For children 0-PreK, we offer an environment called Waumba Land. Waumba is the Swahilian word for creator and Waumba Land is where our preschoolers are cared for in small groups. Waumba Land happens at the same time as our adult service. It is a clean, safe and carefully staffed environment where your children will be well cared for while you enjoy the worship service.
We want preschoolers to know that…
- God Made Me
- God Loves Me
- Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
If you’d like to speak with someone about our children’s ministry environments, please contact Erica Foster.
Procedures and Guidelines
Our nursery has implemented an ID badge system that prevents anyone other than the parent from picking up a child. As you sign in your child, you will receive an ID badge with your child’s number on it. Simply return that ID badge to a nursery worker when picking up your child. Your child will be issued his/her number when you sign them in.
The nursery is designed for children of ages newborn to 2 years or early walkers. Our staff will inform the parent when they feel a child is ready to move to the toddlers.
Nursery facilities will be open during each adult worship service. Please remember to be prompt in picking up your children after the service is over.
In order to ensure the safety and health of other babies and workers, please refrain from bringing your child if he/she has any of the following symptoms:
- Open Sores
- Running Nose (anything but clear)
We are striving to make the nursery as healthy and safe as possible. Some ways we are doing this are by using rubber gloves for diaper changes, matching children to parents with personal ID badges, and using qualified staff members. We also sanitize toys after each service.
Diaper bags, clothing and other personal items must be labeled with the child’s full name. Please include a change of clothing and an empty plastic bag in the diaper bag for wet or soiled clothing. Include some disposable diapers for your child. Do not allow your child to bring personal toys or other possessions unless it is a “security” item (pacifier, blanket, etc.).
