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.

We will promote your child from this classroom based on development. Around 15 months we will move them up to the toddler room. Our nursery coordinator 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, Angela Huber.


TODDLER:

This is a fun and active stage in your child’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!

Toddlers will enjoy a variety of age-appropriate centers which include a praise & worship music area, busy wall, book nook, magnets, and many more!

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

  • Please label your child’s bags and cups with their names.
  • We provide toys, activities, and snacks in the classrooms. If your child has 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. Our toddler room coordinator 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 Toddlers leader, Angela Huber.


PRESCHOOL:

Your 3.5 year old – kindergartner will enjoy Bible stories, music, and crafts in the LifePoint Preschool class through our Play & Worship curriculum!

This curriculum is all about teaching them about Jesus in a way that young children can understand! Each week features activities so fun, it’s practically impossible for even the wiggliest or squirmiest children not to be fully engaged. The irresistible songs and simple object lessons make teaching Bible truths fun and applicable for this energetic age group. Occasionally we will have a snack, so please let us know of any allergies or dietary restrictions.

Your child will promote to elementary once they have completed kindergarten on our Promotion Sunday each August.

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, Katie Creamer.


ELEMENTARY:

First through fifth graders will have a great time at LifePoint! Our elementary class is currently using a curriculum called Dig In: Digging into the Heart of God. Digging Into the Heart of God brings a fresh approach to growing a lifelong relationship with God. As kids explore God’s character throughout the Bible, God transforms them from the inside out. Kids discover what it means to reflect God’s Heart in everyday life.

Later in the lesson, the elementary class takes the Bible lesson a little bit further through a segment of our curriculum called “Digging Deeper”. This segment allows us to take what we are learning and apply it to our elementary students’ lives and really dig in deeper to the Word of God.

On communion Sundays and holidays, elementary children will remain in the service with their parents. We have sermon notes available for children to use when they remain in the service. These are available on the Get Connected wall at the back of the auditorium.

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 in the kitchen 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 child will be brought to the preschool classroom before the service ends for pick up.
  • On communion Sundays and holidays, elementary children will remain in the service with their parents.
