Sprouts Nursery Ministry provides care for infants-Pre-K. It is our desire to provide a safe, loving environment for little ones to play and experience God's love while parents fully engage in worship, Bible study and other church-sanctioned events. Our goal is to reach every child and teach them on their level. We instill in each child that God loves them and Jesus is their friend, regardless of their age. All children are registered in Ministry Platform to ensure safe and secure check-in and out. In the event that a parent or guardian is needed, a call or text message will be placed.
Nursery and Kids Sunday School are back together on campus again! Please RSVP below.
Sprouts- 8:00, 9:30 & 11:00 am, Main Nursery
Children 8 weeks-4 yrs will be in nursery rooms based on developmental ability and/or age. During this season, we ask that parents provide labeled items that may be needed during their children's time in the nursery (bottles, diapers, etc.) in a CLEAR ziploc or "Game Day" style bag. Temporarily we will not be serving snacks in the nursery. You can pack one to send with your child.
- Babies and toddlers are welcomed into a safe and loving environment. We teach them about God’s love through songs, simple interactions, and modeling.
- Older toddlers and 2yr olds learn to play with friends, hear stories about the Bible, and create crafts or coloring pages to learn about Jesus.
- 3 years old and above will be placed in Nursery rooms by their age (3-4 year old and Pre-K classes). Each Sunday, the children will learn more about Jesus and the Bible through The Gospel Project curriculum. They will engage in a lesson consisting of Bible story videos, with teachers and peers, crafts, and games.
- During the 9:30 worship hour all age groups are separated as numbers dictate. During the 11:00 worship hour, multiple ages may be combined as numbers dictate.
We are asking that families RSVP to reserve a spot for Nursery and Sunday School each Sunday you are going to attend. Yes, we understand this is a big change and hopefully we will not have to do this very long. However, maximum capacities have been determined for all classrooms and large spaces in accordance with state child care guidelines. Numbers will be limited for this reason and dependent on the number of nursery workers and volunteers available. Extra spots will be reserved for visitors or walk-ups, but we ask for everyone to RSVP so we can plan accordingly. Thank you for your help!
Please download and read our new COVID-19 policies and Check-In/Check-Out Procedures below. Please watch this video to see what Sunday Mornings will be like.

The Re Entry Task Force, Children's Re-Entry Advisory Team and Children's Ministry Staff has been hard at work developing procedures that will implement sanitization and social distancing practices to keep your families and volunteers healthy. Things will look differently now, just as with everything else in our world. We want to provide you as parents with all the information you need. With your help implementing these practices we can ensure a fun, loving environment for your kids to learn about God's love and grow in their faith! Please read the following documents for details on the new procedures that will be followed. We will continue to modify the procedures as needed to reflect the current State Child Care Guidelines.
