Whether it’s praying for and singing with our babies, teaching our toddlers big truths about God, or teaching our oldest kids how to see Christ throughout the entire Bible, we are passionate about teaching our kids about Jesus.
RedeemerKIDS is more than a place where kids hang out with adult supervision. Our volunteers are trained to engage your children at their specific development level, making every Sunday a memorable experience.
Each volunteer and child is created and gifted differently and we have teachers with a variety of teaching styles and activities reach all the kids in our care.
Kids learn through having fun and we want them to joyfully learn about Jesus.
We have worked to make it as easy as possible for you to worship with us! When you arrive, you can check in your children at one of our RedeemerKIDS check-in areas. If it is your first time, a volunteer will walk you through the entire process. You are welcome to check in your child before the service, or keep them with you for the songs before the sermon and check them in before our Offering.
For your child's safety and your peace of mind, we will:
- Do background checks on all volunteers.
- Have allergy alert stickers available at check-in.
- Provide a security tag for your child and ask for the parent's portion of the security tag before releasing any child at check-out.
- Have a text-messaging system available for easy contact in case of emergency.
- Have a security camera system through the RedeemerKIDS area.
- Require anyone entering the children's ministry to show their security tag to a security volunteer.
We request that you do not drop your children off at RedeemerKIDS if they have any of the following symptoms:
- A temperature of 100 degrees or higher in the last 24 hours
- Diarrhea or vomiting in the last 24 hours
- Severe coughing
- Colored nasal drainage (not due to allergies)
- Pink eye
- Head lice
- Undiagnosed rash
- Open skin lesions
- Any communicable disease
RedeemerKIDS believes that God created us all uniquely in his image with an amazing purpose in mind. Our desire is for all children to learn about Jesus Christ in a loving, safe, and accommodating environment. By providing a special needs ministry in RedeemerKIDS, we aim to welcome all children, including those with special needs, to participate in our classrooms.
RedeemerKIDS Duos seeks to remove unnecessary barriers and create deeper inclusion by providing a child with an intentional and consistent one-on-one Duo in the classroom. Duos volunteers receive training and awareness to support families at Redeemer who have children with behavioral, emotional, and/or physical considerations. Duos commit to attending RedeemerKIDS with their buddy every Sunday to build consistency and relationship with the paired family.
We feel that having a Duo can benefit any child who would thrive with more support due to a special needs diagnosis, behavioral challenges, or trauma. If your child would benefit from a consistent one-on-one Duo in their classroom, please fill out the family interest form so we can start the pairing process. If you have additional questions, you can email Alix Carruth.
If you are interested in volunteering as a Duo to support families with special needs at Redeemer, we’d love for you to join our team by filling out this form.
We look forward to loving your family
