Nursery

During our three Sunday Morning Worship Services (8:45a.m., 8:55a.m. & 11a.m.), we provide excellent care by trained Nursery Caregivers for children birth to Kindergarten age.
Age Location
Busy Bee Nursery: Newborn to 12 months B106 Bee Room (Sanctuary Bldg.)
Toddler Owls Nursery: 12–24 months B109 Owls Room (Sanctuary Bldg.)
2 Year Bunny Nursery & Sunday School C112 Bunny Room (Education Bldg.)
3 Year Nursery & Sunday School C110 Chimp Room (Education Bldg.)
4 & 5 Year Nursery & Sunday School C103 Kangaroom Room (Education Bldg.)

We do realize that small children mature differently; therefore, there is a little room for movement before the child reaches the 2-year-old class. At age 2 years (by September 1st, we would like for them to be with the correct age group so that they may grow up in the faith together and share similar experiences).

Little Church

After Children’s Moments during the 8:45, 8:55 and 11:00 am services, preschool children in Pre-K and Kindergarten are dismissed to the Kangaroo Room (Room C103 - downstairs, Education Building) where they have supervised fellowship and play time.

Please note that the classroom for 4 and 5 year olds is open ONLY during Little Church Sessions each Sunday.  Pre-K and Kindergartners are invited to attend any of our church services with their families until the children’s moment dismisses each week.  Church staff and volunteers will escort the children to Little Church following the Children’s Moment in each service. All children being dismissed for Nursery, Little Church and Children’s church must have an identification sticker from one of our kiosks.  Please make this a priority as it is for the safety of your children.

The Kangaroo classroom is closed from 10:00 until after the children’s moment in the sanctuary.  ALL children age Pre-K and above MUST be picked up from Sunday school by 10:50.

Our church nurseries are always available for children Age 3 (turning 4 after Sept 1) and younger.

Thank you for your cooperation.  Please enjoy your family’s time of worship together.

Please let us know if you have any questions about our nurseries or would like to get involved in Nursery Ministries.

Thank you,

Scheduling a Nursery

Use of the nursery facility must be approved by the Director of Nursery Ministries. When using the nursery, there must be at least two staff caregivers present, as we are a Safe Sanctuary Church. The child/caregiver ratio is based on age and will be determined by the Director of Nursery Ministries.

The use of the nursery should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the event. Groups requesting the nursery should do so by submitting a request form to the Director of Nursery Ministries. Download a Nursery Request Form.

If your event is not a church-sponsored function, the Director of Nursery Ministries will calculate the cost of the nursery care and provide you with an invoice.

Please contact me with any questions about booking a nursery or finding a Bible study that we have childcare available.

Blessings and thanks,

Julia Shod
