KIDS TOWN IS BACK IN BUSINESS!
@9 & 11am services
sunday morning & beyond!
Masks are optional for both children and adults in Kids Town and the Park
In Kids Ministry, our goal is to introduce your children to Jesus, to each other, and to what a full life with God can look like. We sum this up with our tag line Live Fully.
We believe that living fully means living the way Jesus taught us to live as outlined in the Bible, specifically the Gospels.
We believe that the earlier a person begins living this way, the healthier (mental, emotional, relational, spiritual, etc) they will be!
We believe that this way of life begins with an introduction and blossoms into a relationship.
We sing songs, tell stories, and share experiences that will allow your child to meet Jesus and get to know him.
We give your child opportunities to ask questions and explore what a life of following Jesus can look like.
We foster a community of young people who want to be a part of what Jesus is doing in the world.
What to Expect
- We open for registration 15 mins before service begins.
- Masks optional
- Each family will have designated check in number for check in and check out
- In order to minimize unnecessary contact we ask that only one parent enters Kids Town if needed.
- Your child/ren will experience music, dancing, a bible story, a lesson, fellowship time, and a craft or activity.
- If necessary, we will call caregivers using the number assigned at registration- it will come up on screen in auditorium.
- Parents will present family number (given at check in)
- Child/ren will be called to dismissal door.
- The Garage (the playroom) is open once all children have been checked out and one caregiver must remain with child.
LEAVING FOR CAMP ON MONDAY!!
Arrive at church on Monday, July 18th at 12:30. We will be be holding a very brief last minute info session. About 10 mins. Aiming to be on the road by 1:00pm
WHERE IS CAMP?
Jaffrey, New Hampshire (about 2.5 hrs)
HOW DO I CONTACT MY CAMPER DURING THE WEEK?
In case of an emergency at home, you can contact your camper by calling Berea’s main campus at 603-744-6344 and asking them to connect you. However, they heavily discourage calls from home due to the possibility of it triggering homesickness.
WHAT DOES A DAY LOOK LIKE?
Day starts at 8:00 am with everyone back in their rooms by 10pm. Chapel twice a day and cabin devotions every night. LOTS of games and time to connect with the group.
WHO WILL MY CHILD ROOM WITH?
That will be determined after all the registrations are in but they will be with other Cape Cod Church kids.
WHO WILL BE MY CHILD’S COUNSELOR?
Also to be determined but rest assured that the counselors that will be going are already volunteers in Kids Town (so your child should be familiar with them) and have been security checked through Cape Cod Church and will have to go through the security application process through Berea as well.
WHEN DO THEY RETURN?
We are aiming to be back on Cape on Friday, July 22 around 1:30pm but that is totally traffic dependent! We will give every family a heads up via text or phone call when we are about 30 minutes away.
