An absence of said notice and your presence and/or your child(ren)'s presence in Children's Ministry shall be considered agreement your and/or your child(ren) may be photographed and/or videotaped until such a notice is presented.


The unlimited rights of said photos and videos of all participants and attendees (including Parents, Guardians, and other visiting adults) permitted to be photographed and videotaped shall be retained by those who create such media for any purpose at any time without any further permission or notice needed by parties involved. No involuntary compensation shall be given to or expected by participants of Harvester's Children's Ministry or Harvester.


The primary purpose of said media shall be to present Children's Ministry activities to Harvester, Children's Ministry participants, and their families, as well as promote future events of Harvester's Children's Ministry, and represent Harvester in compliance with its mission to “Bring people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.” The main reason for this notice is to allow the photographer/ videographer to share their pictures, individually and collectively with participating families and Harvester freely, and further enhance the Children's Ministry experience for those involved.

It is your understanding that Harvester's Staff or designated volunteer(s) will attempt to notify you in case of a medical emergency involving your child. 

 

If the church (staff, leadership, designated volunteers) cannot reach you, then you authorize the church to hire a doctor or health-care professional, and you give your permission to the doctor or other health-care professional, to provide the medical services he or she may deem necessary.  You agree to pay for any medical expenses incurred.

The terms of this agreement shall only apply to regular Children's Ministry events not requiring a separate registration (i.e. Children's Christmas Experience or Vacation Bible School).


In the absence of a new registration for future school years, the conditions of this notice shall remain in effect until such registration is received.
