Where do we go when we get there?

Look for our name above the double glass doors. This is where you will enter. Our greeters will be outside to welcome you and show you where to go. If you have children, our Children’s Ministry team will escort you to the check-in desk to make sure your little ones are all taken care of. They will also be happy to answer any questions you may have. If we can answer any questions before you visit, just click here to drop us a quick email.

What do you have for kids?

We have safe and clean children’s areas with trained volunteers who will love your children and take excellent care of them. Below is a summary of each of our children’s areas so you can know what to expect:

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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, contact our Elementary leader, Kathryn Ferguson.


For safety and security reasons, parents must remain on the premises during the time their child is in our care.

All Children’s Ministry leaders and volunteers must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. Must have faithfully attended LifePoint for at least 6 months.
2. Must complete our Starting Point Class.
3. Must clear a criminal background check.

What are the children's check-in procedures?

First time visiting our children’s ministry? At LifePoint we believe children are a blessing from the Lord! Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and loving environment to help them grow in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. We know separating from your children in an unfamiliar environment can be difficult, but knowing what to expect can help ease some of that uncertainty.

Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us. We strive to provide a safe environment for your children. Every volunteer and staff member complete a background check and training to ensure your child’s safety.

Upon arrival, someone at our Children’s Check-In Desk will walk you through the process of registering your children in our ministry. They will escort you to your children’s classrooms and answer any questions you may have.

Each week when you are checked in using our computerized check in system, you will be given a randomly assigned security code assigned only to your family. This code changes weekly. The code will print on a name tag for the child and one will be printed for you, the parent or guardian. This tag will also include any medical notes, such as allergies, that your child may have so all volunteers will be aware. That tag must be presented in order to pick up your child. Please note we do not allow elementary age children to check in or pick up their siblings.


For safety and security reasons, parents must remain on the premises during the time their child is in our care.

All Children’s Ministry leaders and volunteers must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. Must have faithfully attended LifePoint for at least 6 months.
2. Must complete our Starting Point Class.

What is your children's wellness policy?

In order to protect the health of the children in our care, LifePoint’s children’s ministry has developed a strict wellness policy. A child exhibiting any of the following symptoms, or appears to be unwell, will not be admitted to their class. By adhering to this policy, we are ensuring that sick children get the care they need at home and that the children in our classrooms, as well as the medically fragile members of our congregation, remain well.

The Committee of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a child should not be taken from home when any of the following are present:

Symptoms within the past 48 hours:

  •    Fever of 99.6 or greater
  •    Pale/Flushed skin color
  •    Diarrhea, vomiting, complaints of a stomachache
  •    Watery/red eyes
  •    Pink eye or other eye infections
  •    Persistent and/or productive cough, Sore throat
  •    Excessive sneezing
  •    Stuffy/runny nose (yellow, green)
  •    Any unexplainable rash
  •    Extreme fatigue/lethargy
  •    Any symptoms of common childhood diseases, such as chicken pox, strep throat, hand foot and mouth, head lice, pertussis, etc.

Here are a few more details to be aware of:

Recent Illness:
Children who have been ill within the past 3 days need to have had at least 48 hours of non-medicated recuperation time before coming to class.

Possible Illness:
We will ask a parent to remove their child from class, and from further exposure to others, if we suspect they have a contagious illness or become ill during class.

No Symptoms:
A child who complains of not feeling well needs to remain with their parent, even if no symptoms are present yet.

Medication:
Please note that teachers cannot administer medication. If a child requires medication during the service, we ask that the parent administer it.


For questions or more information about our wellness policy, please contact one of our Children’s Ministry Leaders.

For safety and security reasons, parents must remain on the premises during the time their child is in our care.

All Children’s Ministry leaders and volunteers must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. Must have faithfully attended LifePoint for at least 6 months.
2. Must complete our Starting Point Class.
3. Must clear a criminal background check.

What type of music do you have?

The short answer is, all kinds. We enjoy singing not only the worship songs of today, but also the hymns of the past. But while we use many styles of music, we are very careful to make sure that the songs we choose are biblically correct, and that they serve as a help to worship, not a distraction. What is most important is that our worship is not about us. It is about Him. It is about coming together as a church, laying down our personal preferences and lifting our hearts and voices in unified worship to our heavenly Father.

What type of teaching do you have?

At LifePoint we believe the Bible is the Word of God, and it is our sincere desire to preach the Bible in all its truth without watering anything down. But we also want to teach it in love and in ways that we can all apply to our daily lives, just as Jesus did. So why not find out for yourself?

How does everyone dress?

We encourage people to dress comfortably. For some, that may mean dressing up, but for most it simply means wearing casual clothes. Contrary to church tradition, the New Testament clearly teaches us that the church building is not the “house of God.” It is nothing more than a building. So we do not want to burden people unnecessarily by requiring them to dress up in fancy clothes they do not normally wear just to “go to church.” Wherever we go, we are God’s house, so there is no need to put on special clothes on Sunday when the church gathers together. The Bible simply tells us to dress modestly and decently so that we do not become a distraction or a temptation to others.

What are your people like?

At LifePoint you will find:

  • Real people with real issues, hopes, dreams, successes and failures
  • People from all kinds of places — all discovering how to know and love God
  • People who genuinely care about you and your family
  • A friendly, loving atmosphere
  • An opportunity to join others in something bigger than ourselves

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we would love to hear your story and help you find hope, forgiveness and purpose through the life-changing message of Jesus Christ!
