“We will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders.” Psalm 78:4
The nursery ministry exists for two primary reasons: to introduce our youngest members to the foundational stories of the Bible and to provide a safe, clean, and loving environment for babies during our regular Sunday and Wednesday meeting times.
Our nursery teachers introduce Bible stories using techniques adapted specifically to the babies’ stage of development. Beginning as early as parents are comfortable leaving their children, babies are placed in one of our nurseries according to age. Parents first bring their baby to a centrally located check-in station where a trained volunteer can assist with registration. Our FellowshipOne computer system gives volunteers a way to contact parents in case of emergency, and secures our babies’ safety by giving parents a unique receipt number that they must use to pick up their child. All of our nurseries are staffed with adults who have been screened, background checked, and trained according to our Child Protection Policy.
The Otter Creek children's ministry celebrates a Baby Dedication once a year for newborns and their families. Through this event we emphasize the spiritual responsibility that parents and our church family have in the lives of each of our children.
Volunteer! Whether you can give one hour each month, one hour a week, or occasionally serve, the nursery ministry has a spot for you. If you love the tiniest babies or prefer playing with the busy two year olds, we can help you find your place. Volunteering is a true blessing. By spending time with other adults who love to serve families, our volunteers form relationships that help them stay connected to our entire church family. All of our parents are expected to take a turn serving in the nursery or some other area of children’s ministry.
