2|42 Kids is an interactive experience that helps kids take next steps with God. Kids learn through the use of fun object lessons, engaging skits, up-beat music, video and small group interaction. Our committed leaders and volunteers teach spiritual truths kids can use in their daily lives. Our goal is for kids to experience God in the following ways.
We want to make sure your experience at 2|42 Kids Ann Arbor is the best! One way we want to set you up for success is by preparing you for what you can expect. You might have some questions about what we’re all about and what happens during a 2|42 Kids service. Maybe we can help answer some of those questions.
From your child’s first visit, we will collect some basic information to get to know your child, and enter them into our system. From then on, each time you check in, both you and your child will receive a security sticker with a matching 4-digit code, valid only for that day. We ask that both you and your child wear this sticker visibly on clothing, until you leave. (We also offer additional stickers to label diaper bags, personal items, etc.) When dropping your child off, you will have the opportunity to share any information with one of our leaders that will help in caring for your child; such as feeding and sleeping times. If you’ll soon be visiting us for the first time, please plan on visiting our New Family kiosks about 10-15 minutes before service starts.
After dropping your child off, relax and enjoy the service! Our teams serve to ensure your child(ren) are well taken care of, and have a great experience while in our care. However, if you are needed, we will display your 4-digit code on the monitors in service to alert you. Please be attentive to the screens throughout the service; and if your number is displayed, head to the 2|42 Kids area to speak with a leader.
Pick-up is a breeze. First, you will be asked to show your security sticker to your child’s room leader and they will then match the number on your child’s sticker to the number on your sticker, prior to releasing them. If you happen to misplace your security sticker during service, proper identification will be required for release in order to match you and your child in our system. That’s it! Getting your little ones to 2|42 Kids is simple, and efficient. We hope to see you and your children this weekend for worship.
