FAQs

If your child is in our Sunday morning program, we will notify an usher who will pass your name to the pastor and an announcement will be made.

All of our teachers are carefully screened volunteers who have been trained in our Child and Student Safety Policy and have completed a recent Background Investigation. Volunteers have a genuine desire to share Christ with your children in a friendly environment.

We have an electronic check-in system that supports the safety of our children and makes it easier than ever for the families. Children in preschool-grade 5 can be checked in at our welcome stations on the first or second floors. Nametags are printed for children and a pick-up tag is printed for parents. You must bring your pick-up tag to pick up your children (we recommend you wear it to avoid losing it). Replacement pick-up tags can only be issued at the Welcome Station on the second floor. Please be prepared to show a photo ID if you have lost or misplaced your pick-up tag.

We strive to provide a place where children will receive inspiration as they learn and grow. Kid Nation partners with parents to help kids develop a faith in Jesus Christ that lasts a lifetime. Children learn about God through music, interactive learning, Bible lessons, service and prayer.

All children are invited to join us for our Sunday morning programs. We provide a Buddy program for children with special learning needs who benefit from individualized support. Through our Buddy program, children are matched with a volunteer buddy to assure appropriate supports and assistance so that they can participate fully and successfully in classes with their same-aged peers. Please contact Karen Berlin to receive more information on our Buddy Ministry.

Join us Sunday Mornings

Kid Nation, Floris UMC’s Sunday morning ministry for preschool-grade 5, is offered during the 9:15 and 11 a.m. services. Kid Nation partners with parents to help kids develop a faith in Jesus Christ that lasts a lifetime. Kid Nation provides relevant teaching that is scriptural and that kids can apply to their everyday lives. We are committed to helping children develop relationships with their peers, leaders and, most importantly, a personal relationship with Jesus.
