Nursery Ministry

The purpose of the church nursery ministry is to provide a welcoming, nurturing atmosphere for the nursery age children of our members and visitors, which honors the Lord and supports the parents in the care and education of their children, in a consistently safe, clean and wholesome facility through a caring, qualified, and motivated nursery staff.

Nursery MinistryIn our Nursery, our Sunday School classes study the curriculum of Great Commission Publications called “Show Me Jesus”. Teaching our two and three year olds to know that Jesus is God’s Son, to thank him for all our blessings, and to follow Jesus by loving Him are just some of our aims in the Nursery Ministry.

A monitor is also available upon request to monitor the sermon while feeding. Stop at the Nursery Station to enter the Nursing Room.

Our Nursery Ministry Goal

To trust the Lord Jesus Christ in providing for the nursery ministry. Childcare is what we do, but biblically we provide consistent opportunities for parents to know and grow in their knowledge of Jesus as their Lord and Nursery Ministry VolunteersSavior. We provide opportunities for whole families to serve the Lord in a playful, fun way, and therefore they model being the Lord’s servants to the Nursery children. Most importantly, we teach our covenant children to pray, to sing, and learn about God and His Son using the Great Commission Publication, “Show Me Jesus” curriculum for the two and three year olds.

Volunteers

Psalm 143:10a says, “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.” Serving the Lord in the Nursery Ministry is a wonderful example to our covenant children. They learn more from our actions than from our words. Be aNursery Ministry Goal volunteer and we will schedule you only one Sunday every 6 to 8 weeks. Your reward may come immediately from cuddly hugs and snugly friends to read to and you will be rewarded knowing that you have touched a life for eternity! Please feel free to fill out a Nursery Volunteer Response Card located in the pew rack and place it in the offering plate.

Watch for a Nursery Volunteer Training Session twice a year on a Wednesday at 5:30 to 6:30 in the Nursery Resource Room. Pizza, sodas and other refreshments will be served. If you are 10, or older, you need to attend our training class. Please email or call Jennifer Nichols to reserve your place.
