Nursery for our “Little Ones”

The nursery is open from 8:30 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. during the Sunday School year and from 9:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. during the summer. Our baby room is for newborns, one-year olds, and “new walkers.” Once children are comfortably walking, they may move to the Nursery Playroom filled with two, three, and four-year olds. During Sunday mornings, the children enjoy music time, listen and interact with Bible stories, take part in craft projects, eat a light snack, and play with church friends.

We have a wonderful nursery staff taking care of our little ones every Sunday morning. Ms. Rita Raines serves as our Baby Room Lead and Ms. Mary Smith serves as our Nursery Playroom Lead. We also have a very sweet group of college students assisting Ms. Rita and Ms. Mary in the nursery on Sunday Mornings – Stephanie Autry, Jessica Bond, Claire Hurley, and Caylee Morrell. And helping to support our nursery staff is our Nursery and Volunteer Coordinator, Ms. Jennifer Abbott. Jennifer not only makes sure that we have plenty of helping hands in the nursery on Sunday mornings, but also serves as the nursery greeter welcoming children and families to the Nursery Baby Room and Playroom.
