Children’s Ministry Guidelines
Maples Memorial United Methodist Church

Eight Weeks through 5th Grade

Safe Spaces
Policy established to demonstrate Maples’ commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth and adults. Copies are available upon request.

We ask that all our volunteers attend Maples for 6 months and go through a background check to volunteer with the children.  We ask that parents volunteer with our ministries.  If you would like to volunteer please contact Sarah Kirchhoff.

Automated System

We have an automated system to check in our children.  Once you check in your child you will receive two stickers; one for the child and one for the parent.  When you pick up your child, please show your sticker to the teacher so they can match the number on the child's sticker. 

2 year-olds through 5th graders will be offered a snack of goldfish crackers and water.                                              

Please leave all toys at home as they are a distraction and can be disruptive.
