Families and Children

COVID 19 Statement:

As we move into the reopening of the church, we want you to know that the health of our community is of utmost concern to the pastors and staff of this congregation. We are doing all that we can to stay current with public health guidelines, follow best practices for hygiene, and exercise an abundance of caution and care in responding to this situation. At all times, we will adhere to COVID safety measures and social distancing protocols.

Children’s Ministry at Round Hill (Pre-K through fifth grade) is founded on the belief that children are innately and joyfully spiritual. Children’s experiences here are designed to nurture spiritual development, familiarity with Bible stories, and offer the children what they need to continue their growth in faith. Family engagement and connectedness are at the heart of Children’s Ministry, with many opportunities throughout the year for families to come together with activities, fellowship, and opportunities to pray and worship together at Round Hill.

 

Children’s Ministries FAQs

As a new family, what can we expect when we arrive at Round Hill?

We hope your first visit to Round Hill will be a warm and welcoming one. When you first arrive on a Sunday morning, ushers will greet you and members of our Children’s Worship team are there to greet and welcome children and hand out name tags.

How does Church School work?

We invite all children and families to be part of the Children’s Message from 10:00 to 10:15 a.m. in the Sanctuary. From there trained teachers and staff escort the children to their own worship where they meet by grade level to participate in our Church School curriculum called Whirl.

What grades participate in Children’s Worship?

We are a Pre-K to fifth-grade program. (Nursery care is available for little ones, birth to potty-trained.) The program consists of four groups: Pre-K and K; first and second, third and fourth, and fifth grade.

What if my child doesn’t want to go to Children’s Worship?

Our goal in children’s worship is to create a loving environment that helps meet children where they are socially, emotionally, and developmentally. We recognize not all children are ready or feel comfortable leaving Mom and or Dad. That is OK! Your child is welcome to stay with you during worship in the Sanctuary. We do ask, if they are particularly wiggly, that you take advantage of our upstairs or back row seating marked for families. Additionally, we have speakers in the Church Parlor, and if you like you can take your child there and still hear the message. We encourage you to register your child for the program so that when they are ready, we have all their information and can make sure we have them in their appropriate age group to help give them the best possible experience.

What if my child has a food allergy, special needs, or something particular I am concerned about?

We very much want you and your child to be comfortable at all times. Please call us so we can learn more about them, and help make the program the best place it can be for them.

Who are the teachers?

Our teachers are members of our church who have been trained in our Safe Church Policies and have completed an official background check. They are partnered with a caring and trained staff person to help assist them in the morning.

What if my child is too young for the Children’s Worship Program?

Nursery care is currently not being offered due to the Covid-10 pandemic.
