COVID-19 Policies and Procedures
In keeping with the Session directives of May 10, 2021 and the latest Shelby County Health Department directives regarding Covid precautions, the following policies and procedures will be followed. Please help us by familiarizing yourself with and adhering to these guidelines.
Key Policy Updates:
• Masks are now optional for FEC Kids, parents, and volunteers beginning this Sunday, May 16.
• We are not required to maintain social distance. However: If you have close contact with someone who is COVID positive you still have to quarantine per state guidelines unless you are fully vaccinated or have had COVID in the past three months and are not showing any symptoms. So social distancing is still a good idea when possible, to prevent major life disruptions.
• We will continue to request child registration and will meet in current rooms* through the summer in order to continue to allow for social distancing as needed.
• We will offer 9:30 a.m. Nursery beginning June 6.
• We will resume regular (pre-COVID) children's programming for PreK and Elementary on Aug. 8.

God's Very Good Idea By Catalina Echeverri, Trillia Newbell
God's very good idea is to have lots of different people enjoying loving him and loving each other. This stunningly illustrated journey from the garden of Eden to God's heavenly throne room shows how despite our sinfulness, everyone can be a part of God's very good idea through the saving work of Christ.
This book celebrates diversity and will help children see how people from all ethnic and social backgrounds are valuable to God and how Jesus came to rescue all kinds of people. It will also excite them about being part of church - God's delightfully different family.
God Made Me and You: Celebrating God's Design for Ethnic Diversity By: Shai Linne
This beautifully illustrated children's book invites kids to explore God's design for ethnic diversity and challenges readers---both parents and children---to learn and live out counter-cultural, biblical views, fostering a lifelong celebration of diversity for the glory of God. Designed for four- to eleven-year-olds, God Made Me and You by Shai Linne is the second book in the God Made Me series, starting with God Made All of Me by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb.
Arlo and the Great Big Cover-Up By Betsy Childs Howard
With easy-to-understand language and engaging images, this book shows children ages 3–7 the freedom that comes through confessing sin rather than trying to cover it up. During naptime, Arlo colors on his bedroom wall and then tries desperately to hide his disobedience from his mother. His efforts fail, but he discovers relief that comes when he finally confesses his sin. In the end, children will learn along with Arlo that although we cannot hide sin from God, confession opens the door to mercy and reconciliation.

This Is the Gospel: A Kids Read Truth Story & Scripture Book by She Reads Truth (Author), Amanda Bible Williams (Author), Raechel Myers (Author)
This Is the Gospel presents the story of God's love for us using story text and verses from scripture. From God's good creation to Adam and Eve's sin, Jesus's life, death and resurrection, the Holy Spirit's gift of faith and Jesus's return as King over all of creation, this is a great book to introduce the gospel to kids.
Seeds Family Worship
Seeds combines songs that use Scripture for lyrics with strongly produced music that is varied in style to create a sound the whole family will love. Each song helps a child (and any adults in the vicinity) memorize one or more Bible verses from the NIV. The music is not only enjoyable; we have found this to be the best tool to help families memorize God’s Word.
I AM Devotional: 100 Devotionals About the Names of God by Diane M. Stortz
Children will learn to trust God in everything as they learn about the names and character of God in the I Am Devotional. Through 100 devotions, children will see how God’s names reflect His love, strength, trustworthiness, etc., and what that means as they develop a strong faith.
