Form Information - Please complete this form for each child.
If you are signed in to Church Connect, there are less fields to complete. :-)
Our church is a church family. In a family, children learn from adults, so we model our worship to our children and include them in the first half of our worship service. On some Sundays we have percussion instruments that they play along with! Halfway through the service, the children will be dismissed to go downstairs for a large group activity and then a small group lesson geared towards their age. This time is called Kids in the Word and all children participating are required to have this permission form filled out in order to participate. Additionally it needs to be renewed each September when the program kicks off again for the year.
We have a Youth and Young Adults group that meet at least monthly. All students age 17 and younger are required to have a permission form filled out in order to participate. Additionally it needs to be renewed each September when the program kicks off again for the year.
Information received is confidential and is being gathered for the purposes of serving your student while in the care of the church.
