Frequently Asked Questions during COVID

  • Q:  What do you offer for kids? A: At this time, we have a Kids Nursery (6 weeks – K3) available for each worship service. Kids Church (K4 &K5) is available during the 9:00 and 11:00 am services and Kids Sunday School (K4 - 4th) is available during the 10:10 - 10:45 am Sunday School hour.

  • Q: Do you require registration? A: We are no longer requiring registration. All children attending Kids Nursery (6 weeks – K3),  Kids Church (K4 & K5), and Kids Sunday School (K4 - 4th) will need to scan their key tag at the self check-on desk or come to the visitors check-in to receive a key tag.

  • Q: Why are we opening all Kids programs on Sunday mornings? A: We want to offer what we can, in a safe way, to provide families opportunities to worship in person.

  • Q: What should I expect when I arrive at check-in? A: There will be two computers set up at the self check-in desk for you to use to check your children in on Sunday. You will need a key tag to check your children in. If you do not have a key tag, come to the visitor's desk to check-in and a key tag will be provided for you. We will no longer be checking temperatures or asking the COVID questions.

  • Q: How many people can check-in? A: To help limit the number of people in the hallways, we request that only one parent/grandparent/guardian bring children to check-in.  It would be nice if this is the same person that picks up the child as well.  If a family needs the assistance of multiple adults, that is fine.  

  • Q: How do I pick up my child?  A:  For pick up, one parent may enter the gray wing and proceed to the child’s classroom, collect their belongings, and exit through the glass doors.  The pick-up person must be 16 years old or older and have the parent pick-up tag you received at check-in.

  • Q: Do parents and kids need to wear a mask? A: Masks are not required to be worn by parents or kids at this time. Masks are optional on campus.

  • Q: Will the workers/volunteers be wearing a mask? A: Workers and volunteers are not required to wear a mask. Masks are optional on campus. 

  • Q: How are we keeping the classrooms cleaned?  A: We will run air purifiers in each classroom to circulate clean air and thoroughly disinfect, clean, and wipe down all tables, toys, and surfaces during and in between services. 

  • Q: Will snacks be provided? A: A light snack will be provided. We will use hand sanitizer before and after snacks. If you bring a sippy cup for your child, please place it in the child’s bag. The worker will take it out when or if the child needs water. 

  • Q: How are we maintaining social distancing? A: During dropoff/pickup, we are limiting the number of people inside the MR Kids wing. We ask that you help us out by not congregating in the nursery hallway, common space, or outside the doors.

Check-in Procedure

  • At MRPC we use an electronic check-in system called Fellowship One. F1 provides safety and security to our program for YOUR children!

    • We highly value security. Therefore, ALL children in the Kid's Ministry will need to check-in.

    • Fellowship One nametags have a place for important allergy and/or medical information. Information is printed in a small black line. The presence of the line alerts caregivers to important information. If your child has allergies or medical conditions that caregivers/teachers need to be aware of, please email Kelley Collins (kcollins@mitchellroad.org) as soon as possible, so this information can be added.

    • Teachers are NOT permitted to dismiss a child without a parent receipt sticker with an alphanumeric code matching that of the child’s. If you lose your receipt sticker, please see the Kid's Ministry staff.
