Nursery Ministries

It all begins when they are babies! Our nursery goal is for children to be comforted and cared for in a safe, nurturing environment.

Nursery Care is available in Room 204 from 8:15 a.m. until noon each Sunday. Our nursery is staffed with carefully screened, professional child care providers.

Children in Worship

Children are highly valued at Laurel and they are always welcome to worship with their parents in the Sanctuary.

Children’s packets are available. These packets include coloring pages, crayons, and other quiet activities to occupy children’s hands as they listen. Please feel free to ask an usher for a packet for your child.

The Aquarium, located on the third floor, is another option. The room overlooks the sanctuary and you are able to see and hear the service while your child takes advantage of the activities provided.

Children’s Safety

Children’s safety is a priority for us. A sign-in sheet is required for parents who have children participating in the Nursery and two year-old rooms. These parents are also asked to take a pager with them. The sign-in sheet includes the number of the pager which is given to each parent. This system provides parents added comfort and peace of mind knowing they can be immediately notified if they are needed.

No unauthorized person may remove a child from the nursery.

Safe Sanctuaries

Our church has adopted policies and procedures intended to protect children and youth from any risk of child abuse. Our goal is always to maintain a safe place where children and youth may experience God’s love and engage in learning.
