Reopening Updates | Birth–Age 2 Classrooms Opening, CoVid Safety Details

Birth—Age 2 Classes Opening soon!

PARENTS! We’re happy to announce that starting on December 6, our Birth—Age 2 classroom will be open for your little ones. Temperatures will be taken of all children as well as parents that are checking in kids to any of our classrooms. Hand sanitzer is available as well. Masks will not be required of this age. As a reminder, we are asking adults to wear masks while in our common areas and if possible, during our services as well.

We are so excited to safely reopen kids ministry in our Birth—Age 2 classroom. Starting the weekend of December 6, all Living Word Northwest kids classrooms will be open and ready for your family with a few minor changes just to keep everyone safe. However, one thing will be the same—our teachers, volunteers, and church are pumped to see you and your kids!

Things to know before arriving:

Family Health Check
Touch-free temperatures of kids and parents will be taken at our Family Health Check-in Station. If any family member has a temperature of 99.5 or higher, they will be asked to keep their children out of class for that day. Everyone entering and exiting the kid’s theatre will be given hand sanitizer at that time.
Check-in begins at 10:45 a.m. A volunteer will assist each family to maintain a touch-free check-in process. One parent may accompany their child into the kid’s theatre for drop-off.

Social-Distancing During Service
Siblings can be seated together. Other families will be seated two seats apart to allow for social distancing. Activities and lessons will be engaging and fun, but will also maintain a six feet distance.

Parents will remain in the hallway outside of the kids theatre. Each child will be sent out to meet their parent in this area for check-out. Please stand on the marked spaces in the hall while you wait for your child.

Face Covering Mandate

Gov. Tim Walz announced a statewide mandate  requiring Minnesotans to wear face masks in stores, public buildings, and other places where people gather indoors. Due to the fact we rent our space from the Rogers 18 Theatre, this mandate will require some changes at Living Word Northwest. In an effort to honor our partnership with them, we will be adhering to their mask policy:

  • Masks are NOT required in kids auditoriums.
  • Masks ARE required in common areas such as lobbies, walkways, and restrooms.
  • Masks will continue to be available at the main entrance.

We will also continue with the procedures outlined below:

Northwest Campus Reopening Plan:

Some areas in the theater will be open and some will be closed.
We’ll be going the extra mile to ensure everything is clean.

We won’t be hugging or handshaking and will remain six feet apart.

For the safety of our guests, masks are required in all transit areas of the theatre but they are not required in the auditoriums.
