Building for Growth & Safety.
At Abundant Life, we believe our children are a gift from God. We strive to instill biblical principles and truths into the lives of the next generation in both a fun and understandable way. That is why we are expanding our spaces, modernizing our technology, and providing more safety with better security.
To achieve this, we must put a priority on safety and security. In an effort to provide a safer and more secure children’s ministry area, we are making some important and necessary improvements to our check-in and check-out processes.
Our first improvement is the check-in and check-out procedures. We are upgrading our check-in stations with new kiosks with touchscreen technology that will be user-friendly to check in your child from new birth – 5th grade.
The second improvement we are addressing is in the area of security and safety. In addition to requiring a kid-check ticket/name tag, we are changing accessibility in and out of the children’s ministry areas. In order for a person to have access to the children’s ministry areas, including staff and volunteers, they will have to have a kid-check ticket or badge to enter the classrooms or the children’s ministry area. The parent/guardian or approved ticket holder must show their ticket to the Kid Life team member before the child can be released.
A New Traffic Flow.
Also, to improve our security in the children’s ministry area, the doors leading into the preschool and business office area from parking Lot C will no longer be a point of entrance or exit for Sundays, Wednesdays, or any events held on the campus of Abundant Life. The doors going in and out of the preschool and business office from parking Lot C will be accessible for emergency exits only.
Those who choose to park in Parking Lot C will have to enter through the front doors of the main lobby at the front of the church. We realize these changes may, in some cases, cause a minor level of inconvenience for some.
It is our hope that you will recognize that our commitment to providing a safer and more secure environment will benefit the children, friends, and families who attend Abundant Life. Thank you for your understanding!
