Nursery & Mini-MainKids — Infants through age 3

In the Family Ministry, one of our strongest desires is for even our youngest ones to sense that God loves them and that church is a good place to be. Embracing and caring for your child’s physical needs in a safe environment, surrounded by loving adults who demonstrate Christ’s love, are what matter most at this stage.

We have a strict policy requiring at least two teachers in every room at all times. For infants, our baby-to-teacher ratio is considerably lower than the State's requirements. In each room, you will find teachers who have served our little ones faithfully every week for years. Most often, you will see these caretakers rocking children, playing on the floor with them, or playing music for them. Every teacher has passed a background check, and one or more teachers in each room is CPR-certified. We use KidCheck to ensure that children are securely checked in and out of the Nursery and classrooms.

If you have any questions about our programs or would like a tour of the Nursery or classrooms, please contact Dolores or Kate for more information. 

Before Your First Visit

  • Please click here to set up a free KidCheck account before you drop off your child in our care for the first time. When you arrive, you can check your child in using the KidCheck mobile app or one of our computers in the Family Ministry area.
     
  • Plan to park in the front parking lot and enter through the Welcome Center. Go around the main staircase to reach the Mini-MainKids hallway on the first floor. The Nursery is at the end of the hallway. Classrooms, separated by year, are along the hallway.
     
  • For babies, please bring a bag with diapers, extra clothes, bottles, and food—and please label all bags and bottles with your name.
     
  • Nursing moms are welcome to take advantage of our beautiful, comfortably furnished Mothers' Room, located just off the Gathering Area in front of the Nursery.
     
  • If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dolores or Kate. We hope you will join us!
