Logistics for program Sundays once the church reopens:

Drop Off: Children can accompany parents into the sanctuary for worship at 10:30am, and then they will be sung out to the Dining Hall after approximately 15 minutes. Parents are welcome to accompany children to the Dining Hall, where our CSD Leaders will gather them into their groups: PreK – Kindergarten, First-Third Grade, and 4-5th grade, Middle School Youth Group (7-8th grade), and Coming of Age (8th- 10th grade). 

Parents and guardians are also welcome to accompany the children and Leaders back to the CSD rooms, especially if you have never seen them before! 

Parents are welcome to sit in a CSD session or visit at any time. Your children’s safety and happiness is important to us, and we want you to know exactly where your children are at all times.

Dismissal: We are asking parents of PreK-Kindergarten and 1st – 3rd Grades to come back to the CSD rooms (in Sullivan 1 and Sullivan 2) around 11:45AM to pick up children. 

Children in 4-5th grades will be able to head back to the Dining Hall on their own after their workshop is over.
