Questions & Answers
1 Where should I bring my child?
There is one nursery open during Sunday service, it is an Infant and Toddler nursery (up to age 5).
Ushers are available to help assist your family in finding the right room for your child.
2 What should I bring for my child?
When placing your child in the nursery you will need the following:
- 3 Diapers
- Bottles for baby during the entire time in nursery, they must be ready to serve. If your baby is breast
fed you will need to bring a water bottle.
- Complete change of clothing in a plastic bag.
Place all items in a diaper bag, please be sure that all items are labeled with your child's name.
(Any unmarked items that are left behind will be discarded).
3 Do I have to take my child to the nursery?
No. However, our ushers are instructed to encourage parents of small children to take advantage of the
nursery for the following reasons:
a. Children can become uncomfortable in the Sanctuary, our services are not conducted on their
level so they lose interest quickly.
b. Small children can be very distracting. (Small children crying, whispering, tugging on mom
or crawling under the chairs can cause someone else to miss the real meaning of the service.)
4 When is the nursery open?
The nursery is open at the beginning of each weekly service, generally 15 minutes before service begins.
5 How about feeding?
We ask that you care for the feeding of your child prior to service. With a limited number of caregivers
It is impossible to hand feed, we will however give your child his/her bottle and toddlers will receive
pretzels and a drink. If you would like to bring a snack we will gladly share it among all the children in
the nursery to avoid hurt feelings.
6 How do I register (or place) my child in the nursery?
Simply bring your child your child to the nursery, you will be required to answer a few simple questions:
child's name, your name diaper bag color and any special instructions. A tag will be placed on your child
and you will be given a number for security purposes. Please inform us of any allergies, food, bee stings, etc.
7 What if my child needs me?
An usher will be notified and will come and get you if your presence is needed. Please do not come to the
nursery during service, sometimes just by the attachment of your child to you will cause them to want
you and only you and that will cause them to cry. Worship with the knowledge that your child is being well
8 How long do I have after the service to pick up my child?
It is important that you pick up your child IMMEDIATELY after service, the caregivers are not asked to stay
long after service ends; the purpose of the nursery is for the convenience of the parents during service time
only. If you do go up for prayer please make arrangements for someone to pick up your child.
9 Can I bring food to the nursery?
Baby bottles are allowed in the nursery, however food is not allowed unless it is a snack that can be shared
with the other children. If your child has special dietary needs and needs to be fed during service, please
bring your child out of the nursery and return when finished.
