Our mission is Helping Kids Know Jesus and Make Him Known.

Hey CornerKids Families!

We’re excited to offer CornerKids Ministry during 9:30am services at all Cornerstone Campuses starting Sunday, September 13!

If you and your family are continuing to worship with us online, we’ll provide weekend lessons, videos, and devotions for your child! You’ll find them on the CornerKids Facebook page: CornerKids @ Cornerstone Church and on the MEGA Kids Camp Cornerstone Church Facebook page.

Please Note! No CornerKids on November 29!

In order to give our volunteers time with their families, we will not be offering CornerKids at our Campuses on November 29, the weekend after Thanksgiving. Enjoy the Holiday Weekend!

CornerKids In Person

  • You’ll be required to PRE-REGISTER your kids, and classroom numbers are being limited to 10 children, with the exception of 4/5 Preteen at the 84th Campus, where more than 10 kids will be allowed.
  • ALL children must be pre-registered by filling out an RSVP form (See Below).
  • RSVP forms will be available Monday through Wednesday to register for the upcoming Sunday.
  • You may see other RSVP forms listed for weeks in the future; however the only form that will be active is the one for the upcoming Sunday.
  • If your child’s classroom is grayed out on the form, or you’re unable to fill out that part of the form, that classroom is full.
  • If when you go to RSVP, you see this message or something similar: “We’re Sorry… This form has expired…” that means all classes are full.
  • Please worship from home if you, your child or anyone in your home has had a fever in the past 14 days, shows any symptoms of COVID-19, or has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Some symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, fatigue, diarrhea, rash, sore throat, runny nose, loss of taste and smell.

In-Person Safety Precautions & Guidelines

We’re taking additional steps to keep the CornerKids environments safe (and fun) for your family. And be ready for a redesigned check-in!

  • Every Staff member and volunteer will have their temperature taken before the check-in process can begin, and they’ll be required to wear a mask or face shield for kids safety as well as their own.
  • We aren’t able to check-in anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, who has nasal discharge of any color, any form of cough, or any rash. Volunteers will also be asked health screening questions. 
  • Touch-free check-in for volunteers and kids.  A CornerKids team member will take Volunteers temperatures and help direct volunteers and families where to go.
  • Check-in stickers will be waiting for you in your child’s classroom. One sticker will still go on your child, one will go in the check-in book, and you will be handed the claim ticket for pick-up.
  • To minimize traffic, be prepared for a re-designed drop-off and pick-up process, such as one-way entrance and exits to encourage physical distancing.
  • Only one parent will be permitted into the CornerKids area for Drop-off and Pick-up to help limit hallway traffic. Parents dropping-off and picking-up are required to wear a facemask while in hallways and common spaces.
  • Please have your child use the restroom and thoroughly wash their hands or use sanitizer before starting the check-in process. Extra hand sanitization stations will be posted at the entrances to CornerKids.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged for kids to use during worship singing.

We still want this to be a fun and encouraging experience for your kids, so you will see lots of big waves and friendly masked faces, but let’s avoid hugs, high-fives, and handshakes.

Specific Safety Guidelines For Your Child’s Classroom

In addition to the redesigned check-in process, we’re taking extra care inside each room, too!

  • There will be a used toy bin in each room. Volunteers will place toys that have been in children’s mouths into these bins to provide additional sanitization.
  • It is our goal to provide 1-2 care in our Infant & Walkers room. Meaning the volunteer who you drop your child off with will be the only one interacting with your child the entire hour.
  • We will be accepting very limited items into the rooms with kids in order to maintain a safe environment. One pre-made and labeled bottle per child and one diaper will be allowed in the room.
  • A car seat may be left in the preschool square.
  • We are unable to have any diaper bags in rooms during this phase and ask parents to please take them with you.

Cornerstone's Family Framework

We Love and Support Your Family!

Your son or daughter (or grandchild or student) is in a phase of life, whether they’re a toddler, a seventh-grader or a senior in high school. Each Phase has specific moments to celebrate, and we call them Milestones. Each milestone is a part of our Family Framework.

Additional Information / FAQ

Special Needs classes are offered for CornerKids at the 84th St. Campus in room S213 during the 9:30am Sunday service. Web pre-registration is required.

Our goal is to provide a safe, loving and enjoyable environment that meets the physical, emotional and spiritual need of every child. We work with your family to meet the specific needs of your son or daughter.

We follow the preschool curriculum and adapt it to fit the needs of your child. The three main truths we would like every child to learn are:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus wants to be my Friend Forever

These truths come alive through Bible stories, hands-on activities, crafts, and worship through music! If a child is unable to sit through structured activities, the volunteers will reinforce these truths through play.

If you have any questions, please email Bethann Fernandez.

Registration

Please click the link below to register your child for CornerKids Special Needs. If you fill this out by the Wednesday before you plan to attend, then your child’s information will be in our system. If you fill this out after Wednesday, please print a copy of your confirmation email so we may more quickly enter your child(ren) in our system.

Register for Special Needs

The safety of your child(ren) in CornerKids is a top priority. Our child safety procedures are designed to keep our kids ministries areas secure, especially during drop-off and pick-up.

Check-in Procedure

You'll use a touch screen monitor to check-in your children. The check-in system will produce a name badge for your child, and a claim ticket for you (the parent/guardian).

Check-in is as simple as entering your phone number starting with the area code and it will bring up your family. You then click on the names of your child(ren). If you need help, someone will be available to help you. Once you're entered in the system, we can send you a *text message if you are needed during the service, and your claim ticket number will be placed on the main screen in the Worship Center.

Check-out Procedure

You must present your claim ticket to pick up your child. This is vital to the safety of the kids. Children will only be dismissed to their parent/guardian who shows the claim ticket that was issued to them at check- in.

*If you are needed during the service, we will text you, or your child's security number will be placed on the main screen in the service. When you receive a text or see a notification on the screen, please go to the CornerKids Check-In desk and the volunteer will let you in to pick up your child.

Kids are cared for by small group leaders that are trained and background checked.  Kids spend 5-10 minutes in their classrooms doing an opening activity, and then have a large group time with worship and Bible storytelling or the Bible story on video. Kids return to their classrooms for a time in small groups connecting the Bible story in relevant ways through discussion, games and fun activities.

Thank you for your interest in serving in CornerKids! The first step is to fill out our CornerKids volunteer form. Someone from our CornerKids onboarding team will contact you from there.

The short answer is yes. Please see our baptism brochure for more on why we baptize and what that means in the United Methodist Church. You can also visit our baptism page for more information on upcoming baptism celebrations.
