UBC's Kids Ministry has three goals: to show children who God is by demonstrate His amazing love, to lead them to grow in what they know about Jesus, and to provide support as they learn to show God's love to their families and communities.
At UBC, we have Family Worship at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary. Kids of all ages are welcome to attend with their families! We also provide Kid Connect where your kids can safely learn and play with friends during worship (see more info below). In order to provide adequate supervision for younger kids (Babies-Pre-Kindergarten), reservations must be made in advance each Sunday when you register for Family Worhsip.
Kid Connect is our preschool and children's Sunday school. Our lessons help children develop Bible skills, become comfortable with prayer, and learn more about Jesus.
In-person Lessons - Kids attend Kid Connect during the sermon portion of the 10:30 worship service. In-person lessons are available for babies-6th grade.
Virtual Zoom Lessons - Kids can join our in-person class virtually through Zoom, Sundays at 11:00. Contact April Lintz for meeting ID and password. Zoom lessons are only available for 1st-6th grade students.

Registering your child with UBC Kids will allow you to sign your children in and out of events and will help us communicate with you. UBC uses a student database and parent/teacher communication tool called Brightwheel to track attendance and message families.
Step 3 - Add your personal information to Brightwheel including:
profile photos for children, parents, and other approved pickups
and emergency contacts. Add additional approved pickups. Children will only be released to adults listed as approved pickups in Brightwheel.
You can see a Brightwheel video tutorial HERE!
Our check-in system increases security in our children's and preschool departments and streamlines attendance-taking for our teachers. Follow these instructions to make checking your children in to UBC as simple as possible:
1. When you arrive at church, you will check in your children (babies through 6th grade) on a tablet using an app called Brightwheel. Each parent will use their Pre-Registration with UBC Kids can speed this process. Check in stations are located on the preschool porch for babies - Pre-K or in the south foyer for school aged children.
2. Each child must be dropped off by a parent or a parent appointed adult. Children will not be admitted if they arrive alone.
3. Sunday Kid Connect Drop-off Times and Locations:
Babies - Pre-Kindergarten, 10:15 - 10:30 on the preschool porch, just off the circle drive on Wabash Avenue, under the arches on the East side of the church. This is the drop-off and pick-up location for preschoolers
School Aged Children - Sign-in will be at The south foyer, this is the main entrance to the church, on the South side of the building, on Cantey Street. Once children have been signed in to Kid Connect they will join their families in the sanctuary for congregational singing. During the service children will be called to the front to hear the children's message. After the children's message they will be dismissed to attend Kid Connect with teachers from the UBC Kids Ministry. Children will dismiss from the Preschool Playground. If the weather is poor we'll dismiss in the main hall on the first floor.
4. Your child will not be allowed into any event until there are two teachers present. The purpose of this rule is to protect children and teachers. Our teachers will do their best to be on time, but if you arrive and there is only one teacher present, you will be asked to stay until another teacher arrives.
