Mainstreet is our small groups Bible study time for children. Preschoolers have the opportunity to attend Mainstreet during either the 9:30 or 11:00 services and engage in a unique time of hands on crafts, activities, and Bible story telling. A snack is usually served as well. (due to the high number of children with peanut allergies, we serve no peanut based products) Attending for both the 9:30 and 11:00 times is perfectly ok! All our classes are lead by different small group leaders each hour who do different lessons and fun activities! Elementary age children get their chance to hang out down on Mainstreet at 11:00 after the KidsTown Live show that most of the Elementary age children attend first at 9:30.
One of our most important rules is regarding our Sickness Policy. In an effort to provide for all children the safest environment in which to learn about Jesus, we keep a close eye on the overall health condition of the children brought to Mainstreet. If a child comes sick to church, they will not be admitted into a classroom with other children. Sick children will have to stay with their parents. We don't feel that any parent would want to bring a healthy child to church and a sick one home with them so please, if your own child isn't well, don't bring them to church and expect us to care for them and also infect the other children and ourselves. Please read our full Sickness Policy here.
One other important rule that we have down in Mainstreet for all the parents is the "Ten Minute Rule". Because some of our teachers work on Sundays and they also have their own families to get to lunch and afternoon activities, we expect all parents to retrieve their children from their classrooms withing ten minutes of the end of the service or their small group class. This does not mean you have to leave this fast from Capital, you can stay around and visit with other folks all you want, but you are responsible for your children after 12:40pm. Thank you for respecting our teacher's time by being punctual with this.
