Pastor John Houston announced today that Point Harbor Church in Chesapeake, Virginia will be reopening Children and Student Ministries Sunday, October 25 at 10 AM Eastern.
After months of limiting access to the church for children and teenagers the church has made all the necessary arrangements to open safely. There will be sanitized rooms available for the kids to use for their services. Masks will be recommended for all children 10-years and over. Temperature checks will be performed on all children and adults working in the area.
Children’s director Nancy Tuttle had this to say, “Hey, parents, this is Miss Nancy from Point Harbor kids. I’m so excited that I get to talk to you today because I have some really important things to tell you. We are opening children’s ministry this Sunday, kids are going to be able to go to their classrooms, we’re excited. And I know they’ll be excited for some precautions that we have to take, we have really studied this week.
We’re getting things all together, just so your kids can be safe and secure, and have a fun time at the same time. So I am going to walk you through and what you have to do, because things are going to be just a little different. So the first thing that you’re going to do is walk to the main lobby to check your kids in. We’ve got nursery, and grades one, two and three taken care of, then if you have preschool kids, you’re going to come to the end of the hallway and take a right come all the way down here. So the first doors on the left, we’re going to go outside and to where you normally go for checking in, but you’ve already checked in. So we’re going to take the kids in side the glass doors. And someone will be here to bring your kids in.
We’ll be at check in to take temperatures. So bring your kids here, they’ve already had their temperature taken. And we’re going to bring them to preschool. And someone will be here at the door to greet you. And they will take your kids to the door, the room that they need to go to. So do you want to know how to pick up your kids in the nursery. Now for those of you that have grades one, two, and three, you will enter through these doors that it’s next to the sanctuary. You will line up at the classroom that your children are at. It could be gray, this is 342 or one. And don’t forget to distance yourself from every one. We’re going to be safe. All right, so then once you get your children picked up, we’re going to exit out of this door.”
