And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will
never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name
welcomes me." Matthew 18:4-6
This is a playful and loving ministry designed to serve children and their parents during the Sunday
morning and first Sunday evening congregational worship time. In addition to keeping watch over our
little ones, volunteers assist in collecting pagers after services, turning them off, and cleaning up the
nursery. Each volunteer serves a few times a year. Typically, five attendants monitor the children
each Sunday morning and two on the first Sunday evening. Schedules are posted and mailed every
three months, so all volunteers have ample opportunity to notify an alternate if they are unavailable
at their scheduled time.
The leader(s) of this ministry make quarterly schedules for volunteers, verify that each volunteer
reports for her scheduled duty, obtains last-minute alternates, insures that the nursery is clean and
pagers are turned off after each service, maintains the budget and expenses for the nursery,
purchases necessary items for the nursery, and washes linens as necessary. We ask leaders to
make a 1-2 year commitment.
