor classrooms and our outdoor playground. At this time we have moved to a mask optional policy for both children and adults. We encourage parents to feel free to decide whether or not to have their kids wear a mask.
While we know that covid is still around, we are so grateful that things are beginning to lighten up. We are keeping a close eye on cases and exposure levels in our area and will adjust as needed. We want to create a warm, welcoming and safe environment for anyone to join.
All provides snacks will be handed out by volunteers wearing gloves and children will be given sanitizer for their hands.
To make sure that we keep a safe and fun environment for all kids and volunteers at the Kids Breakout, we ask that you keep your child at home if they:
- have had a fever in the past 24 hrs
- have thrown up in the past 24 hrs
- have a productive cough
- have any other contagious illness
Check-in will be located at U building (the building in the parking lot).
To minimize the amount of time that will be taken out of our gathering, we’re asking that each kid get checked in before the gathering begins at 9:30AM. The volunteers who are checking everyone in at our computers will make sure your info is up to date, print out a sticker for you to put on your kids.
If you're checking your kids in for the first time, please fill out this quick form before arriving on Sunday morning, which will make your Sunday morning check-in process a breeze.
What to expect
When "family time" begins, parents, you can walk your kids back to the U building; please make sure that your kid(s) have their stickers on before leaving. They will head into a time of worship, teaching, community and play. The kids time will be about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Parents, please come back to the U courtyard right after the gathering to check-out your kids. As soon as the kids are with their family, it’s important that the sticker on their back is removed. We don’t want there to be any confusion about who’s responsible for each child, so if a sticker is on a kid, they’re still “checked in” to the Kids Breakout.
