Nursery Team

Led By: Bev Rutenber & Paul Blake

We desire to create a loving and safe environment where families feel at ease to leave their babies and toddlers (2 years old and under) in our care while they work in other ministries or attend one of our services.

Nursery Team Ministry Introduction & Leadership Expectations

  • Arrive Early.
    • We expect that you would be in the nursery 10 minutes before your scheduled service start time.
    • Welcome children and make sure they have checked in and have a sticker.
    • Take their diaper bag and make sure it is labeled with a name tag so they are not confused with the others.
    • Please make sure that whomever picks up the child, gives you the guardian receipt before releasing the child.
  • Dependability.
    • If you are unable to be there for your scheduled service, please decline your commitment when you receive the reminder and try to find a replacement. If you are unable to find a replacement please contact Bev Rutenber. Please give as much advanced notice as possible.
  • Responsibilities.
    • During your service, we ask that you stay attentive to the children, seeing to their needs first.
    • Please check each child’s diaper before the end of the service so they are clean and not something the parents have to tend to before heading home.
    • Wipe down the toys that were used.
    • Put away all toys neatly and back in order.

Final Words

Please know that you are appreciated and loved. This ministry is more than just “babysitting," it is influencing our youngest generation for their future by showing them that you love them through teaching them that God loves them. Enjoying and influencing them to love the Lord even at such a young age could be one of the best things you could ever do. Remember, they are God’s blessings to our church and we want to love them as much as Christ loved the little children. We want to thank all those who work this ministry as it is super important to us and we want you to be blessed by this ministry.
