• Mercy Hill Church Kids Ministry - The Adventure Starts Here

Welcome Back, Mercy Hill Kids!

We are so excited to be welcoming back our kids and families to gather together again at our campuses! As we restart MH Kids, we have taken every precaution to keep you and your kids safe as they worship with their friends and leaders and learn that the best life lived is a life lived for Jesus. Below you will find safety guidelines and what to expect as you return to our campuses. If your family is not ready to attend in-person services yet, don’t worry! MH Kids Online will still be available for you and your family each weekend. We can’t wait to see you in Mercy Hill Kids!

In order to ensure the health and well-being of our families, we have established the following safety and social distancing measures.

  • Kids PreK and up will be required to wear a face mask. 
  • Parents dropping off kids are required to wear masks while in the Kids Space. 
  • We will take the temperature of all kids entering the kids space and require hand sanitizer before entering. 
  • During check-in, we ask families to maintain 6-foot social distancing. 
  • We recommend one parent to drop-off and pick-up your child(ren). 
  • Toys/crayons/classroom supplies will be rotated out between services. 
  • Kids classrooms, restrooms and touch points will be disinfected in between services. 
  • No snack will be served during services (babies’ rooms are an exception)  

.

Snack will not be served in our classrooms for at least the first few weeks back. If youchild attends back-to-back services because a parent serves, they will receive a snack during the transition time. Team members will ensure kids maintain social distancing during this time. 

Cleaning will be done prior to the weekend. After each service, our team members will wipe down all surfaces and exchange toy/supply bins.

We ask that all children pre-school and up wear a face mask for the entirety in MH Kids. Toddlers are welcome to wear a mask but it is not required.  

Masks, buffs and face shields that cover the nose and mouth are all acceptable. 

  1. Let your child know we will check temperatures at check-in and volunteers will be wearing masks. 
  2. If your child is in preschool or above, let them know they will have to wear a mask the entire service. 
  3. Make sure your child is fed before class since we will not provide any snacks. 
  4. Grade School-age kids are encouraged to bring their own Bibles. 
  1. Classroom toys and supplies have been adjusted to minimize the spread of germs. 
  2. Tables and chairs will be spaced out. 
  3. Sit spots (carpet squares) will be utilized to encourage social distancing. 
  4. Classroom activities have been modified to be COVID-friendly. 
  5. Classes will not rotate rooms for worship time.  

We will still be offering MH Kids Online each weekend for you and your family to enjoy at home.

As we strive with families to see the Gospel go forth into every home of every family at Mercy Hill, we have established specific milestones. Milestones are tangible expressions of a child’s spiritual maturity and an incredible way for us as a church family to commission, celebrate, and make commitments with one another.
