We want to make sure Downtown remains a safe place to learn about Jesus. Our Child/Youth Safety Policy keeps kids safe from the nursery on up. All teachers in our Bible classes have had a background check.  We have several security features in place for each different age group:

NurserHand in Hand Logoies: When an infant/toddler is brought to one of our nurseries, the parent is given a pager. The number on the pager is written on the child's name tag. When it is time to pick up the child, only the person with the pager may pick up the child.

Two's - Kindergarten: We use a double-tag system to keep these youngsters safe. Each child is given a name tag, and the parent is given an identical tag. At pick-up time, a child may be picked up only by the person with the matching tag.

Elementary: 1st through 6th grade is located upstairs in our children's wing. We ask that parents of 1st graders drop off and pick-up their children for Bible class. 2nd graders through 6th graders will be dismissed on their own. However, we think it is a good idea for these parents and kids to have a specified meeting place after Bible class.

Parents!  Once your children leave our care, it is important that you understand your responsibility while you remain in our church facility.  Please be aware of where your children are and remember that all children on the playground must be supervised by a parent.
