We're excited to introduce our new electronic check-in system for Children's Ministry beginning Sunday, November 18. Our new nursery will also be open downstairs by the Multipurpose Room. Electronic check-in will be available for infants to 6th grade and will be required for attending all Children's Ministry classes and events. We are thrilled to have all of our children in one area that can be better secured, and we hope you will pray for us as we transition to using this new security system.
1) Have you filled out the Kids Connect registration form?
To save yourself time and to ensure we have the information we need to check in your child(ren) please fill our the Kids Connect Registration Form. Help us make the new Check-In process go smoothly by completing your Kids Connect Registration Form. Click here or on the link below to fill out the form if you haven't done so already.
2) Arrive early
We encourage you to arrive a few minutes early to allow time for Check-In.
3) Where do I go?
Check-In stations are located in the lobby of the Multipurpose Room, and we invite you to enter the building at the east entrance (glass doors in the back). An additional Check-In station will also be available in the lobby of the Sanctuary for the 10:45 am service.
4) How does Check-In work?
Once you are in the system, quickly type in your phone number at one of our kiosks, and your family information will come up on the screen. Then choose the event your child/children will attend, hit print, and your child's name tags will come out complete with a private code on the parent tag and the child tag that changes weekly.
5) What do I need to pick-up my child?
To pick up your child, please bring the parent tag that you receive at Check-In and present it to the teacher. Your parent tag will match the child name tag. Please note only parents or guardians will be able to pick up children. 4-6th grade children may return to their families on their own.
Here is a list of where our children will be located:
Room 110 - Walker/Crawler room (all babies)
Room 113 - 2s/3s
Room 114 - 4s/5s
Room 115 - Parent Comfort Room (diaper changing and nursing room)
Room 117 - Kindergarten/1st Grade
Room 118 - 2nd/3rd Grade
Room 119 - Kids Connect Worship Room
Room 217 - 4th-6th Grade (Bridge)
At Salem, we strive to be a place where children are welcomed, served, encouraged in their faith, and kept safe. We appreciate your cooperation as we roll out these new processes that will improve the care and teaching of Salem's little ones.
