Nursery and Preschool Ministry (Infants—Kindergarten)

When you welcome a child in the name of Jesus you welcome Jesus himself. (Mark 9:37)
Everything we do in NCJunior is focused on bringing children to a real and active relationship with God at an early age. Activities, lessons and curriculum are carefully selected and thoroughly planned to ensure that God’s Truth is communicated to your child in a way that is fun and relevant to the stage of life they are in. In partnering with parents regarding the spiritual training of their children, we pray over and love on every baby and child that comes through our doors as we introduce them to a lifelong journey of loving and serving God and others.

Infants—2 years
Our babies, toddlers and two-year-olds are introduced to Jesus through music, loving conversation with their caregivers. and Bible Stories. We meet their physical needs, including diapering and providing light snacks, to keep them happy and content while you are free to worship and receive teaching through a variety of classes and worship services.

3 years—Kindergarten
Our three-year-olds through Kindergarten children enjoy learning the Word of God through stories and hands-on experiences in an environment created just for them. They will receive a light snack and have their physical needs attended to by loving teachers and caregivers. We strive to give the children an experience they will want to return to each week.

This ministry is offered during scheduled church services and classes on Sundays and Wednesdays. All children will be checked in at the Nursery in the Family Ministry Center or the Preschool area on the 300 level of the church. Registration is open 15 minutes prior to each service.
We can’t wait to meet them and be your partner in discipling them!

Look for the area designated for Check-in or Guests. We will meet your family and check your child into our system, and one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room. We will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names, birthdates, grades, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.

You may check your child in at the kiosk in front of ToonTown. After the service, you will return to ToonTown for pick up. Only those names you have approved may pick up your child. ID may be required.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will text you, or your child’s last name will appear on the screen in the Sanctuary. We ask that you exit the Sanctuary immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Parents are always welcome to sit in on a service. Just let a staff member know and we will get you signed in. This helps us keep your kids safe.

We have large-group time and small-group time on Wednesday nights. We also have a choir, drama, and other electives to choose from. Wednesday night activities always start in ToonTown, and pickup will be from ToonTown as well.
