“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” - Proverbs 22:6
Sunday Mornings Classes and childcare
Time: 8:45 and 10:30 a.m.
Location: Ministry Center (Nursery 0-2) and the Learning Center (age 2-grade 5).
Description: We welcome your family! While you’re in “big” church, the children connect with Jesus in a meaningful, age-appropriate way as they worship and learn together! If you are a first-time visitor, not a problem. We’ll help you get to where you and your family need to go on Sunday morning.
About Safety: We are set up in both the Ministry Center on the concourse level and the Learning Center on the first floor with computer check-in. The nursery is staffed with paid childcare workers who are trained and screened appropriately. All teachers, paid childcare staff, volunteers, and assistants are trained and screened individuals and are competent to care for and love children. To ensure your child’s safety, we run criminal and sex offender background checks (over age 18), perform face-to-face interviews, check references, and every worker attends “Safeguarding God’s Children Training” every two years.
ways to get involved
Join the Sunday morning teaching team: Small group leaders/teachers for Sunday mornings are committed to sharing the love of Jesus with children grades K-5. If you wish to serve, you will be paired with another adult to lead an age level group of children every week. Christ centered curriculum is provided along with supplies to enhance the lesson. Your class will be paired with a prayer partner to cover you and your children each week in prayer. Imparting God’s word to children is a calling that God will bless now and in the years to come. To be a part of this team contact Heather Glyer.
Nursery co-op: Our nursery is a nursery co-op, which means families using the nursery take turns working in the nursery. Both parents are expected to serve when placed on a team. Teams typically serve once every 5-7 weeks. Once registered, you will receive information from Carly Smith, the nursery registrar, and Laurie Harmer, the nursery director. Serving in the nursery is a blessing. You have the unique opportunity to get to know other families with children the same age as your child. You will bond with children and their families. Who knows, you may even meet your child’s future in-laws!
Guild of the Christ Child: The guild is made up of volunteer church members who want to support families who are pregnant, adopting, fostering, and who have just had a baby. We have volunteers who pray for expecting and new parents, as well as for those suffering because of infertility, miscarriage, abortion, illness or other needs. When new babies are born the Guild offers meals, prayer, and a visit when possible. Other services connected with the Guild are the "Babes with Babes" Bible study that meets on Thursday mornings, and a Thursday evening working moms group. Please contact Laurie Harmer if you are pregnant, adopting, or have a foster baby. We want to support you.
