Safety and Security for Children

Pagers are available to parents and each child is also given a tag with a unique code. Should your child require your attention during the worship service, you will be paged and/or your unique code will be displayed on the screen in the Sanctuary.

METTykes is strictly a “no peanut zone.” Safe snacks are provided. If our child has additional dietary concerns you may send in a properly labelled snack provided that you have discussed your child’s needs in advance with the Team Leader in the room.

Parent Resource

We know that you are the most important teacher your child has.  For that reason we will provide you with a parent handbook that will show you every week what we are teaching your child and how to reinforce these truths in your home.
