Please read below to see how we are making children’s ministry available to your family in two different formats so you can decide which is best for your family during this time.


Online Preschool & Elementary Classes:

  1. At this time, nothing will change for our families who wish to continue participating in our online Bible Study classes.
  2. Online Bible Study will continue to meet in the late afternoons via our “Zoom Rooms” through Labor Day weekend. On September 13, our online Bible Study classes will move to 10:05 a.m. (This is the day our AWANA ministry resumes and will take that late afternoon timeslot).
  3. Text Rachel Jones at 817-726-0772 for Zoom information if you do not already have it.

In-Person PRESCHOOL Classes:

  1. Families will stop first at our security check-in computer kiosks; however, a volunteer will operate the computer for you in order to limit the number of people touching the computers.
  2. Preschoolers and their teachers will attend class in disinfected rooms and will not switch rooms during their class time, to limit cross-exposures.
  3. Preschoolers do not need to wear masks.
  4. All children will wash their hands upon entering their classroom and prior to dismissal.
  5. Your child’s teacher might be different than who they would normally have on Sunday morning. This is because many of our teachers are still leading our online classes and some are not able to return just yet due to being at-risk during the current pandemic. Our teachers miss their students very much and frequently tell me how much they look forward to being able to come back and see everyone again!

In-Person ELEMENTARY Classes:

  1. Families will stop first at our security check-in computer kiosks; however, a volunteer will operate the computer for you in order to limit the number of people touching the computers.
  2. Elementary children will have class in a disinfected room outfitted for socially-distanced learning activities where they will have their own set of supplies to use for the morning.
  3. At this time, we must ask all elementary-age children to wear a mask when entering and exiting their classrooms. We strongly suggest children wear their mask during the class; however, we understand some of our children struggle with sensory or other issues that may make this extremely difficult. For this reason, children will not be required to wear masks when they get to their learning spot for the morning.
  4. All children will wash their hands upon entering their classroom and prior to dismissal.
  5. Your child’s teacher might be different than who they would normally have on Sunday morning. This is because many of our teachers are still leading our online classes and some are not able to return just yet due to being at-risk during the current pandemic. Our teachers miss their students very much and frequently tell me how much they look forward to being able to come back and see everyone again!
