What To Expect

INFANT:

We know that leaving your new baby for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our infant classrooms have been chosen for this age group because of their love for babies and their training to care for all of the needs of your infant. We hope that the following information will help you and your baby have a great experience on Sunday morning.

  • Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby through the morning.
  • Label all items that belong to your baby.
  • To ensure that your babies receive the best care, we adhere to a one volunteer to every three children ratio in our infant and crawler classrooms.

We promote your children from this classroom based on development. Around 18 months we will move them up to a toddler room. Your children’s teachers will communicate with you before this change is made if it is done prior to our Promotion Sunday each August.

For questions or more information, please contact our Nursery leader, Sandy Pike.


TODDLER:

This is a fun and active stage in your children’s lives. We are excited to care for them and look forward to teaching them that God loves them, God made them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever!

All activities are age-appropriate with plenty of flexibility for the needs of toddlers.

Please read the information below to help us make sure your child’s Sunday is GREAT!

  • To ensure that our classrooms are safe and to create the best possible learning environments, we adhere to a ratio of one volunteer for every four children.
  • We provide toys, activities, and snacks in the classrooms. We usually serve Goldfish and Cheerios. If we are serving something else, you will find a note posted on the door outside of your child’s classroom informing you of the new food item.
  • If your children have any allergies or special dietary needs and cannot eat what we have provided, please inform the teachers and bring appropriate snacks for them.

When your child reaches 3.5 years of age and is potty-trained they will promote to the preschool class. Parents will be informed if this promotion will happen before our Promotion Sunday in August.

For questions or more information, please contact our Toddlers leader, Angela Huber.


PRESCHOOL:

Your potty-trained 3.5 year old – kindergartner will enjoy Bible stories, music, games and a coloring sheet (or other craft) in the LifePoint Preschool class. Occasionally, we will have a snack, so please let us know of any allergies or dietary restrictions.

Our preschool class is currently using a curriculum called The Gospel Project, which is a three year series taking children chronologically through the Bible. Each lesson is centered around the Cross and what Jesus Christ did for us.

From The Gospel Project’s website: The Bible is not a collection of stories. It is one story, the story of God’s plan to rescue His people from sin and death. It is the story of redemption, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. And it’s our story, too.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • You will check your preschool aged child in at the Children’s Check-In desk in the main foyer where you and your child will get name tags. These name tags are used for picking up your child after the service.
  • You will be shown the Preschool classroom upon check-in at the Children’s Check-In desk.
  • Your child will then accompany you into the auditorium for Worship.
  • The Worship leader will dismiss the kids. Preschool teachers will be eagerly awaiting your arrival in the Preschool room.
  • We ask that you please take your child to the restroom before dropping them off in the Preschool class.
  • After the service, please pick your child up from the preschool classroom. Be sure to bring your name tag. For security reasons, we cannot release your child without seeing your name tag.

For questions or more information, please contact our Preschool leader, Carrie Duvall.


ELEMENTARY:

First through fifth graders will have a great time at LifePoint! Our elementary class is currently using a curriculum called The Gospel Project, which is a three year series taking children chronologically through the Bible. Each lesson is centered around the Cross and what Jesus Christ did for us.

From The Gospel Project’s website: The Bible is not a collection of stories. It is one story, the story of God’s plan to rescue His people from sin and death. It is the story of redemption, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. And it’s our story, too.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • You will check your elementary school aged child in at the Children’s Check-In desk in the main foyer where you and your child will get name tags. These name tags are used for picking up your child after the service.
  • Your child will then accompany you into the auditorium for Worship.
  • The Worship leader will dismiss the kids. Elementary teachers will be standing at the back of the auditorium to escort your children to their classroom.
  • The elementary classroom is located at the opposite end of Building 8. We will go out the main entrance and walk down the sidewalk to the elementary classroom. One teacher leads the kids and the other teacher follows at the back of the line.
  • Parents are encouraged to walk down to the elementary room on their first visit with their child to see where the classroom is.
  • Your children will be brought back down to the main building before the service ends. You will pick them up in another classroom near the auditorium. You will be shown this classroom at check-in.
  • On communion Sundays and holidays, elementary children will remain in the service with their parents.

For questions or more information, please contact our Elementary leader, Kathryn Ferguson.
