|Hey Sherwood Kids West families,
We are happy to announce that we have finalized an in-person gathering plan for those kids who would like to gather together with their peers in the church building! So, beginning on August 9, you will have the option of placing your kids (infants through 5th graders) in age-appropriate programming on Sundays during the 9:30 and 11:00 services. To mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 during these gatherings, we will implement some new best practices. For more information about these changes (including policies about masks, protocol for symptomatic kids, etc.), feel free to check out the detailed plans at socc.org/kidswest.
Please know that this plan has been developed by the Sherwood Kids! staff and reviewed by the Monroe County Health Department as well as other Environmental Health and Safety experts. We realize that, while it doesn't eliminate the risk of spreading COVID-19, it will mitigate the risk and allow us to provide a physical space each week for our Sherwood Kids! team to help raise up the Church of the next generation.
Also, remember that the in-person gathering is just one of the tools Sherwood Kids! offers to equip you to be a Christ-led influencer in your child's life. We will continue to provide the Faith Tools, Teachable Moments, Story Time, Weekly Bible Story Videos (from Orange Curriculum), and the Sunday Zoom Hangout via our webpage (socc.org/kidswest), Facebook (Sherwood Kids West), and Instagram (@sherwoodkids_west). Feel free to mix-n-match how you use any or all of these tools in your family to help your kids grow in their relationship with Jesus.
For those of you who have questions or concerns about our In-Person Gathering Plan for Sundays or any of the tools we offer, please consider joining us in the Elementary Classroom or via Zoom on July 26, and August 2 at 12:00pm (email Becky for meeting ID and password - ). We would be happy to answer any questions you may have!
Keeping you all in our prayers!
Becky and Nate
