All of our ministry programs and activities  are governed by Maywood's Child  Protection Policy which defines policies and procedures that ensure the protection and safety of children who  participate in Maywood events.  Personnel who have any contact with children are required to take a Child Protection Policy training class and submit a volunteer profile with references.  A criminal background check is performed on all workers, as well as driving background checks on those who may drive church vehicles.

One of the main focuses of Children's Ministries is to partner with parents/families to strengthen their faith in God in the home. One could expect to see activities such as Family Skate Nights, Film Nights, Grandparents' Night, and planned outings; all serving to encourage families to spend time together, living in the light of God's love, and practicing their Christian faith. Efforts are made to give families opportunities to serve together in the church and in the community.
