As such we place a high priority on providing superior care while also introducing children to the unconditional love of Jesus Christ. Classrooms are available for infants through fourth grade at each of our regular Sunday morning worship services.  We have trained and pre-screened volunteers that introduce the concepts and stories of the Bible, and the love of God.

Our Mission: To make disciples of children.

Our Vision: To teach God’s love to children in a safe caring environment.

Nursery through kindergarten age children learn about Jesus through music, crafts, stories, and discussion time relevant to their age group. The 1st-4th graders learn the basics of the Bible such as how it is organized, how to find a Bible verse, and ultimately how to apply scripture to their own lives. They also focus on developing friendships within the classroom by playing “Get to Know You” games every week so that no child ever feels like the the new kid, even if it is their first day.

You can rest assured that your child will be well cared for and will have a great time!

 

 

 

 

 

Nursery/Toddler facilities will be open 15 minutes prior to regular church services and close approximately 15 minutes after church services.

TEST – A parent should call for the child immediately following the service or function. It is suggested that only one parent call for their child.

Separation from a parent can sometimes be traumatic for a child. We ask that you not “look in” on your child once you have dropped them off. If you would like to drop in, please see a teacher or staff member who would be happy to assist you in “looking in”.  If we can not soothe your child within 10 minutes we will post your claim number on the screen during church service.

All nursery age children must be signed into their rooms and labeled by their parent or adult guardian. A name-tag must be placed on the child and the parent will retain a claim ticket. Children will only be released to the parent with a corresponding number.

Diaper bags, clothing and other personal items must be labeled with the child’s first and last name.
Suggested diaper bag contents:

  • Extra diapers (disposable preferred)
  • Change of clothes
  • One or two bottles as needed
  • Pacifier (if necessary)
  • Wipes
  • Your child’s favorite “security” item (e.g., blanket, toy, rattle, etc.)

Toddler age children undergoing potty training should have with them a change of clothing in a labeled bag. Please place a “Potty Training” sticker on your child and notify the teacher.  The teacher will know to ask the child if they need to use the bathroom.
If your child has a food allergy or a special need, please place a “Food Allergy or Special Need” sticker on your child and notify the teacher.

The nursery teachers will only feed babies their bottle or a “sippy cup” that the parent provided. Older babies and toddlers will be offered a light snack during services and functions. A listing of snacks will be available at your child’s room.

Toys are wiped down with antibacterial wipes after each service.

For the health of all children and volunteers, children with symptoms of: a fever, has a runny nose that is not clear, a contagious rash, diarrhea, or has vomited within the last 24 hours, should not be brought to classes or group activities.  Although we still love sick kids, we cannot let them in class.

Please contact our Children’s Ministry Director, Wendy Lopp, prior to donating toys to the Children’s Ministry.
