We love families and we encourage them to worship together. At the same time, we know that expecting young ones to sit through our main service is not generally practical. So we invite your children to join us each Sunday morning in our Children's Ministries!
As you enter the building, you will see a Winchester Kids Check-In Center straight ahead. Our Children's Ministry Director will welcome you and your child and give you a tour so that you feel comfortable that your child(ren) will be cared for in a loving, safe, and Christ-centered environment.We use a check-in sheet as well as a phone notification system for communication with parents concerning their child during the service if such communication is needed. We also use a buddy supervision system requiring at least two Children Ministries' workers in the same area while Children's Ministries are in session (but we often have three teachers in the same area for additional supervision).
We have two age groups in our Children's Ministries:
CHILDCARE: Birth through Age 2
Childcare is provided for children from birth through age 2 during the entire worship service. Our caregivers seek to make the most of every opportunity to show the children the love of Christ. You can rest knowing that if your little one needs you, our team will text you during the worship service.
CHILDREN'S CHURCH: Age 3 through Grade 2
Children age 3 through grade 2 attend the first half of the worship service with their parents. Then those who want to are dismissed to participate in Children’s Church, a ministry designed to introduce children to the truth of Scripture through lessons, stories, music, prayer, drama, and games.
Note: All childcare workers are members of our church and have been screened according to our policy which includes an interview and background check.
