It is a joy to provide loving and nurturing childcare to our members, friends, and visitors. Our goal is to take great care of your children and their needs in a way that helps them feel comfortable and happy so that you may worship without worry or concern.
The nursery is located on the first floor of our Avon Wing. You will see room assignments signage when you enter the nursery, and this will help you easily find your child's room. The children are divided by ability/birthday, so your child will be with other children his or her age.
Our fully-staffed nursery serves infants through preschool-age children during Sunday morning services and Sunday evening worship services. This very nurturing environment has a dedicated nursery staff who are highly trained and supervised and who give loving care and attention to all of our little ones. The nursery rooms are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly to help ensure each child’s health and safety.
The Nursery & Preschool Ministry provides a year-round Sunday School program led by volunteer church members that begin teaching children when they turn 18 months old. The core of the children’s Bible learning, where the children are taught simple biblical truths, occurs during the Sunday School hour (9:45 to 10:45 a.m.).

While moms attend the Women's Ministry Bible Study on Tuesday mornings (9:30-11:30 a.m.), childcare is provided to children ages birth to five years old. Children who are three (by September 1, 2022), four and five years old participate in the Tuesday Bible Study for Children. This is a special time for this age group when they are taught a Bible lesson; make a craft that reinforces the lesson; and enjoy music, a snack, and playtime. This ministry is led by wonderful, dedicated member volunteers.
Nursery care is available during all Wednesday evening dinners, Bible Studies, and special Wednesday night programs. Children who are three, four and five years old participate in Blast Beginnings, in which they receive catechism and choir instruction in the nursery conducted by volunteer adult choir members and ministry staff. The children may participate in a Christmas program and a Spring program. A six-week Early Childhood Music Program is offered to toddlers ages 18 months to three years old as an introduction to music and choir. Both of these choir programs occur during the school year.

On Thursday mornings October 6-27 at 9:30, children and their caregivers gather for a time of stories read aloud, singing, and crafting. The hour is designed for fun, learning, and community amongst toddlers and preschoolers as well as their parents. Reservations not required. Must be accompanied by parent/caregiver. Ages 5 and under, siblings welcome!
Throughout the year, we have special events for nursery and preschool families. These are opportunities to spend some quality time with your little one and your church community. Past events have included blueberry picking, pool parties, art day, science day and many others.
