Children are a blessing from God. It is our goal to provide a safe, caring, and positive experience and volunteers are committed to ensure that this ministry brings Glory to God.
Nursery Staff and Volunteers
Our nursery staff and volunteers are screened and have been trained in the Child Protection Policy implemented by the United Methodist Conference. Nursery staff members are certified in CPR, are mature and responsible, and are actively involved with the children. We encourage and model positive behavior and try to make each child feel special.
Children are always welcome in the worship services. We also have a family room located in the lobby, just outside of the Sanctuary, in case you need privacy during the service. Families can view the service, with little ones, within a space designed just for them.
Child care is available for birth through 2 years old.
9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Worship Service
Child care is available for birth through 5th grade upon request.
Child care is available for children from birth through 5th grade for Wednesday evening Bible Studies.
Special Events, Classes, & Meetings
The nursery is also available, upon request, for adult education classes and ministry meetings. Requests must be made by the ministry leader or group facilitator two weeks in advance of the event. Requests are to be made in writing through the church office and approved by the Kids Ministry Director.
