Children are very important to us; therefore, we do not view them as the church of tomorrow, but as the church of today. Jesus captured the essence of nursery ministry when he told his disciples, “whoever welcomes one such child in my name, welcomes me” (Matthew, 18:5). Providing a loving, caring and safe environment for children, gives parents confidence that they are free to worship with the rest of the congregation. It is also great to know that through our gifts we are helping others get the most out of their worship experience. We are intentional in our efforts to equip fathers and mothers to disciple their own children and we provide church-wide support and encouragement in child raising endeavors. Nursery is provided for infants and toddlers (ages 0-3) on Sunday morning while older children and youth join their families for worship.
