At Restoration Southside, we wish for our children to feel valued, know that they are an important part of the church, and witness Jesus reflected in what they see, in what they hear, and in the people that serve them. The mission of our Children’s Ministry is to create an environment for the children in our church that is safe, fun and imitates the larger body of Christ in every way possible. Our hope for parents is that they will know that their children are safe and loved. Our goal for volunteers is that they can use their gifts and have the opportunity to connect with children and families in the church.

Kiddos are just as much a part of our community as everyone else. Jesus said, “let the little children come to me.” And we will constantly bring the little ones to Jesus.

First step is to email Caitlyn Whitted at: with the following information:

All volunteers will be be trained in our Child Protection Policy and will be background checked. We have a nursery area that is fully secure: it is obvious to all that only approved volunteers, parents, and children are allowed in that space. This will be done partly by having nursery volunteers where a Restoration Kiddos t-shirt, so that all parents, visiting or members will know who is caring for their children during the service. Doors will be locked and their will be a special volunteer monitoring the hallway. Check-in: Will be at the front of the children's space via an ipad or computer. Children will receive a printed nametag. (More info will come as we further understand how CCB operates with check-in).

We can't tell you how much it means to be able to worship and fellowship on Sundays knowing that our children are being cared for and loved on, growing their own friendships and learning about the love of God for them.
