Nursery Ministry

We strive to minister God’s love to our little ones and their families by providing a safe and loving environment for our children. We do this through loving interaction, maintaining health and safety standards, and praying for our children and families. We desire any child who is in our care to see church as a happy and loving place.

Our nursery ministry team works towards these goals each week by praying, planning Bible-based activities, loving children, and encouraging parents. Our goal is to provide a safe and loving environment for our programming to happen. Please partner with us to provide this environment by following sign-in and out procedures, informing us of any allergies or additional information, and labeling all personal items such as diaper bags, bottles, etc. If your child has any special needs, please let us know and we will be happy to work together in providing for your family. 

Health Policy
In order to ensure the safety and health of our children and staff, we kindly ask to refrain from bringing your child if they have had fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the past 24 hours. While your child is in our care, if they suddenly develop any of these symptoms, we will let you know immediately.

Sign in and out Procedures
In order for us to run an environment where visitors feel welcome and secure, we are asking that all children, birth through 5th grade, be signed in and out by a parent or guardian each time.Thank you so much for reminding and encouraging each other in this way.

Our Nursery Ministry Team
Our nursery ministry team consists of paid staff as well as volunteers. Our paid staff offers consistency in order to build relationships with our littlest ones and to maintain safety standards. We have a church-wide nursery rotation which is for all members in good standing who have been here at least six months. All diapering and special needs are taken care of by the paid staff enabling the volunteer to assume responsibilities like reading a story, building blocks, singing, rocking a baby, etc. The children receive the blessing of love and attention while our volunteers receive the blessing of getting to know these precious children. If you would like to be part of our ministry team, please contact Alisa Gillis.
