Welcome to First Evangelical Free Church’s Nursery! We’re glad you came. Our nursery has two classrooms – one for infants and one for toddlers. During these early years children grow and develop quickly , and this division is based on size, mobility, and cognitive development. In other words, we want children to be both safe and engaged while they are with us.
Infant Nursery *
Infant Nursery is for children from birth to age two. The cutoff date is based on the first Sunday of Sunday School – typically the first Sunday after Labor Day. This room is designed for non-mobile, crawling, and early walking children.
Toddler Nursery *
Toddler Nursery is for children ages two and three. The cutoff date is based on the first Sunday of Sunday School – typically the first Sunday after Labor Day. This room is for mobile children.
Exceptions can be made for exceptional circumstances (typically developmental or health reasons) by the elders and nursery coordinator.
If your child isn’t already participating in the worship service regularly, we invite him/her to join the congregation when s/he turns four. You may pick up a Busy Bag in the entry for your child during the service and leave it in the seats when you depart . It is your privilege during the worship service to disciple your child, and we want them to learn that worshipping the Lord and fellowship with other believers is not reserved for “others” or “later.” Don’t worry if they wiggle and make some noise, they are still children!
Children are our special responsibility, entrusted to our care by God. It is the mission of our Nursery staff to provide a place where young children are loved, nurtured, and cared for. In our Nursery, infants, toddlers, and two to three year olds have their first introduction to their church home. Here they learn from loving caregivers what Jesus taught the children: God loves you!!
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14
