Our Nurseries are Open!

We have nurseries during all worship services and Sunday School. 
Our nurseries are located in Rooms G-102 and G-104, near the Welcome Center and main lobby.

Child Protection Policy  
Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to the well-being of your child.  We follow the Safe Sanctuary policy of the United Methodist Church.  There are two adults in the room at all times.  Upon arriving to the nursery door,  you will sign-in on an iPad.  If this is your first time with us, you will be asked to register your child and provide us with important information.  Upon subsequent visits, you will use your cell phone number to sign your child into the nursery using the iPad.  In the unlikely event that you are needed in the nursery, you will receive a message on your cell phone.  
Allergies & Children's Belongings
Please label all bottles and sippy cups with your child's name.  Due to allergies, we ask that your child not bring anything containing nuts into the nursery.  Goldfish are provided by our nursery staff.  
Except for infants, we ask that children not bring stuffed animals or blankets into the nursery. 

In Case of Illness
We do ask if your child is showing any symptoms of illness, please do not bring them.  Sickness includes any fever, diarrhea, thick green or yellow mucus from nose, rashes, vomiting or any infection diagnosed by a doctor. Infections include: chicken pox, pink eye, rotavirus, etc.  This helps keep everyone healthy!   If you have questions regarding our nurseries, please
contact the church office.
