A staffed Nursery is available in the Bible Wonderland area on the lower level during the Sunday morning worship assembly for children from birth through age 2½ years. All adult female nursery attendants submit to a background check, and parents are required to sign their children in and out. Only designated Nursery volunteers may be in the Nursery during the worship assembly hour. Parents receive pagers so that nursery staff may notify them should they be needed before the end of the service.
At the rear of the auditorium adjoining the Welcome Center is a Mother and Baby room for mothers to soothe their children, feed them or rock them to sleep. The worship service may be observed from this room. Also, there are diaper changing stations located in the men’s and women’s restrooms in the back of the auditorium.
We are constantly striving to ensure the safety and security of all children in the care of our children’s ministry volunteers while in our building.
BIBLE WONDERLAND (2.5 – 5 years old)
Bible Wonderland is the teaching ministry for children from birth until they are ready to enter Kindergarten. The Nursery and Preschool classes, which meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 and Wednesday evenings at 7:15, are foundational for assisting parents with instilling in their children from the beginning, a love of our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and His Church. Over the course of their preschool years, children will be introduced to the preeminent men and women of the Old and New Testaments and will become familiar with the major events and themes of God’s word through stories, songs and fun learning activities. Our goal is to give our children the fundamentals for loving God and loving their neighbors throughout their lives.
PRESCHOOL PRAISE (2.5 – 5 years old)
Preschool Praise is a special worship time devoted to children ages 2.5-5 years old. The children are dismissed after communion to their own area of learning about God. Preschool lessons are designed with this age group in mind, understanding that children learn and grow from a variety of techniques. Each month, a new topic and memory verse is introduced and the children learn about that topic through song, crafts, story time and games.
BIBLE ADVENTURELAND (K-5th)
