KidCheck App for Check-In

To help expedite the check-in process, as well as keep it “hands free”, we encourage you to download the KidCheck app on your phone. This will allow you to check your child in on your way to church. Once you arrive just click on the “Submit Check In” button and your child’s nametag + Parent Receipt will begin to print from one of our kiosks.

 

Don't have an account? Scroll down for more information on KidCheck.


 

This new curriculum from Cokesbury is all about honoring the spiritual life of children. Celebrate Wonder is centered around Bible stories and encourages children to explore their faith through Wonder Questions. Each week our leaders will use a Wonder Cube and a Wonder Box which will invite children into conversation to help deepen their connections to the Bible and to their faith.

 

December leads us through the stories of Advent: Mary's Good News & the birth of Jesus.

 

In January, we will go on a journey with Jesus.

KidCheck is a secure children's check-in system that enhances AHUMC's security system and simplifies the check-in process. KidCheck helps ensure no one can pick up your child without your consent.

Children's Ministries requires ALL children—nursery through 5th grades—to check-in through KidCheck. It is important you create your account before you arrive to church. Go to go.kidcheck.com, select "Create Your KidCheck Account" and follow the on-screen prompts. You can also download the KidCheck Mobile Check-In App to create, manage, & update your account right on your phone. 


Be a part of one of our Teaching Teams!

Would you like to be a part of one of our Teaching Teams? Our goal is to have teams of at least 6, so that leaders are able to teach as often as they want but also have the flexibility to teach once a month if that works better for your family. Please let us know if you have questions about being a part of a Teaching Team!


 

The AHUMC and Rio Texas Conference have partnered with Safe Gatherings to screen and train volunteers who work with the ministries who serve our children, youth, and vulnerable adults. Both the background checks and trainings are thorough and include best practices to keep our kids and vulnerable adults safe.
