Read below about our plans and adjustments for Ignition at the mc3 building related to COVID-19:

Dear Parents of Ignition Children (Nursery through completed fifth grade):

We are excited to restart Ignition beginning July 5th!

This letter is to make you aware of what we will and will not be doing as we open up our Ignitions Bays. By letting your child attend, you take full responsibility if your child would contract COVID-19.

We would love for your child/children to join us but we understand if you are apprehensive. If you do not feel comfortable with your child attending please feel free to have them sit with you in the Worship Experience: in the garage, under the outside canopy, or in the lobby overflow area for some “room to run”. Or you can watch online live with your family Sunday mornings at 10am at (mc3Church.org/LiveStream)

Children will be children and we can only do so much to keep them from being in contact with the other children, especially in our Nursery and Toddler Bays. We will make sure hands are washed, toys are sanitized, and the bathrooms are cleaned. Upstairs we will try to practice safe distancing. We will not be opening the upstairs restroom and we will not be opening the Acceleration Station (Games) at this time.

We will be taking temperatures, and ask that you follow our guidelines for sick children that we already have in place. (We ask that you please keep your child out of Ignition if your child has had the following symptoms in the past 24 hours: Vomiting, Diarrhea or Fever of 100.4 or above ). We will also be taking the temperatures of our Ignition workers for your child’s safety.

Check in will be done outside. (The canopy is waterproof, but if we are having a major thunderstorm we will move inside)

Parents will be permitted in the preschool hallway one at a time to drop off and pick up their children. When the older children are dismissed from the Worship Experience they will immediately go upstairs and be divided up into rooms as they come up. At the conclusion of the morning, the older children will be escorted to the garage/canopy to meet up with their parents.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. (michelle@mc3church.org, on Facebook, or in person.)

mc3Family is a ground-breaking concept using a truth you already know: You are the parent. You are raising your family. You are responsible for them and you love them!

Spending time as a family has gone from a way of life to a rare treat in our busy world, and we want to change that. We as a church want to equip YOU to be your child’s best teacher. We believe your family is uniquely suited to introduce your child to Christ and help him or her grow in their journey. We are going to do everything we can to make that experience fun, interactive, bonding and HABIT-FORMING! We have some great things dreamed up and can’t wait for you to share them with us!

mc3 meets in a transformed garage and we are having a lot of fun with that. Your child will have class-time in a Bay. Their Sunday experience is called Ignition. The weekly family app is called mc3PitStop. They will learn about God and growing in their faith in a way that is relevant to them and fun to remember. Being in a garage is more than just a crazy theme – it is a great reminder that growing closer to God doesn’t take anything fancy – it just takes us.

mc3Family incorporates our core value of c3 (caring) with opportunities like our annual mc3Missions Christmas Project that enable your family to make a difference together.

Ignition
Ignition happens while you are in the Worship Experienc²e. There is nursery care for the little ones, and preschool through fifth grade are in small groups with their peers. Ignition includes singing, crafts and an engaging, entertaining point that is the same thing you are learning in the Worship Experienc²e. You can talk about it in the way home! What did you like best? What will you remember? It is a shared experience. These groups are mentored by screened, dedicated workers while we worship in the main garage.

 

mc3PitStop App
mc3PitStop is an app designed to give you weekly, on-the-go opportunities to discuss the Point with your family, using NEW and previous videos from the gang at Wilson’s Garage with simple questions for discussion.  Characters from Wilson’s Garage will entertain, educate and captivate both your family and you. mc3PitStop NOW includes specific, age-graded content for Pre-K, Ignition, and mc3Student AND with weekly SMS notification reminders! Learning together has never been so much fun! Follow the instructions here to download
