Childcare Protocol

St. Mark’s is a very visible and centrally located church with lots of entries. On Sundays all entrances are unlocked from 7:00 am – 3:00 pm. While we are welcoming of all people, our primary responsibility is safety for anyone in the building, especially our children.

We follow the guidelines in Keeping God’s People Safe.

Children age 11 and younger must be under direct supervision at all times. During classes and activities sponsored by the church, the Keeping God’s People Safe procedures require two persons over the age of 18 to be in charge. Outside of those classes or activities, a child 11 and younger must be with any family member 12 years old or older.

Parents, please direct your children age 11 and younger to stay with a teacher/leader until you are reunited. Most children join parents in church, but if your child needs to come to a classroom or nursery, instruct your child to stay with the leader/teacher assigned.
