Elementary

where kids belong and get excited to love God and love others

Our Purpose

Kids need to belong. Our purpose is for first- through fourth-graders to feel like this is “their place”. In our church, we want kids to learn to love God and know He loves them, too. We want them to develop lifelong friendships and learn to love and serve one another. We want them to have fun, be eager to come to church each week, and not want to leave when it’s over. And we want to partner with and encourage parents as they spiritually nurture their children.

We can’t wait to meet you! Here are some ideas for how to get connected with us.

Plan your visit

We love having your family share your Sunday morning with us! We hope your experience at Stonebriar leaves you smiling and ready to come back. Here are a few helpful hints to make your morning go smoothly.

 

REGISTRATION

To enroll your child for Sunday morning, you may pre-register or stop at any visitor check-in desk on campus.

CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT PROCESS

Upon arrival, visit any of our check-in desks located on the first and second floors of buildings B and C. Provide the phone number you used to register.

 

Once you have your nametags, a friendly guide will show you where your children’s classrooms are and help you find your way to your own Sunday Fellowship or the main service.

 

To pick up your child, the Class Leader will ask for the pick-up receipt (second tag) you received at check-in. We ask that whomever picks up the child be at least 18 years old unless special permission is given to the Class Leader by the parent.

 

SNACKS

We offer a small snack on Sunday mornings. If your child has special dietary needs, please provide an appropriate snack for them.

 

NURSING MOMS AND CRY ROOM

Private (mothers only) and comfortable nursing rooms are located in the nursery (C114) and near the Worship Center (A115). A family/cry room is also available (A113). The service will be played on a TV so you can still participate in worship.

Health and Safety

Health Policy

Our policies and procedures are designed for safeguarding all children.

 

We do not provide any medications while children are in classrooms, except bandages. If a child needs medication, we will ask the parent to come administer it. Epi-pens and inhalers are an exception.

 

To minimize spreading germs, parents are requested to not bring sick children to church. Parents may be requested to pick up children from their classroom if they have any of the following symptoms:

 

  • nasal discharge (other than minimal, clear nasal discharge)
  • any discharge or substance around the eyes
  • fever (must be fever-free for 48 hours without fever-reducing medication)
  • unidentified rash
  • inflamed throat and/or mouth
  • excessive coughing or sneezing
  • head lice
  • open wounds without proper bandages
  • unusually lethargic or irritable behavior

 

Children being treated with antibiotics should be on their medication for at least 48 hours before entering one of our classrooms.

 

Safety Policy

For the safety of our children, we lock the lobby doors to the elementary area during the worship service. You may be asked to show your pick-up tag if you need to enter the area during the time period when doors are locked.

 

If you do not have the pick-up tag for the child you are picking up, you will be asked to show your driver’s license to the teacher, or they may request another form of verification.

 

We ensure that all of our volunteers are screened with applications and background checks. This is for the safety of your children. If you desire to visit a classroom, you may be asked to complete a background check authorization, or your visit may be limited or monitored. Thank you for understanding.
