Jesus said: 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these'.
— Matthew 19:14

We are committed to providing a safe, clean, loving environment for babies, toddlers and 2-year-olds while presenting Jesus' love through trained, loving caregivers.


Blue Room Infants 6 weeks through 18 months
This area is a place for babies to explore safely.

Green Room Approximately 18 months to 35 months
This class prepares toddlers for the preschool class. They learn about God's love and love for others.

Children are promoted as necessary during the year.


Our first priority is the safety of each child as well as a sincere desire to lovingly nurture and carefully instruct. For the safety of the children, we adhere to the following worker/child ratios:

  • One worker per six (6) children in the toddler nurseries
  • One worker per four (4) children in the infant nursery
  • It is our policy that a minimum of two (2) workers be in each nursery room at all times.
  • You will receive a Parent Pager so that you can be notified during the Worship Service or Small Group hour in the event of an emergency or difficulty. In order to keep our children healthy and well, we also ask that no child be brought to the Nursery who is ill. If your child becomes ill while in the Nursery, you will be contacted via the Parent Pager system.

Things to Know

  • Snacks are served in Nursery. If your child has food allergies, please inform the Nursery Receptionist at check-in.
  • Please be sure to include in your diaper bag 2 disposable diapers, a bottle or sippy cup, a bib or cup cloth, a change of clothes, a pacifier, and if needed some baby wipes with all items marked with your child's name.
  • For comfort and convenience, we have a Family Comfort room located next to the Nursery room where infants may be fed and their special needs tended to. In this room you can keep your child with you and enjoy the service at the same time.

Some think that content must be large in order for the message of the Gospel to be shared, but that's not true. The Good News is simple. Simple words and loving hands do great things! So with our 3- to 5-year-olds, we are dedicated to share God's love, model love and kindness to each other and help the children develop confidence in a God who loves them.
