Classes Birth–Kindergarten are open!

All the kids Birth-Kindergarten are able to attend their classrooms. Please check out our policies and guidelines to ensure that safety is a priority. Due to limiting the number of kids in our younger classrooms, and the need for extra volunteers to adhere to our increased sanitation guidelines, we are asking that you RSVP for each child that will be attending. Please take a little time to let us know which service your child plans to attend.

A few ways we can be safe and together.

Our staff has been working to create a safe and secure environment for our Kids Ministry. If you plan on coming to church in the weeks ahead, here are a few things to expect during your experience.

    1. You will need to register your children using the RSVP button on this page. RSVPs will be received up to 30 minutes prior to the start of each service.
    2. Kids check-in begins 30 minutes prior to the start of each service. We recommend you arrive as early as possible. Unclaimed RSVP spots for the younger classrooms will be opened to walk-ins at the start of each service. 
    3. Once you arrive at church, you can check in your children in the Kids area of the main lobby—and it will be touch free!
    4. Toys will be sanitized at the start of each service.
    5. Clear directions will be posted for the flow of traffic to and from our Kids Ministry classrooms.
    6. Temperatures will be taken of all parents, children, and volunteers prior to coming into the room to ensure all temperatures are within a healthy range.
    7. Volunteers and staff will be wearing masks unless they are at the front of the class ministering.
    8. Please pick up children promptly after service.

Please Note: We will be doing everything we can to practice limited contact in our younger classrooms.

How we are keeping your kids safe.

We love you. We trust you. Our new guidelines and procedures are in place so you and your family can trust that we are doing everything we can to ensure your church experience is as safe as possible. We look forward to seeing you soon.

  • If you or your children are experiencing symptoms, please stay home and enjoy our services online.
  • Once you arrive at church, you can check in your children in the Kids area of the main lobby—and it will be touch free!
  • Clear directions will be posted for the flow of traffic to and from our Kids Ministry classrooms. Please follow all the posted directions so each of us can stay safe and appropriately distanced before and after each service.
  • We will be taking touch-free temperatures of all parents, children, and volunteers prior to entering the Kids Ministry area to ensure all temperatures are within a healthy range.
  • We encourage kids to refrain from physical contact with each other as much as possible. Please know that everyone is at different comfort levels with interaction currently, and we want to respect each other.
  • Surfaces and toys will be cleaned before and after services.
  • Volunteers and staff will be wearing masks unless they are at the front of the class ministering. 
  • Please pick up children promptly after service.
  • Enter through the designated doors on the north and south side of the building. (Check the Where to Enter tab)

Please be reminded that this time of limited contact is temporary but important as we take care of each other as a church family. We appreciate your help in making this transition as smooth as possible.

By the way, we are planning and preparing for when and how we will open services for Birth–3 years old children in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for news of when this will happen!

Please Note: We will be doing everything we can to practice limited contact in our younger classrooms.

Do I need to reserve seats?

An RSVP using the form on this page will be required for our teams to plan our volunteers and staff accordingly for each service. Please take a little time to let us know you are coming.

What are your service times?

Our Brooklyn Park main services are at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, at 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday morning.

How early should I arrive?

Doors open about 45 minutes before each service. Kids Ministry opens 30 minutes before for kids check-in.

How and when are you cleaning your facility?

Kids Ministry is thoroughly sanitized before and after each service. The facility, including meeting spaces, restrooms, and public areas are all being cleaned and sanitized regularly.

Will masks and hand sanitizers be available?

Yes!

Restrooms

Each restroom is being monitored to make sure there are not too many people in the space at the same time.

Can I still watch online?

Absolutely! Services are still steamed to our website, YouTube, and Facebook.

Please enter and exit through the atrium and main entrance doors.

 

We can’t wait to be with you all this weekend, in whatever way you choose to attend!

A church for children

A place for kids to discover God’s love

Here at Living Word, our purpose is to create a safe, clean, and comforting environment for your kids while they learn about the love of God. Your littlest ones from birth through Kindergarten are welcome here. They will attend separate classrooms according to their age and development. By having consistent teachers in the classrooms, our goal is to get to know you and your children so they look forward to coming to church each week.

Safety, cleanliness, and appropriate teacher-to-student ratios are a priority to create the best possible environment for your children. If for any reason your child needs you, we have a number system that enables us to reach you while you are in the sanctuary, chapel, or small group rooms.

In addition, simplicity and repetition are the building blocks of how we teach our kids, and our teachings are designed for each age level. Ultimately, our desire is to support you as you train your children in the encouragement and love of God.
