It Starts at Home.
The Church + Home = Greater Impact

We believe that two combined influences make a greater impact than just two individual influences. Our goal is to provide great resources for our parents with encouragement to shape their kids' faith formation. You aren't alone - We are here for you!

Safety Measures 

COVID-19 Precautions 

  • Mask Policy - Current CDC Guidelines suggest that all children 3 and above wear a mask. Christ United’s policy is that masks will be required for children K-5 and above. However, we strongly suggest following the CDC’s recommendation for 3 and 4-year-olds.
  • We will not be taking temperatures on site so please keep your child at home if they have a temperature.
  • All volunteers and staff on the kids’ wing will wear a mask at all times.

General Safety Measures 
At Christ United, the security and safety of our kids is our highest priority. 

  • First Time Visitors – Please complete a visitor card and fill out a security sticker. Look for someone in a gray Kids Ministry apron to help get you started.
  • Children are checked in by a parent/guardian on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights by a sticker system. One sticker is placed on the child, and the parent retains the pickup receipt sticker. The receipt sticker must be presented before a child will be released to the parent/guardian.
  • All leaders complete an application process which includes a background check, application, and references. 
  • A security guard is present in the children’s wing on Sunday mornings and on campus on Wednesday nights. Once Wednesday night is in session, outside doors remain locked until pick up.
