Our Junior Attendants are at least 14 years old and are very trustworthy. Junior Attendants are ALWAYS staffed with one or more Senior Attendants
We are blessed with a beautiful new nursery facility. It is built to current day care standards, sunny, and cheerful! We have a separate play area for babies and nursing mommies, a comfortable reading and quiet play place, a play kitchen and a workshop, active play spaces, large tables for crafts or feeding the children, and an attached bathroom with a child sized potty. The children’s art work often decorates the windows and walls. It is a very nice place to play! We hope that you will join us!
Nursery service is available on Sunday mornings for worship and Sunday school for children from birth to five years. We also provide nursery for bells and choir practices, church meetings, bible studies, and social circle meetings. Children birth through 12 years are welcome during these times.
In addition to our Sunday nursery, we offer the Little Shepherds Play Day. This is a wonderful mother’s (or father’s!) day out program. Each Friday during the school year from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. we keep an eye on your little one while you have a well deserved break! We play and sing, do special crafts, have a snack and story time, and feed the children their sack lunch. We can accept children ages 18 months to kindergarten. Please bring your child a lunch and whatever necessities labeled, and let us enjoy the kids while you enjoy some free-time! Maximum capacity 20 children. We ask a donation of $1 per hour for members, and $2 per hour for non-members. Call our church office at (719) 544-1917 for more information.
