At Providence Road, we have a heart for your child's heart. We strive to provide a safe environment, plant the seeds for a lifelong relationship with Jesus, and make friends along the way! Year-round, we offer developmentally appropriate programming where kids can experience Jesus in a way that excites them.
Visiting? Here's what you need to know:
Safety is of the utmost importance to us. All of our staff and volunteers have gone through the Safechurch program to ensure that your child is safe at all times. This includes background checks, reference checks, a minimum tenure of six months, personal interviews, and training prior to serving with children.
If you are a first time visitor, look for a volunteer with an "I Can Help!" badge. They can help you to register your children at our check in station. You will receive three stickers. One for you, one for any diaper bags or backpacks, and one for your child. The barcodes on your stickers will match and you will need to bring your sticker to pick your child up from class or nursery.
Babies and Toddlers
Babies: Our baby nursery is for babies ages 6 weeks to 23 months. It is located in our main building. Babies are welcome in the nursery during service and 10 AM Bible Class. During Bible Class, they will enjoy an interactive and musical class just for them!
Toddlers: Our toddler nursery is also in our main building. 2 year olds are welcome to play during service and stay for their own Bible class here as well.
Nursing and Cuddle Rooms: Not quite ready for nursery? We have two nursing rooms in our main building. One is in the back of our auditorium. This room has one way windows so you can see into service but your privacy is protected. Rocking chairs, snacks, a refrigerator, blankets, diapers and wipes, and a changing table are provided. There is also a nursing room inside the baby nursery. This room has rocking chairs and a changing table as well. The sermon is also broadcast into this room for convenience.
KidsQuest: 3 years-3rd grade
3 year olds through 3rd grade attend Bible class at 10 AM in our Adventure Building. Signage will direct you there. Classes are divided by age and a volunteer can help you find the correct classroom for your child.
3 year olds through 3rd graders are also invited to attend KidsQuest Worship during our worship services. This age group will begin service in the auditorium with their parents and be released after communion. KidsQuest Worship is an interactive worship experience for kids. In KidsQuest Worship we sing, memorize scripture, and learn Bible stories in a way that is fun and engaging! For safety, please escort your child to the Adventure Building and return there to pick them up directly after service.
Quest 456: 4th-6th grade
The goal of Quest 456 is to begin to transition our kids into the youth ministry. We continue to deliver age appropriate teaching but we do so in an environment that is more similar to the youth group's. We also encourage a community and relationship building aspect which is more characteristic of our youth ministry as well.
Our 4th through 6th graders attend 10 AM Bible Class in the Adventure Building. Their classes are split by gender to allow for a small group atmosphere. A volunteer can help you find the correct classroom for your child.
Preteens attend worship with the rest of the church family. Kids' bulletins are available to them in a lock box at the check-in desk in the main lobby. Preteens can fill out a bulletin and return it to the lock box with their name on it. Mrs. Emily draws a bulletin once per quarter to win an amazon gift card.
Our Preteens also enjoy monthly activities that are just for them and their friends are welcome too!
Additionally, once per year, "456ers" attend an overnight retreat at Camp Thunderbird that is just for them. Here, they welcome third graders into the preteen ministry and 6th graders graduate into the youth group.
We look forward to getting to know you. For more information, please contact Emily Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
