KIDZ CHECK IN & OUT PROCEDURES

Before Service: You can check-in your child at the Kidz Check-In Counter located in the lobby. You and your child will be given matching tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag. Your child will also receive a wrist band, indicating they have been checked in.


After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.


During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, the Kidz Ministry director or Security Personnel will call you.
