But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Luke 18:16
FCL’s Children’s Ministry is available to all ages from kindergarten to sixth-grade.
Our Promise to You:
The Elders and Volunteers at Fellowship Church Lubbock are dedicated to serving you and your children with excellence. We treasure the opportunity to get to know your children and we’re thankful that you have entrusted us with the privilege of being a part of their spiritual formation! We hold your child’s spiritual development in the highest regard and are dedicated to insuring that your child’s time with us is well-spent in the study of God’s Word. To that end, we promise to provide a safe, clean, enjoyable and nurturing atmosphere as we disciple your children according to God’s Word.
Staff and Volunteers:
To provide the best care and ensure your child’s all-around safety, each FCL volunteer must:
(a) be interviewed and APPROVED by the FCL elders,
(b) pass an annual independent BACKGROUND CHECK, which is kept on file, and
(c) COMMIT to follow FCL policy and to attend periodic volunteer meetings which are designed to maintain the high standards of our children’s program and to ensure the ongoing security, well-being, and spiritual welfare of every child.
Solid Biblical Teaching:
Every lesson is Bible-based and has been elder-approved. Our objective is to preserve the integrity of the Word of God and never to simplify the truth out of Scripture! Our lessons are designed to teach “the whole counsel of God” and to help your child learn, remember and rely on Scripture – not just at church, but in their daily lives at home and school as well. To that end, we strive to provide lessons that are mindful of each child’s age, needs, capabilities and vocabulary so they may be “equipped for every good work.” (Acts 20:27; II Timothy 3:16-17)
Safety and Security:
We are committed to caring for your family’s safety and physical needs. Our strict check-in procedure includes gathering your child’s vital information, including particular requirements and any allergies. We maintain a safe children-to-teacher ratio with multiple volunteers in a clean and tidy teaching area with first-aid and sanitizers at hand. We do not employ punitive discipline at any time. Children who are distraught or unmanageable, as well as toilet-trained children who need to use the restroom, will be escorted to a parent. All diapers will changed by adult female volunteers only. At check-out time, children will be released only to the adult person who was responsible for check-in. Finally, we have established an emergency safety plan and keep a hall monitor and emergency volunteers standing by during every service.
