Answer: Our Childcare and Sunday School rooms are located on the first floor of our Education building, below the Murchison Chapel. Sunday School is 10:00 to 10:45 a.m.
Answer: Please be prepared to bring a diaper bag with two or more diapers, wipes, ointment and a change of clothes. In addition, please bring formula, breast milk or any snacks (nut-free) for your child during their time in the Nursery. All items from home should be labeled with the child’s or family’s name. For more information, please read the article Separating at the Door.
Answer: Yes, we serve goldfish and animal crackers during a reflective “feast time.” We also have gluten-free trail mix as an option. Please inform your teacher or childcare worker of any food allergies when signing in your child for Sunday School or childcare. If needed, you are welcome to bring your own snacks from home. Please note, FUMC Kids is a “nut-free” environment so we ask that all outside food brought into Sunday School or childcare contain no nut products.
Answer: All children, infants through 5th grade, are checked in by a guardian at one of our three check in stations on the first floor before being escorted to their classroom. There are two self-check in stations for registered kids; one is at the west entrance of the childcare hallway and other one is at the west entrance of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade hallway (to the right of Wesley Hall). The visitor check in station is between these two hallways (under the Sanctuary), and a church staff member or volunteer will help visitors check in and find their child’s classroom. Children must be picked up from their classroom by the adult who has the badge with the code matching the child’s.
