December 2nd, 2017
PARENTS, REGISTER YOUR KIDS TODAY TO ATTEND! Christmas J.A.M. is for kids 4 years old through 6th grade! Games, crafts, snacks, and a live drama! The morning is similar to VBS, but it’s all Christmas!
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR? Casual attire is best (jeans, t-shirts) with close-toed shoes (tennis shoes preferred). Your child will have a game time and they will need to be comfortably dressed. Also, sometimes crafts can get a little messy, so wear something that you don’t mind getting dirty.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING? As little as possible. They will be moving from room to room, and unnecessary stuff can get lost easily.
WHAT TYPES OF SNACKS WILL YOU SERVE:
- Sugar Cookies (Ingredients include: butter, sugar, eggs, flour, powdered sugar, sour cream)
- Icing (Ingredients include: powdered sugar and vanilla)
- Optional decorating item: Sprinkles
- Country Time Lemonade (Ingredients include: Sugar, Fructose, Citric Acid)
HOW WILL MY CHILD'S FOOD ALLERGIES BE HANDLED? Make sure you indicate any allergies on your child’s registration form. Rice Chex will also be offered as an alternative. If what we provide doesn’t work for your child, you are welcome to send a snack with your child. Please give it to your child’s group leader at drop-off.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT GROUP/CLASS MY CHILD WILL BE IN? We assign kids to a group by age/grade.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY CHILD IS PRE-REGISTERED? You will receive a confirmation email. Unfortunately, spam filters can catch these emails, so please check your spam filter and add registrations@planning centeronline.com to your safe senders list. If you don’t receive an email, please contact us at email@example.com to verify whether we have received your child’s registration.
WHEN IS THE CUT-OFF DATE AND TIME FOR PRE-REGISTRATION? Pre-registration ends at noon, December 2nd. However, you can still come to Christmas J.A.M. and register your child for the event.
CAN MY CHILD BE IN A GROUP WITH A FRIEND? We try to honor requests for your child to be with their friends. All our games, crafts and lessons are geared towards specific ages, so if there is a large age gap between children (more than 1 grade) we would ask that your child stays in their age appropriate group.
MY CHILD IS ALMOST FOUR, WHAT IS YOUR CUT-OFF AGE? If your child turns four on or before December 3rd, the date of Christmas J.A.M., he/she can attend.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I BRING MY CHILD? Our Opening session starts at 9:30am, so you can start checking in your children at 9:15am. If you haven’t pre-registered your children, it will take a little longer to get checked in, so be sure you arrive in time for them to get checked in for our Opening. Your kids won’t want to miss it!
HOW DO I PICK UP MY CHILD?
Please park and come in to pick up your child(ren) from the Sanctuary. If you must pick up your child before they come back for the Closing in the Sanctuary, you must stop by the Registration Desk and the volunteers there will locate your child and bring him/her to the desk.
**You must bring your security tag that you received when checking in your child(ren), show it to each child’s group leader and he/she will verify that the child’s number matches your number before releasing your child. You will also need to sign out your child, too, on the group leader’s attendance form.
IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT LOSING YOUR COPY OF THE SECURITY TAG:
The tag is a sticker so you can stick it to your shirt so that it’s less likely to get lost
Or, if you have a smart phone you can take a picture of the tag and show that to your child’s group leader.
If you lost your security tag or someone else comes to pick up your child without a tag, that person will be asked to sit in the lobby area until most, if not all, of the other children have been picked up, then the J.A.M. Studio Kids Director will verify that the child(ren) can be released to that person.
WHAT IS SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME IS PICKING UP MY CHILD? Please let your child’s leader know at drop-off if someone other than you will be picking up your child. You can either give the person who will pick up your child your security tag, or send them a photo of it.
IS THERE A COST? No - we are excited to offer this event for free to any kids in our community!
December 2nd - December 3rd, 2017

High School Seniors...We're headed to Passion 2018!
PASSION IS MORE THAN A CONFERENCE, PASSION EXISTS TO SEE A GENERATION LEVERAGE THEIR LIVES FOR WHAT MATTERS MOST... To live in such a way that their journey on earth counts for what is most important in the end. For us at Passion, that's the fame of the One who rescues and restores, and the privilege we have to amplify His name in everything we do.
Passion is more than a conference. More than an event. More than a feeling. Passion is you and me saying goodbye to lesser things and saying yes to Jesus, the One whose name is above every name.
