NEW PREREGISTRATION/PRECHECK-IN PROCESS
In an ongoing effort to make the preregistration and check-in process for Children’s Ministry easier and more efficient, we are switching to Planning Center Registrations as the software for reserving spots for your children in our weekend ministries. Follow the on-screen prompts when you click the button below. This will preregister your children. When you arrive for ministry, you will still need to check them into their classrooms and receive name tags for them. You can simply go to the nearest kids’ check-in desk and a volunteer will assist you.
If you prefer to streamline the process further, you can preregister AND precheck-in using the Church Center app on your mobile device. Simply download the app HERE, open it on your device, click on “Events” in the menu bar to preregister during the week. Then the day of your chosen worship service, open the Church Center app, click on “Checkin” in the menu bar to precheck into ministry. It will generate a QR code that can be scanned at any kids’ check-in desk to print name tags and pickup slips. Questions??? Email firstname.lastname@example.org

At Plymouth Covenant Church,
we love kids!
We want children to come to know and love Jesus in a life-changing way. Our ministries are staffed with people who are passionate about coming alongside kids and families as they discover who Jesus is. We will do everything we can to ensure that all children feel welcome and safe as they experience the love of Jesus while in our care.
Want to know what things will look like when you come back to church? Watch the video above and our Children’s Ministry Team will show you!
We continue to enjoy gathering in person for our early childhood and our elementary ministries! We are still limited by capacity in our ministry spaces (50%) so please keep remembering to register your kids each week to secure your spot(s). Click the button above to register.
