Children's Ministries

Partnering with parents to disciple children…

Welcome to Children’s Ministry at Centre Street Church!

Our heartbeat is to partner with you as parents in the journey of discipling your children and helping them become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

In-Person Children's Ministries

Children's Ministries will be offered at specific campuses (see below for locations and times), but will have limited capacity and reduced classroom sizes to ensure physical distancing requirements.  We will only be able to offer Children's Ministries age 2 and older.  

Thank you for partnering with us during this time as we work together to create spaces that are safe and healthy for our children, families, and leaders.  
 
 

RESERVING YOUR CHILD'S SPOT

Based on current attendance patterns, we are now registering on a first-come, first-served system and you will no longer need a ticket to reserve a spot for your child in Children's Ministries . 

*Adults/parents are still required to register to attend the main worship service to ensure there is space. 

We strongly recommend you arrive early before the service starts so your child has an opportunity to engage in their class.  Here are a few things to help make your experience better:
  • Bring your key-fob (if you have one) so you can use our self-serve check-in machines to register for your child’s class.  
  • Self-serve machines start registering 30 minutes before the service starts. 
  • Children's Ministries opens 15 minutes before the service starts.  
  • Assisted check-in will continue to be available.  

We will continue to monitor this as we go forward and will make adjustments as needed. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we walk through this together.

Yes, all leaders are required to wear masks, unless medically exempt under the municipal bylaw and provincial mask mandate. We have disposable masks available in Children's Ministries if you forget yours. 

  

Yes, there is a maximum number of children allowed in each of our age groups.  This ensures the best learning environment for kids to have fun, be safe, and provide the space needed for activities.  It also ensures there is appropriate room for physical distancing.

  
Yes we are following physical distancing requirements for places of worship as mandated by Alberta Health Services.  We are committed to providing the best learning environment for kids to have fun, be safe, and have space for the different activities.  This means we have maximum room capacities and physical distancing to ensure we don't overcrowd our rooms.  Seating for children is pre-determined and they stay in their assigned seats during their learning experience.
 
We want every child to feel known, loved and cared for by their leader.  As a result, we put children into intentional small groups each week.  You will drop off your child into a room/small group with their leader and the other children in their group.  They will stay in their small group as they go through the different activities, move to the different program elements, and have intentional conversations. 
 
 
  
Due to the limited capacity or not enough volunteers, there will be times when children cannot get into Children's Ministries. We encourage you to take your child into the worship service with you, but respectfully ask that if they become loud/disruptive in the worship service that you move to the foyer area. There are limited designated family friendly areas at some campuses to watch the service with your child outside of the worship centre.  
 
We are working to build our volunteer teams which will increase our ability to accommodate more children at each worship service. We recommend that you arrive early to try and get a spot for your child.  
 
Please prayerfully consider joining us as we partner with parents in discipling this next generation. Check out serving opportunities HERE.
 
  
We are committed to creating safe environments for you and your family as we gather to worship.  All classrooms, frequently touched surfaces, toys, and shared materials are sanitized between worship services.  We have enhanced our hand washing and room cleanliness protocols to ensure your health and safety continue to be a priority.  
 
Children's Ministries leaders will be giving children, parents, and leaders hand sanitizer as they enter ministry areas.  
 
We will also continue to monitor community COVID-19 rates and best practices for safe gatherings under the direction of AHS.
 
  
If your child becomes ill/sick during Children's Ministries, they will be moved to a designated isolation area at your campus.  Your 3-digit security number for your family will display on the worship centre screens.  Please go to the Children's Ministries entrance and the guest services team will direct you to your child.
 
The proper health and safety protocols will be followed to ensure limited exposure and proper follow up care.

 

  

Families and leaders in individual classes will be notified if we are informed about a positive COVID case in a specific class.  This is similar to our current health policies where we notify families/leaders for other situations, including:  lice, hand foot mouth disease, chicken pox etc.

  

We will not be having snacks in Children's Ministries during this time. This will continue to be monitored and may change as we move forward.
