    A safe and loving environment is the top priority of our Children’s Ministry at Athens First United Methodist Church. We use an electronic check-in system that provides an important level of security for children in our care. This complements the Safe Sanctuary procedures that we currently follow.

    Check-in and check-out is required each time your child attends a Children’s Ministry program (Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday evening or is in childcare for a special event). Our system is used for all children birth through grade 12.

    To Check In Your Child:

    Before dropping your child off he/she must be checked in using our KidCheck system and must have a KidCheck sticker on them.

    To Check Out Your Child:

    Have your KidCheck guardian sticker with you for pick up.

    Signing up for KidCheck is easy and free for parents. Once you've created your KidCheck account, you can add your children and other guardians. You can also upload photos of yourself, your kids, and your guardians to make it easy for your childcare provider to identify them.
