Children’s Sunday Morning Ministries

Nursery (Room 103)

Our nursery is open every Sunday for worship services and Sunday school, and Wednesday evenings during First Fellowship, and for special church events as announced. Located on the first floor in room 103. The nursery opens fifteen minutes before an event and remains open for the duration of the activity.

All nursery staff workers receive special training, background screening, and pediatric CPR certification prior to working in our nursery.

Children’s Worship Opportunities

During worship services, children are invited to participate in the Children’s Minute. The Children’s Minute is a special spiritual message during the church hour directed at our youngest members. At the conclusion of the Children’s Minute, children who are 3-years old (potty-trained) through 2nd grade may either return to their parents in the service or leave the service for Children’s Church activities in (Room 215) in the children’s wing.
