Nursery and Toddlers

Infant care is lovingly provided in our nurseries for newborns through age 2 1/2. The nursery is where we meet the needs of the youngest in our church family. Our time with these little ones is spent singing songs, engaging them in play, and teaching simple lessons about Jesus and His love for them.

People You Should Meet: Rosa Santiago-Deppa, Nursery Coordinator

We want you to know that we consider it an honor and privilege to care for your child each week and we will never take the responsibility lightly. All nursery staff members have received background checks and training to care for these little ones in a safe and nurturing way.  We make sure all toys are cleaned weekly and there are even extra diapers in both the Men's and Women's bathrooms!
