Attending Church During COVID-19
#1. IS IT A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR MY CHILD?
We love all kids at Harvest.
During this time, due to government regulations, we are not able to offer a separate program for children
What do we have?
Special seating in service for families with children.
Free colouring pages and crayons will be given to children as they enter.
Please feel free to bring quiet books or download children’s videos with headphones for your child in service .
At the end of service we will be giving all kids a freezie!
The good news is children will be able to enjoy the music and family experience.
NOTE: Please contact us if you would like any suggestions for children’s downloads.
