NURSERY

Nursery (Birth - 3 Years)

Childcare is provided from 8:30 am until noon on Sunday mornings by a staff caregiver and Safe Sanctuary trained volunteers.

When parents sign their child into the nursery, they receive a beeper with a number corresponding to the number on their child's nametag. To ensure the safety of children, caregivers will verify the parent's pager number matches the number on the child's nametag before releasing the child. We ask that parents please label all bags, bottles, and other items they leave in the nursery with their child.

BLAST! (Boldly Learn And Serve Together!)

BLAST Learning Hour: 9:15-10:30am
Children begin the morning in worship with their parents at 9:00am. After the opening music and message, they are dismissed with their leaders to attend BLAST.

BLAST is an engaging, virtues-based curriculum for K-5th graders that includes music, a large group Bible Story, virtue introduction, and prayer time, followed by age-appropriate small group activities that help children practice living out what they have learned. The curriculum fits our mission well with its emphasis on:

Faith - I can trust God no matter what
Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice
Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated

Preschool BLAST includes Bible Stories, crafts, activities, and music designed to teach children: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend. Children attending Preschool BLAST must have a nametag on before going to worship. Nametags can be found in the church lobby. Parents will need to show their portion of the nametag when picking their child up after worship.

Worship on the 1st Sunday of each month
On the first Sunday of each month, Oct.-May children attend the 9:00 BLAST worship service with their parents instead of class. This service introduces the new BLAST virtue and provides a shared faith experience as the whole family worships, sings, receives Communion, and prays together. Parents of preschoolers can choose to have their children participate in this special service or go to the nursery.

SUMMER BLAST!

10:00am Sunday Morning BLAST: Memorial Day - Labor Day
Worship is at 8:30 & 10:00, and the nursery is open from 8:15-11:15.

PreK-5th Graders are invited to BLAST following the Children's Message during the 10:00am worship service.  We'll learn and practice , our monthly virtues through Bible Stories, activities and mission projects.

Summer Mission Opportunities
The "S" in BLAST stands for "Serve." Join us this summer as we serve God by serving our neighbors.

Vacation Bible School
Summer BLAST is our replacement for VBS. Instead of offering 4 morning sessions of VBS and then "closing shop" for the rest of the summer - activities, lessons, mission projects and fun are planned all summer long. Come have a BLAST with us!

ACOLYTES
