At McConnell Baptist Church, we take the care & safety of our children very seriously. The following procedures are in place to keep all our children safe while on our church campus.

1. All Peak Kid’s volunteers must complete a childcare protection class before they’re allowed to serve in our children’s ministry.


2. All Peak Kid’s volunteers must have a background check performed before they’re allowed to serve in our children’s ministry.

3. We use a matching label check-in system in our Peak Kid’s department. Every child has a label printed out at our check-in station. The label has the child’s name & a number on it. The child will place the label on their clothes & their parent, grandparent or guardian will receive a matching label, which will be checked when they arrive to pick up their children.

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8
