We provide a safe, fun, age-appropriate environment for children (from birth to 10 years of age) during the morning worship service times. It is our desire to partner with you in discipling your children. In Little Metro, children learn the big picture of God’s redemptive story and his never-ending and never-giving-up love for them. Your kids will play, sing songs, eat a snack, create crafts, and have a blast!
To attend: Register your children at the Little Metro desk in the Fellowship Hall.
Nursing Moms: We have a space for you to privately meet the needs of your baby. Someone at the Connection Point, in the lobby, can direct you to our Nursing Mom’s Room.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is teaching my kids?
We realize that trusting us with your child is a big step, so safety and security are a top priority in Little Metro. Your kids are being supervised and taught by Metro Church volunteers. All volunteers have a desire to serve with enthusiasm while providing a safe environment. All Little Metro workers have been carefully are screened, pass a background check and complete training.
What are my kids doing?
A typical Sunday looks like this:
Play: Peer interaction allows adult volunteers to get to know the kids and play with them on their level.
Lesson: Every week the children have a story time based on a passage of the Bible. It is our goal to help your child see how Jesus is represented in all of the Bible, even in the Old Testament. We use this time to teach truth from the Bible that kids can immediately share with mom and dad on the way home.
Snack: Each week, kids have a short time to eat a snack. Please see “will my kids eat anything?” below for more information.
Craft/ Activity: Kids will create a craft or activity that corresponds with the bible lesson. We want to help children express their creativity and imagination. Hands-on crafts, acting out the story and engaging in object lessons provides a unique time where kids can interact and see the bible lesson from another angle.
In case of an emergency, how will I be notified?
When you register your child, two labels are printed. The first label is a sticker to attach to your child’s back and it shows their name, age, and any important note (e.g., food allergy). The second label is a receipt for you to keep for two reasons. 1) you will show this label to pick up your child after the service, and 2) in case of an emergency, a 3-digit code will be displayed on the screens in the theater. This code corresponds to the 3-digit code that you can find on the label you kept at the time of check-in. A Little Metro volunteer will meet you in the lobby with further instructions.
Will my kids eat anything?
Every week, kids in Little Metro have the opportunity to enjoy a light snack. This consists of a small amount of animal crackers or goldfish and a cup of water. If a special snack is being offered in your child’s class, teachers will get approval from parents during drop off. Babies in the nursery are not given a snack, unless provided by the parents with instructions to feed them.
**If your child has a food allergy and that was not included on their name tag during the check-in process, please notify a Little Metro worker immediately.
Where do I go after the service to pick up my kids?
Pick up your children at the same room(s) you dropped them off. You must show the receipt (that printed at check in) in order to pick up your child.
