The nursery is available to children from 0-2 years of age. The volunteer nursery staff provide safe and gentle care while taking advantage of the opportunity to teach babies and toddlers through associations and feelings that later develop into concepts and attitudes about God. They are introduced to simple songs and Bible stories.
When a child becomes a regular attendee, the parents will be asked to serve on the nursery team once a month. They join other volunteers and the nursery coordinators who provide a wonderful first-church experience for these precious little ones.
The nursery is available for all Sunday Services and special events, as announced.
During the morning Worship Service, the Preschool children who are 3-4 years of age have their own Sunday School time in the nursery department. We use the David C. Cook Sunday School curriculum.
Research indicates that by the time children are ready for Kindergarten their basic attitudes and habits are formed for life. Therefore we take our ministry to two, three, four and five year olds very seriously.
We believe in building a solid spiritual foundation through songs, stories and a variety of learning experiences. Our goal with our children is to help them know our Lord Jesus Christ and to learn how to apply God’s Word to their daily lives.
Our Children’s Church program is for children age five through the sixth grade. Children join the adults for the first part of the worship service and are dismissed after the opening songs and offering. On the last Sunday of each month, families worship together for the entire worship service.
On the Sundays that the children remain in the worship service, our pastor gives a children’s message prior to the sermon, and (at parent’s discretion) they are allowed to participate in communion observances.
The Children’s Church service includes singing, Bible lessons and memorization, an offering, along with prayer, songs, stories, and a smattering of videos, games & crafts. We are privileged to have Tee and Yulia Swan as directors of this ministry.
Goals of the Children’s Church Ministry:
- Each child comes to know Jesus Christ as Savior
- Each child grows to love God’s Word
- Each child desires to pray for others and for one another in the class
- Each child desires to give to the Lord’s work
- Each child exhibits God’s character in their daily lives
