We believe you will find Stanwich Kids Church to be a safe and fun place for your children to experience church. We look forward to meeting you and worshipping God together!
If you have an infant or a toddler that you wish to drop-off before services begin, you may go directly to the Nursery located in the Children’s Wing, or you may enter the sanctuary and our Greeters will direct you to the nursery. As you sign-in your child with our KidCheck system you will receive a pager which vibrates if your child is having a hard time adjusting and we need to reach you.
If you prefer to have your infant or child stay with you during the service and need to leave the service to comfort or feed your child, a Comfort Room is located downstairs (Greeters can direct you) where you will be able to view the service on television via a live feed. The room is equipped with toys, couch, rocking chair, changing table and supplies.
Ages 3 through the 6th Grade:
Children ages 3 through the 6th grade begin in the sanctuary with their parents and are dismissed to Kids Church following the junior sermon in the morning services and after the third song at the Evensong service. Every child needs to be checked-in at a KidCheck station. This can be done either before the service begins or immediately after the children are dismissed from the sanctuary to Kids Church. Your child will be assigned to an age appropriate Small Group for the remainder of the service. Following the service, pick up your child in the Children’s Wing (detailed pick-up information will be in the Guardian Tag received at the Kid Check Kiosk), and then join us for Coffee Hour in Emmaus Hall for food and fellowship.
The registration and check-in process is important for the safety of your children and to help us efficiently keep everyone organized.
Initial Registration: The first time you visit, you will need to register your children at the computer kiosk located in the Children’s Wing or the foyer of the sanctuary (someone will be there to assist you) using our KidCheck program.
KidCheck Attendance & Check-in: Once registered, check-in your children each week at the computer kiosk by using the KidCheck key-tag or the phone number associated with your account.
