We are ready, now, for our XRC Kids to come back in the building. We have been working hard, especially Ms Brittany, to make sure XRC Kids is a safe place for your kids to return too. Ms Brittany used her experiences with YMCA camp over the summer and as an employee of the school system to apply best practices here in the building. As of September 6, 2020, we are reopening our toddler nursery, Jr Kids (preschool) and XRC Kids (K-5). For now, our baby nursery will remain closed. If you have a baby who doesn't yet walk, they can join you in the sanctuary. We also have a mother's room that you are welcome to use.
All of our volunteers, in addition to the previously required background check, are also having their temperatures checked and completing a COVID screener before serving. We are requiring all volunteers to wear masks while serving with our children.
You can download the KidCheck app onto your smart phone and log in using the same information that you use to check your child in here at XRC. Then on Sunday mornings, you can check your child(ren) in before arriving at church. Once you arrive, we will already have your stickers printed! We will check temperatures of each child and ask them a couple screener questions as well. Then our volunteers will escort them to class. To limit the number of people that we have in the classrooms, we ask that you do not walk your child to class. After service, you can return to the check-in area with your parent slip and we will bring your child up for you.
Our toddler and preschool classrooms don't have a ton of changes. Following CDC recommended guidelines, social distancing/limited numbers are not required at these ages. We are changing snacks to ensure that everyone snacks at the same time and all snacks will be prepackaged.
In XRC Kids, we have moved out the chairs and many of the toys and now we will be having a block party for our kids! Each child, upon arriving, will choose what kind of activity they want to play with. They'll get that activity and then they'll get to choose their own block for the day. It's their personal block party! We will be changing up how things work a little in there, but Ms Brittany and her team will continue to make it a fantastic experience.

For the time being, we will be combining middle school and high school for XRC Youth! Youth will begin meeting again on Sunday, September 13. Group will meet 4:00-5:00 here at XRC. Temperatures will be taken for each student upon arrival. Pastor Nathan & Mrs Faith are so excited to have you back again. Please reach out to Pastor Nathan for questions- email@example.com
