Security--Security is top priority at Shore Fellowship Church. Each child is issued an identification tag at check-in along with a matching tag for parents. At time of pick up, we ask that you present this to your child's classroom teacher to ensure that each child is released to the proper adult. We also require that anyone picking up or dropping off a child be at least 16 years of age. We will not release a child to anyone under that age, with or without an identification tag.
Parent Notification System--Our system is designed to let our parents know when their child is ill or has been inconsolable for more than 10 minutes. Your child's code which is located on the tag will appear on the large screens in the worship center. This will let you know that you need to come and pick up your child immediately.
The "Comfort Room"--We feel that while at church, the best place for your child is in their age appropriate classroom where their teachers have been praying and preparing throughout the week to meet your child's needs. We also want to reduce the possibility of distraction for other adults in the church service. Should your child need one-on-one attention from you, we have provided a room at the end of the nursery hallway that will minimize disruption, while allowing you to enjoy the service on the tv screen. This is also ideal for nursing moms.
Sick Childen--For the safety of all our children, we will not accept any children with the following:
- a fever of 100 or more
- discharge in or around the eyes
- green or yellow runny nose
- any communicable disease
If your child should become ill during the service, we will page you using our parent notification system so that you may come and pick up your child. If your child needs medication during their stay, it must be administered by the parent.
Who is keeping my child? Our ministry staff is comprised of individuals who have accepted Christ as their personal Savior. It is their desire to share the love a Jesus with your child. All of our classroom teachers, helpers, and greeters go through a screening process.
