To help you with that, there is a safe, and enjoyable nursery available for all of our services. The nursery area is where we meet the needs of the youngest and most precious in our church family. Our time with these little ones (newborn through age one) is spent singing songs, engaging them in play, and teaching simple lessons about our Lord.
This ministry allows young child to feel at home and a parent can feel at ease to worship the Lord unencumbered. Rest assured when you place your child in the nursery at Abundant Harvest Baptist Church, they will be loved and cared for by qualified care givers.
When placing your child in the nursery plan to arrive ten to fifteen minutes before the service begins so you may check your child in and give any expectations to our nursery workers.
Relieving Your Care and Safety Concerns:
Children are signed into the nursery area by the child’s parent who fills out a brief information sheet. Then, the child is checked in by one of the nursery volunteers, and parent is given a pager with a number on it.
Children are not allowed to be picked up by anyone other than the parent with the matching number.
Our nursery provides excellent supervision to always ensure the safety of your child, and for your own peace of mind, we place a strong emphasis on cleanliness. Bedding for cribs is washed every week and clean bedding is used for each child. The nursery is thoroughly disinfected every week.
Age appropriate toys are available, new ones purchased periodically, and children are closely monitored as they play. Nursery workers play with the children as well.
Each child is checked and diapers changed at least once during the Worship Service. Nursery workers carefully adhere to notes and instructions left by the parents.
Essentials bags (diapers, clothing, etc.) need to be clearly labeled with the name of the parent or child. All of the items in the bag should also be clearly labeled with the name or initials of your child. If you have any special items that your child may need, please point them out to the nursery staff.
Your essentials bag may need to contain the following items:
• All items required for a change (diaper, creams, ointments, salves, wipes, etc.).
• Extra diaper(s).
• Bottle or cup as needed.
• Pacifier (clip on type is preferred) or other item your child may find comforting.
• Change of clothes.
Please do not bring toys, books, candy, gum or other personal items. Nursery staff will not give any of these items to your child if they are in the essentials bag.
