Kids Ministry at MAC
At MAC, our kids (infant through 8th grade) 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. If your baby or toddler decides to stay with you and they get unruly, it's absolutely okay! We love the life kids bring to our services! You are also welcome to hang out in the lobby with your kids if you are more comfortable.
If your children would like to take part in our Kids' ministry, we have an amazing team of volunteers who care for our kids each week and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus. All our volunteers are screened and approved through our Plan To Protect process and we use a sign-in system called Planning Centre - Check-Ins so you can rest easy knowing your kids are safe and secure.
Meet our Children's Director
Hailey has been the Children's Coordinator at MAC since 2019. She oversees all MAC Kids Sunday programs and loves to lead kids as they grow in their faith and life.
MAC Babies and MAC Toddlers
Every Sunday we are pleased to offer two nursery options for young children. MAC Babies (ages newborn to 2) and MAC Toddlers (ages 2 to 4) are located downstairs. Children can be dropped off at any time in the service after being checked in at the Kids Check-in desk in the lobby.
Each childcare area is comfortable and fully-equipped. We are committed to providing your children with a safe and secure environment. All volunteers and leaders are screened and trained under our Plan to Protect policy.
You will be given a code when you check-in your kids. If our volunteers need to reach you during the service, your code will be displayed on the screen in the auditorium signalling you to return to your child's room.
Your First Visit to MAC Kids (JK-Grade 8)
Here's what to expect when visiting MAC Kids (JK-Grade 5) for the first time:
First, find the MAC Kids Check-In Desk in the lobby. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and one of our volunteers will let you know the location of your children's age-appropriate class.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
How check-in works
Before Service: Visit the MAC Kids Check-In Desk in the lobby and your child will be checked in by out of our volunteers. 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.
Children stay with their parents during the worship portion of our service. Kids are then dismissed after announcements into their classrooms. 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, you will pick up your children from their classrooms and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
