Ministries Children and Family

Nursery

Location: Lower floor of McKernan Baptist Church

Times Available: Sunday mornings during both services

What to bring: 

1. Diaper bag with disposable diapers. We do have extras if needed.

2. Pacifier or other items that will help calm them.

3. We suggest a change of clothing for those "just in case moments"!

4. A bottle of milk, formula, juice or water. 

Your child's health: 

We operate a well-baby program. For the protection of all the children in our ministry we cannot accept a child with an excessively runny nose, fresh cold (four days or less), fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness. We request that you not place your child in the program while they are at risk of exposing other children. Thank you in advance for helping us keep our program a healthy place for all.

When you arrive:

For both services, we will be open for use 15 minutes before 15 minutes after the service. Sign in your child at the registration desk. If you are a new family, please fill out a family registration form and give it to the nursery leader as you drop your child off. Give any special instructions to the leader who greets you and the diaper bag with the things listed above within it. It will have specific areas for the various stages of development – babies, crawlers, walkers etc. 

Our Volunteers:

Each of our volunteers has had a police background security check to ensure the highest integrity. Parents are encouraged to team up together for nursery duty. Talk to one of the greeters to sign up/enlist and receive a security clearance form.

Snacks:

Snacks are provided for your children. These are nut free and consist of things such as Cheerio’s®, crackers and digestive cookies. Please inform the nursery volunteers of any special instructions regarding allergies.

Pick-up Procedures:

Sign out your child at the registration desk and go into the nursery to pick your child up.  It would help our leader if the same parent that drops the child off could pick them up to help us keep track of parents and children.
