Nursery Services

Nursery care is available every Sunday during the morning worship service from 9:15-10:45 and during the evening worship service from 4:45-6:00. It is separated between infants, which includes newborns through crawlers, and toddlers, which includes walkers up to age three. Our nurseries are located to the east of the main entrance. A nursing and cry room is also available to the right of the nurseries.
 
We seek to provide a safe, clean, fun and loving environment where every child feels welcome. Our check-in system requires the parent/guardian of every child entering nursery to fill out a two-part sticker. One to stick to his/her belongings and the other for his/her back.  These indicate name, age, allergies, special instructions and a security number. Should your child need you during the service your security number will be displayed on the screens in the sanctuary.  This number will also match a bracelet which you will have received at check-in. Return your bracelet to check your child out of nursery.                 *All of our nursery volunteers have signed an abuse prevention form.*
 
There are cribs available should your child need a nap during the service and crackers and cheerios are also provided. If your child is potty training there is a bathroom available inside the nursery as well.   Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions.

Children's summer video ministry

Beginning with the end of the children's ministries in May we provide a short, Bible based movie for children ages 2-7. This begins following the children's message in the worship service. They are supervised while watching a short video and then play a game or use coloring pages until the end of the worship service.
