Children's Ministry

 Welcome to our Coastside Children's Ministry!

Children are one of our core ministries at Coastside Church! 

We desire to create a safe environment for your children to learn Biblical values and grow closer to God.  Children, ages 3 1/2-5th grade join parents, during the worship period of the service, and will be dismissed to class.  We feel that an important part of their spiritual growth is experiencing the larger church worshiping together.  Nursery is open for the entire service time. 

Please feel free to contact our office, with any questions or concerns.

 Nursery                                        @ 10:30 am –12:15 pm

For Newborns through 3 years old.

Our nursery is a loving and safe place to leave your baby or toddler.  It is located in the building between our worship center and the gym.

When you arrive in the nursery special instructions can be noted on the sign in form.

We recommend that parents leave a diaper bag (with your child’s name and necessary supplies.)

Please also send snacks and drinks for your child!

Safety

We operate our children’s program under Safe Place guidelines.  This means:

·      We take your child’s safety very seriously.

·      Specific training for all our teachers and aides on a regular basis.

·      Every volunteer receives a thorough Background Check & must let us know a full history. 

·      All children will only be released to the adult who checks them in. 4th and 5th Graders may check themselves in and out with adult permission. 

·      Pagers are available for parents of nursery aged children.

·      Every classroom is connected to other leaders in the church, which can be contacted in an emergency.

Dismissal, Sign In and Pick Up

We leave the option of keeping your children in the worship service with you for part, or all of the service. We ask that you be sensitive to those worshipping around you.  We provide coloring materials and books on the back table that you are free to pick up as you enter the Worship Center.

When bringing your child to class, please sign each child in on the appropriate sheet, put in the time, and your initials, then do the same as you sign them out! Class teachers will assist you. 4th and 5th Graders may check themselves in and out with adult permission

Please be prompt in picking up your children at the end of Sunday School classes, within 5 minutes, if possible, so our volunteers can clean up their classrooms and attend service! For those picking up children at the end of Sunday service, it's also appreciated if you can within 5 minutes.
