We believe children are uniquely special to God. The care, education, and protection of little children are an integral part of the church’s mission and identity. Our nursery exists to further display the love of Jesus for His people and for the world at large. Our goal is that children and their families will come to know more about Jesus and His love through this ministry.

Our Nursery Classes

  • Infants: 0-12 Months  Lobby Nursery, first room on right (Babies move up to Toddler I room when walking well.)  There is a room for nursing mothers and crying babies located at the back of the sanctuary, from which you can hear the worship service.
  • Toddler I: 12-18 Months  Lobby Nursery, second room on left (Move to this room from Infant room when walking well.)
  • Toddler II: 18-24 Months  Lobby Nursery, first room on left (Move to this room from Toddler I when 18 months.)
  • Two’s: Outside nursery, first classroom on the left (Children move from toddler room to 2’s on 2nd birthday.)
  • Three’s: Outside nursery, middle room (3 by 9/1)
  • PreK4: We have a Preparation for Worship class for our 4-year-olds as they transition from the nursery to the worship service. These children attend a portion of the service, then are dismissed during the hymn just before the sermon. This class meets in the Lower Warehouse. (4 by 9/1 and attending Kindergarten the following Fall.)
  • Kindergarten and up remain in the worship service.
