Nursery Ministry Contact
Are you expecting a baby? Whether it’s your first or fifth, be sure to contact us. It is our sincere desire to come along side you during this exciting season of life and pray for you as well as line up meals for after your baby arrives. If you contact Sara and let her know your due date, she will be sure to send out some helpful information and encouragement as you near the arrival of your little one.
Sometimes meals are helpful during the last weeks of pregnancy, too, so don’t delay ~ let her know right away!
Newborns to 2 years old
The Nursery Ministry will partner with families to introduce babies, toddlers, and two year olds to the love of Jesus through consistent care and simple teaching by loving adults.
Newborns are lovingly cared for by trained, female volunteers. Our “cradle nursery” is a warm, welcoming place for nursing moms and their babies! Infants and Crawlers learn from a very simple curriculum that is tactile and visual. It is in this nursery that we teach our babies to gently “pat the Bible.” They learn that God made everything as they look at birds, bunnies, clouds... We have special infant tables with built-in seats for these little people.
Toddlers move on to discover that God made families as they enjoy learning about farm families. Each lesson reminds the children "God made families. God made my family. Thank you, God, for my family!" Structured, traditional teaching begins with 2-year-olds. Roaming storytellers come to each class with a planned lesson and a time of praise & worship enhances the children’s retention of the lessons as we “walk through the Bible” together! Classroom volunteers have several simple guided activities to enhance the children’s retention of the lesson.
Sunday Evening Nursery
During our Sunday evening worship time, we offer nurseries where our youngest are loved and nurtured. We have separate nurseries for babies and toddlers, as well as 2- and 3-year-old children. These are offered year-round.
If you have questions about baptizing your child or wish to schedule a baptism, please contact Liz McNulty at 704-814-1031 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a one-time baptism class with an Elder for all first-time families baptizing at Christ Covenant Church. Baptism usually occurs on the third Sunday of the month.
