KIDS / Middle School
1. What ages are involved in Blue Ridge Kids?
We seek to make this your child’s favorite day of the week so we use skilled volunteers, technology, fun activities, and excellent environments to communicate the timeless knowledge of our loving God. Blue Ridge Kids is designed for kids birth through 5th grade. We divide our ministry into 6 age-appropriate environments: 0 - 12 Months, 12 - 24 Months, 2 & 3 Year olds, 4 &-5 year olds, K-2nd Grade, 3rd-5th Grade. For our teens we offer a Middle School program- 6th thru 8th grade - at 10:15 a.m. 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
2. What do you teach the kids?
Blue Ridge Kids teaches basic Biblical truths in exciting environments. We use relevant curriculum that is designed to communicate basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, and what it means to follow Jesus. Parents are encouraged to partner with us to continue faith development at home throughout the week (Deuteronomy 6:5-9).
3. Will my child be safe?
Safety and security are fundamental to our kid’s experience. We use a secure check-in system to ensure each child is checked in and accounted for at all times while participating in Blue Ridge Kids. A matching portion of the child’s tag is given to the parent at check-in. This pick-up tag must be presented for your child to be released. All staff and volunteers are required to complete a background check and all volunteers work together to ensure your child has a safe and fun environment.
4. Can I take my child into the adult service?
We hope you will feel comfortable choosing to have your child participate in the Blue Ridge Kid’s experience where they will learn and be engaged at their level. If you would like to experience the adult worship service with your young child, all we ask is that you utilize the family viewing room located next to the kids check in station.
5. How will I know if my child needs me?
Parents can be notified via their tag number at any time on the screen in the worship service. If you see your tag number on the screen please simply return to your child’s class.
6. Is my child too sick for church?
To ensure the health of all the children and volunteers, parents are asked not to bring children, who have, or have had a fever, pink eye, vomiting or diarrhea, or any type of infection within the past 24 hours.
