Need a night out but have no one to watch your kids? We are here to help! On Tuesday, February 14th, First Christian Church is offering free child care for kids ages 4-12 so that mom and dad can spend some time together. Throughout the night the kids will enjoy dinner, a movie, crafts, and age appropriate games and activities together in a safe, adult supervised environment. All this will take place from 5:30-8:30pm at the church Fellowship Hall at 312 South Main Avenue, Erwin, TN 37650.

Space is limited so register early by using our online registration form below or calling (423) 743-3811 during our normal office hours. You can also register on the day of the event when you drop off your children as long as space is still available.

This event is being coordinated by our Youth Minister, Andy Frazier, who has been serving kids in church ministry for over 14 years. The team of volunteers helping at the event are all church members, many of whom also have many years of experience as parents or in childcare work.
Yes! The safety of your children is our top priority. Throughout the night your kids will be closely supervised by responsible adults. The building will be secured, with only one entrance/exit unlocked and monitored throughout the night. We use a check-in/check-out system to ensure that only an approved person can pick up your children. In the unlikely event of an emergency with your child we are prepared to respond with basic First Aid, can provide quick and safe transportation to the local hospital (unless ambulance transportation is recommended), and you or your emergency contact will be contacted as soon as possible while an adult stays with your child at all times as allowed.
Besides your kids of course, we ask that you bring a completed permission form to speed up the check-in process. Though we are expecting all kids to be potty trained, we know accidents happen so you are welcome to bring a small bag with a change of clothes if you want.
Kids are expected to treat others as they want to be treated and respect the adults supervising them. In general, it will be a school-like environment and they should follow the basic rules of behavior expected there. Please do not allow your kids to bring things like mp3 players, video game systems, cell phones, or anything else that might distract from their participation with the group activities or could be broken or lost. If you have a specific question or concern feel free to contact us in advance or ask when you drop off your kids.
You may drop off and pick up your kids at any time between 5:30-8:30pm. In consideration of our volunteers and their families we ask that you not bring your children before 5:30pm or pick them up later than 8:30pm. In the event it becomes absolutely necessary, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
We thought this would be a great way to let you know how much we love and appreciate you and your family. Though we are offering this service to you for free with no expectation of getting anything in return, we do actually benefit from having an opportunity to meet and serve you and your family. If this service has been meaningful to you, we hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about our Lord Jesus Christ and invite you to visit a worship service to see how we may be able to serve your family in greater ways.
