At IPC Children's Ministry, we are committed to:
Partnering with families to raise children that love and serve Jesus
Building and growing relationships — kids to Jesus, kids to kids, and kids to volunteers
Creating a place where children are emotionally and physically safe
Great care is taken to meet each age group's developmental needs with fun, biblically-relevant teaching and opportunities to build relationships with peers and adult volunteers. We believe that it is important to equip parents to take an active role in their child's spiritual education, so our classes provide monthly take-homes. This is a useful tool as it informs parents about what is learned each week, as well as provides ways to continue learning at home throughout the week.
On Sundays, children worship together with their families, then are dismissed to their classes.
Children's Ministry is available for kids 1st–6th grades (9:45 and 11 am)
Childcare is available for children kindergarten and below (9:45 and 11 am)
Because creating a safe environment for learning is one of our core principles, we ask that you check your child in at one of our electronic check-in stations on Sunday mornings. Here are some check-in tips:
Check your child in before the worship service
Signs on the patio will point you in the direction of your classrooms
Arrive early to allow extra time for the check-in process
Place one check-in tag on your child, and keep to other in order to check your child out after service — your child will not be able to leave class without showing your matching tag to his leader

Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Each year we create an exciting summer experience where kids can make friends and grow closer to God.
Save the date for VBS 2019: July 8 - 12!
Refuel Family Nights is a special night for the family to come together. Each quarter we'll have dinner and worship together, then adults will enjoy a workshop focused on a specific topic such as marriage, parenting, etc., while kids have their own fun activities.
Other special activities tied to church and calendar seasons are planned throughout the year for children and their families. Included are a Harvest Celebration, Thanksgiving worship, Ash Wednesday worship and supper, Easter Celebration and a 6th grade graduation celebration.

Child Protection Policy
We believe that God has called us to care for and protect the children whom he has entrusted to us. All adults working with minors on a frequent and regular basis at IPC will be selected, trained, managed, and evaluated in accordance with the selection and training procedures and guidelines for conduct set forth in the Child Protection, Abuse Prevention and Reporting Policy.
