At DFUMC our kids (Kindergarten through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
When you entrust your child to the DFUMC Kids’ Ministry, we want you to know that safety is at the forefront of our minds. With this in mind, we utilize a secure electronic check-in system, which gives the parent/guardian a matching sticker that must be used when picking up his/her child. We also ask all parents to fill out a registration form, which includes emergency contact information and any known allergies.
All staff and volunteers have passed a criminal background screening and have completed Safe Sanctuaries training. Finally, we have a volunteer security team onsite Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. We strive to keep your child’s learning environment and our greater congregation a safe place to experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within a faith community.
How check-in works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at the station in the Children's area. You and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you return to the appropriate area immediately.
