All children are encouraged to attend worship with their families. However, we do provide nursery for children who have not yet entered kindergarten. We have three separate nurseries for infants, toddlers, and three/four year olds. All of our nurseries are staffed with paid employees and a Nursery Director.

Sign In Procedure
Each room has a sign-in sheet for parents to sign. This is important for record keeping and is a back up to the safety stickers should we need to contact you. These sign-in sheets should have your child’s name already on it (for those who have attended relatively recently); you will only need to sign your name, then fill in your cell number and your location within our church campus.
As our church has been blessed with a growing number of both visitors and staff, ID safety stickers add an extra layer of security that many large churches around the nation have found beneficial. Please ensure that you retain the parent’s portion and present it when you come to pick up your child, as we are only to release a child to a parent (or guardian) with the proper stub. Please note that the nursery staff is not authorized to release a child to a non-adult sibling.
