At RISE Church, children are a priority. We consider it an honor to encourage and equip parents to invest in the next generation (Proverbs 22:6). Our Children's Ministries are a safe and fun environment for your kids to grow in their relationship with God and others. At RISE, we believe you don't have to wait to be great. You can be a great kid now!
We are developing tomorrow's leaders by sowing biblical truths into their hearts.
Rise Kids Check-in
As you & your child arrive at our parent check in kiosk, you will be greeted by a member of our Rise Kids team. Upon checking in, you will receive a name tag for your child, an extra name tag for the classroom roster, an asset tag for your diaper bag (for nursery aged children), and a corresponding security tag for yourself.
**Please alert parent check-in personnel of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies or special needs.
***Should you happen to arrive 40 minutes or later into the service we are unable to check your child into RISE Kids. You will need to keep them with you for the duration of the service for that week. This creates a better experience for your children, the other children, and the volunteers.
Where to go after check-in
Your child’s age-appropriate classroom name can be found on their name tag. As you escort your child to their classroom, a Rise Kids volunteer will meet you at the door to welcome your child, receive your child’s diaper & any other necessary items you may have. You can hand them the extra name tag which they will put on the roster. We use the roster for a head count for any classroom emergencies, or to compare if a child loses their tag. If you have a diaper bag, you may place it outside the room, against the wall. Please inform volunteers of any specific instructions you may have for your child.
Drop Off & Enjoy Service
After you have completed the check-in process & taken your child to his or her room, wave a quick good-bye & head into the adult worship service. As you know, it is common for little ones to cry when a parent leaves. This, typically, does not last long. Separation will become easier over time. Our leaders will immediately engage your child in a toy or activity & ensure your child that you will return soon. If your child cries for an extended period of time, we will page you via text to the number you provided or your put your security tag number on the screen in the adult worship service.
When the time comes to pick up your child, please return to the appropriate room & present your security tag to the Rise Kids volunteer at the door. The tag will be matched to your child’s name tag before he/she will be released into your care. A child will not able to leave the room, with a parent, without the presentation of the security tag. In the event you lose your security tag, you will be asked to show proper government identification before your child is returned to you. Please make sure that you have all of your child’s belongings with you before you leave.
