Parent Guides & Lesson Videos

Connect with Us | Sign up for our Parent Newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with updates so we can partner with you on investing in your kid's faith. The Newsletter sign-up and social media links are below.


Parent Facebook Group | Join the FCC Kids Parent Group on Facebook - A community space for parents to stay connected with each other, upcoming events, and what your kids are learning on how to love God and love people. Requests to join are monitored by the FCC Kids staff team so that only parents of FCC Kids are admitted. This will be a private, safe space for our parents to connect and share together.

Safety

We take safety and protection of our kids seriously. We follow established policies and procedures to ensure safety and security.

Parents are given a parent badge that matches their child's when checking in. When a parent or guardian is picking up their child, we will verify the identity of the parent and matching name tag before releasing the child.

All volunteers must complete a criminal background check and a volunteer application. All volunteers check in and are identified with a volunteer name tag.

Our Children's wings are secured and can only be accessed by our team during services.


Protocol | These are the COVID 19 procedures we have in place to maintain a safe environment as we kick off the year together.

  • Volunteers will be at the check-in stations so parents only have to grab their name tags.
  • We ask that no personal items are brought into the classrooms. Baby bottles and pacifiers can be brought in a Ziploc bag. Diapers will be provided for the Early Childhood classes.
  • One family member may walk their child to class. If your kid feels comfortable going from the check-in area to the classroom by themselves, that is preferable.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be located at the entrance of each room. Kids will sanitize their hands as they enter and exit their room.
  • Rooms will be set up for social distancing for elementary students and arranged so the younger children are in smaller groups.
  • Toys will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the morning in addition to during the week.

Volunteer

We have volunteers every week who are helping shape the lives of the kids in our community. If you want to be a part of helping these kids learn about Jesus and his kingdom, just click the Volunteer card below.

Parent Resources

Our heart is for your kids to become passionate followers of Jesus and extraordinary neighbors. We want to provide resources to help you lead your children well. You can find resources, information about what your child is learning, and sign up for our parent newsletter below.
