The Gate / Van Program Policies

                     The Gate / Van Program Policies

📣 Attention all parents and guardians! The Gate Kids Ministry is not only an exciting adventure but also a privilege extended to children and youth in the Williams Valley Area. We kindly ask that your children understand and respect the following policies to ensure the safety and smooth operation of The Gate Ministry and transportation to and from Twin Valley Alliance Church. Please take a moment to discuss these guidelines with your kids.


Transportation Guidelines: 🚐 Riding the Church vans is a privilege that comes with responsibilities. 🚫 Children/youth should not disrupt the safe operation of The Gate Ministry or Church vans. 🗣️ Conversations about respectful behavior and cooperation with van drivers and helpers are encouraged.

Disciplinary Infractions on the Church van include but are not limited to:

  1. Not following instructions from the van driver or helper.

  2. Remaining seated and facing forward while the van is in motion.

  3. Avoid littering or throwing items inside or out of the van.

  4. No fighting, bullying, or any form of physical altercation.

  5. Maintain a peaceful environment; avoid yelling or unnecessary noise.

  6. Please refrain from eating or drinking in the van.

  7. Using inappropriate language is not allowed.

  8. Any form of property damage is strictly prohibited.


Conduct Expectations at The Gate include, but are not limited to:

  1. Treat others with respect: no swearing, fighting, bullying, hitting, or pushing.

  2. Care for Twin Valley Alliance Church property and prevent destruction.

  3. Running indoors is only permissible during designated games/events.


In case of disobedience: 📝 If a child/youth fails to follow church/van rules, the incident will be documented, and parents will be informed as appropriate. ⚖️ Consequences will match the severity and frequency of the misconduct. 🚫 Repeated or serious misconduct might lead to the suspension of van or Gate attendance privileges.


Home Pickup for Misconduct: 🏠 In severe cases where misconduct requires a child's departure, parents/guardians will be contacted and expected to pick up the child/youth.


Our shared effort ensures a safe, respectful, and enriching experience at The Gate Kids Ministry. Thank you for your cooperation!
