Meadows Kids Drop Off Information
This Sunday, September 5th, we transition to three rooms for Meadows Kids and a change in routine for drop off.
Littles may be dropped off and checked in the nursery before the service starts, but "Middles" and "Bigs" will join in the singing time in the sanctuary. Before the sermon, children and parents will be invited to come up front to be prayed for before being dismissed to their classes. Parents will take the children to their rooms to be checked in. You can exit the sanctuary out the side doors after the prayer. Head down the ramp and follow our BLUE wall to the children's hall. Pastor Andrew and others leading the service are aware and will take care that parents do not miss out on anything important at the beginning of the sermon.
If you have any questions, feel free to email or call me (Eryn Bee 630-220-6534; email@example.com).
