KIDS' NIGHT OUT

Kids' Night Out is done for the summer- we'll see you in the fall! :) Thank you for all of your support!

What is Kids' Night Out?

Once a month (November-April) our high school ministry students host a Kids' Night Out for children birth-12 years of age. It's a night of games, crafts, group games, movies, popcorn, video games and more at our church from 6-10PM. The children have a blast as the parents are able to enjoy an evening to themselves! :)

Is it free?

There is no specific charge for this fun-filled evening, but any donations will be given directly to our high school mission trip. Our high school students and leaders host this event as a service to our community as well as to raise funds for their summer mission trip.

Who is watching my child(ren)?

Most of the staff are high school students, that are overseen by 3-5 adults. There is always a CPR/First Aid certified person on the premise and all adults over 18 have passed a background check. The lead staff in the nursery also is over 18, has passed a background check and is trained to work with infants/toddlers.

What are the rules?

We have some new rules this year to ensure the safety of the children that attend this fun evening. Please respect that there are NO EXCEPTIONS to these rules. We thank you in advance for your understanding and adherence to the following:

1) Children younger than 36 months must be in the nursery at all times

2) Children from ages 3-4 will be enjoying their time in our preschool room with their own activities until they are invited to join us for the movie at 8:15pm.

3) School aged children will be split into age appropriate groups (5-7years & 8-12 years) for the first hour of the event (due to the games that will be played). Then everyone will be reunited for the rest of the evening.

4) If a child is hurt/upset/homesick etc. we will do our best to distract/engage/comfort him or her. Calling you back to the church will always be our last resort, so PLEASE be mindful of that, should you receive a call from Ashley or Cory during the evening and please return in a timely fashion.
