Kids Ministry at MAC
At MAC, we love families and kids! We are offering programs for kids in grades JK - Grade 5 on Sunday mornings. We are also excited to be offering childcare for children aged 18m-3year. Weekly registration will be required for child care spots and can be done when registering to attend live Sunday Services. In addition, a one-time registration form is required per child for the 2021/2022 year at MAC (see below).
At MAC, kids experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. We would love to see you and your family visit MAC. You can expect your kids to feel welcome and at home. We will also be following the guidelines set out by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit for child care in response to COVID-19.
If your children would like to take part in our Kids' ministry, we have an amazing team of staff and volunteers who care for our kids each week and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus. All volunteers are screened and approved through our Plan To Protect process and we use a registration system called Planning Centre so you can rest easy knowing your kids are safe and secure.
Your 1st Visit to MAC
Here's what to expect when visiting MAC Kids (JK-Grade 5) for the first time. One-time registration for the year will be required and can be done online below.
Before Service: When you arrive, find the MAC Kids Check-In Desk in the lobby. There we will meet your family, check your registered child into our system. You and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
Childcare (18m - 3yrs): You can drop off your kids after they are checked in. We will direct you to the toddler room in the lower hall.
Elementary (JK - Gr 5): Children stay with their parents during the worship portion of our service. Kids are then dismissed after the Kids Moment into their classroom in the lower hall. The code displayed on your child's name tag will be displayed on a screen in the auditorium if your attention is required during the service.
After Service: After the service is complete, your children will brought to the front of the auditorium where you can pick them up. You will need to show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
