It all starts with us!
When Do They Meet?
Compassion Kids is offered at every Compassion Radford service for infants through 5th grade.
We have programs for kids age 5-9. Please call the church at 540.639.6287 for more details!
At Compassion our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, clean, & fun environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
We would love to see you and your family visit Compassion Kids.
Your First Visit
Here's what to expect when visiting Compassion Kids for the first time:
First, find the area marked for first-time families. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
How Check-in Works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
