Children's Ministry

Super Important!!!!!

Covid-19 Policy

2020 brought a variety of challenges including Covid-19. It is the standing of CBC Kids Ministry that we will respectfully follow the guidelines of the CDC and Governor Kate Brown. This is not a political statement but a biblical statement. Romans 13:1-2 ESV, "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed..." As followers of Christ we are commanded to respect the authority God has put in our lives. The only time we go against authority is when what they tell us to do disobeys God.


Guidelines


  1. Children 5 or older must wear masks
  2. Children who are sick or have any Covid symptoms will not be allowed to enter the kids classrooms
