This ministry year, we are so excited to be able to re-gather for in-person Children's Ministry, following health and safetey protocols in order to love and care for one another.

As a community of faith, our ministry to, for, and with children and families is as important as ever.

** For Fall 2021, Southwood Kids programming will be held outdoors for as long as possible, weather permitting. Then, when we transition back into the building, it will be in distanced spaces with masks and HEPA air filters running. **

Everything you need to know about Kids' church!

Things look a little different this Fall ...

Children AGES 3 AND UP are invtied to join together each week for music, games, bible stories and more!

Kids can be dropped off any time after 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings at the North corner of the parking lot. We ask that grown-ups check kids in at the Kids' Zone before heading inside for worship. Children need to stay on the 'church side' of the orange cones until grown-ups come to pick them up after service to ensure safety. Adults need to register for service weekly. When inclement weather forces us to move indoors, we will be in the Fellowship Hall, where masking and distancing will be in place. In addition, three large HEPA filtration units will be operating during any indoor activities.

To maintain as safe an environment as possible (given the active COVID cases across our province) kids will be meeting outdoors as long as the weather permits. Masking and distancing will be in place and masks will be required to enter the building to use the washrooms. We have decided to keep masking in place at all times, including outdoors, to eliminate any hygiene and logistical challenges that arise when removing masks.

A reminder that kids who have been confirmed to have COVID, have been in close contact with a positive case, or who are feeling unwell or experiencing any possible symptoms, should not attend during their illness or isolation period.

At this time, we will not be providing Nursery care, however, the Nursery is open (with worship service audio available) for grown-ups to take children UNDER 3 into if needed. The Nursery will not be open to children over 3 years of age. Washable toys are available and a receptacle will be provided for used toys, which are run through the sterilizer after use each week. Families will need to register through the service registration system for the Nursery as there are only 3 distanced spots available due to spacing.
