We believe McLane Church exists to eliminate barriers to give people access to Christ. We focus our efforts on two primary environments to make that happen, weekend worship and small groups. In both ancient times (recorded in the Older Testament of the Bible) and in the early church (recorded in the Newer Testament book of Acts) we see that God organized His church through both of these environments.
We understand that the expenses of childcare can be a deterrent to participating in a McLane small group. Because we are committed to removing as many barriers as possible, the church reimburses group participants at a predetermined rate for their childcare expenses, if needed. The goal of our childcare reimbursement ministry is to help members and regular attenders of McLane Church engage in a McLane small group. If you do not have a church home, we invite you to join McLane Church.
Below is the reimbursement schedule for two options, a family childcare option and a group option. If you are a McLane Church attendee or do not attend church at this time, and would like to sign up for reimbursement of either option, please fill out the form below. After submitting the form, you should receive an email within three to five business days containing further instructions, including your login information and how to request reimbursement each week
Family Childcare Reimbursement Schedule
Family option: A reimbursement for families whose childcare is provided in their individual homes, apart from the group at a rate of $8/hour for up to 3 hours for each small group gathering. Parents use their own trusted childcare provider and we will reimburse payment at the set determined rate.
Group Childcare Reimbursement Schedule
Group option: We reimburse only one parent from the group at the predetermined rate of $10/hour per childcare provider up to the ratio of:
1 Adult to 3 Children: Infant-3 years of age
1 Adult to 8 Children: 4-12 years of age
up to 3 hours for each small group gathering. The group is responsible to find a trusted childcare provider.

The money for this ministry comes from the generous tithes and offerings of McLane attendees. It is possible that at some point in the future we will find it necessary to adjust, suspend, or discontinue this financial assistance due to circumstances.
