A Warm Welcome
As you and your child approach our check-in desk, you will be greeted by a member of our New Kids Check-In Team. You will receive a name tag for your child and a corresponding security tag for yourself at our computerized check-in location. Please alert check-in personnel of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies and special needs. You will, then, take your child to their designated room that is printed on the child’s name tag. Please note that parents are not allowed in the New Kids environments without the corresponding security tag. All serve team members have been through a screening process to ensure the safety of your child.
COVID UPDATE: At this time, all kids ages 5 and up, along with our New Kids Team, will still be asked to wear a mask while participating in our environments.
HOW DOES NEW KIDS WORK?
Baby and Child Dedication is a ceremony when parents and family commit their child before the Lord and pledge their desire to raise them up in God’s ways and will. Its an act of worship where parents recognize their child is a gift of God’s grace and commit to caring for it as if it was God’s own. It is also a moment where the church community has the opportunity to stand with you and affirm our commitment to serving your children and their faith.
While we do not sprinkle or christen young children at New Community, this ceremony is modeled after the biblical traditions of Hannah's dedication of her child Samuel and even Mary and Joseph's dedication of Jesus. During our worship experience, family's are invited to stand before the church to make their commitment.
