 NURSERY MINISTRY

As a church we exist to place the heart of God in the hearts of people. Our nursery ministry seeks to fulfill this mission by showing your child God's love through our care of them while they are with us. We believe children truly are a gift from God. If you have any concerns while your child is in our care, please let us know.

The following information is meant to make your initial visit to our church a good experience.

Policies

Each child will be changed at least once during each service. If he/she attends Sunday School, he/she will be changed during both the Sunday School and worship time. Please make sure you provide enough diapers.
 

We ask each parent to complete an instruction form and keep it in your baby's bag. This enables us to know any specific instructions for feeding your child and any other areas of care, such as food allergies. We attempt to follow your  instructions to the best of our ability.

If your child becomes inconsolable during the service, you will be contacted either in person or during the worship service by the numerical display box. Your child will be assigned a number upon registering in the nursery. In the event you are needed, that number will appear on the display box. A display box is located above each of the doors to the side of the stage area. 

Our nursery volunteers are adults and teens (9th grade and up). Teens are assigned positions with adult supervision. Should you ever find your child left alone with a teen, please notify the church office. We attempt to make every effort to assure this does not occur.

It is a good idea to send a change of clothes even for two- and three-year-old toddlers. Accidents happen, and it is good to have a change for them.

Security Measures

 Please cooperate with us in the following security system of signing your children in and out each time you attend. This insures that you and only you will be able to pick up your child. It is NOT our policy to allow children to pick up their siblings. Adults without a child's tag will not be allowed to remove a child from the children's area. If someone other than yourself will be picking up your child on a given Sunday, this information should be submitted to the children's worker in writing; the person you have designated to pick up your child MUST present your child's tag at the time of pick-up.

  • Always sign your child in and get a tag with your number on it.
  • Label all of your children's belongings. This helps us be certain that only your child will get what is in his/her bag.
  • We ask that only one parent drop off and pick up the child. This eliminates crowding in the hallway.
  • It is extremely helpful if you do not visit your child between services. Having to say only one "goodbye" is helpful to young ones who struggle with separation anxiety.
  • Please come and pick up your child as soon as the service is over. Children who see other children's parents coming for their children often get anxious for their parents.
  • Complete a baby care card for each service and place it in the diaper bag.. This will help eliminate confusion about specific instructions for your child.
  • NEVER bring a sick child to the nursery. We take every precaution to keep our children healthy and the environment as germ free as possible. Please follow the 24 hour rule if your child has had a fever. Wait 24 hours after your child's fever has broken before bringing your child out in a public setting.
