First LR Kids

Birth - 5th Grade

At First LR, kids are a HUGE priority!

We believe that kids are the future of the Church - and are a HUGE part of the Church today! We've made it our mission to do whatever it takes to reach, teach, and equip our kids to be all that God has called them to be! Our nursery, preschool, and elementary-aged kids have state-of-the-art facilities and a phenomenal team of volunteer and paid staff to help make sure your kids are safe, having fun, and learning to be more like Jesus!

COVID Guidelines

Early Childhood

All Early Childhood workers will be screened and have their temperature checked every time they serve.  They will wear name tags and masks the entire time they serve.   Gloves, face shields a will be worn as needed.

All children will have their temperature checked and we will ask parents to verify the following:

  • My child does not have a fever (100 °F or higher) and has not used medication to reduce fever within the last 24 hours.
  • My child does not have a cough, shortness of breath, or other COVID-19 symptoms.
  • My child has not had pneumonia recently.
  • No one in my household has had contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days.

Classrooms will be set up to allow for space between children, but at times children may be closer than the recommended 6 feet.  We will utilize fun, creative, and developmentally appropriate ways to encourage distancing such as dividers, lap desks, pack ‘n plays, etc.

Class sizes and interaction between classes will be limited as much as possible.

Children will be given individual supplies that will not be shared with others.

All areas, toys, and supplies will be cleaned before and after services.

We will encourage children to wash their hands often and use hand sanitizer as needed.

We will encourage children over 2 to wear masks through fun games and gentle reminders when possible – but wearing a mask is not required.  Parents can provide masks and we will have disposable masks available.

To reduce the spread of germs, we will not accept personal items except for essential items for young children such as a diaper, change of clothing, bottle, pacifier, etc.  A Ziplock bag will be provided at check-in for these items.  Diaper bags and infant car seats will not be accepted.

The Grove

Early Childhood Ministry

Nursery/Preschool (Birth to 5 Years Old)

All your children, ages birth through preschool may be checked in all in one place.  Follow the signs to child check-in!  Early childhood care is provided during every service by warm, caring attendants. All of our team members have had background checks and are trained to give your child the best care! We have an excellent nursery facility for infants (Birth to 1 year old) staffed by qualified and loving attendants.  Toddlers (1 to 2 years old) will enjoy a fun play time, worship, Bible craft and snack.  Your preschool child (3 to 4 years old) will love our play area, worship time, and Bible lesson that corresponds with the message in the Main Services and snack in our fun room just for them!

The spiritual development & safety of each child is of primary concern at First LR!

Our General Policies

The Grove opens 30 minutes prior to each service/event.

Children are to be brought to the check-in counter by a parent/guardian and will only be released to the parent/guardian with a Parent Pick-Up Sticker.

Parents/Guardians should come for their children immediately following the service or event they have attended.

Please see that items belonging to your child are properly and clearly labeled. This should include:  diaper bag, diapers, plastic bottles/cups, pacifiers, drinking cups, and blankets.

Babies will be fed pre-measured formula, milk, or juice as provided only by the parent/guardian.  Toddlers will be provided with a snack and water.  Time and circumstances do not allow for any other type of feeding (including spoon-feeding infants).

Toddlers will be provided with a snack and water/lemonade. Time and circumstances do not allow for any other type of feeding.

We try everything in our abilities to calm an upset child for up to 15 minutes. After that, we will call the parent/guardian. That time frame can be catered for each family until the child feels comfortable staying in the nursery.

High Voltage Kids Ministry

Elementary-Aged Kids Ministry

Elementary (K – 5th Grade)

High Voltage Kids Ministry is for elementary aged kids (Kindergarten through 5th Grade).  We have tons of fun and exciting activities for kids to be involved in!  All of our SLAM services and activities are in our state-of-the-art kids ministry area located just across the parking lot from the Sanctuary.

SLAM

SLAM, our kids’ service, is designed for kids in Kindergarten through 5th Grade.  Your kids will enjoy a power-packed hour filled with hilarious games, fantastic music, crazy characters, and powerful teaching from the Bible!  Each week our kids learn the exact same thing as the adults, but on an elementary-aged level, so that families can learn and grow together each week!

All of our campuses are learning the same lessons each week, so if your child has to miss SLAM, they can keep up with the series by watching SLAM at our main campus, First NLR, live or on demand at slamkids.tv!
