Jesus said, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me.
Our nursery ministry consists of babies and toddlers three years old and younger. We strive to meet the needs of each child that enters our doors.
1. How do I check in my child?
To check in your child, walk up to the kiosk. There will be a check in member waiting to assist you. If you’re a first time guest, you will be asked to fill out your information on the kiosk. Upon your next visit you will be listed in our database by last name when checking in with check in member at kiosk. Name badge will be printed and placed on your child, which includes name, code, contact and allergies. You will receive a sticker and it includes identical code which matches your child’s name badge code. Your child’s name/code will appear on screen in sanctuary if you are needed for any reason. You will also need your sticker with your child’s matching code upon pick up at the end of each service.
2. If I have a child in nursery, what should I pack for them?
Pacifier or other items should your child need. A bottle of milk or formula. (please pre-mix and label all items brought in nursery)
NOTE: we do not change any diapers or assist/ take toddlers to the restrooms. We advise a diaper check/ taking toddler to the restroom prior to leaving your child in nursery. Parents will be notified if there is a need to do a diaper change or restroom break.
3. When should I keep my child home/out of Nursery?
We strive to keep our nursery clean and safe. In order to do this please DO NOT bring your child into the nursery with any of the following symptoms:
Fever of 100 degrees or above

5. If my child/ baby is upset, gets injured or needs me, will I be contacted?
If your child /baby is upset or needs you for any reason, we will put their name/code on screen in the sanctuary. This will notify you immediately to come to see your child in the nursery.

Yes. We are dedicated to providing a safe environment for babies/children with loving, caring, adults. Each of our volunteers completes an application, interview and passed a background check.
