“Our vision is to partner with the family in enabling children to know God in a dynamic relationship, to love one another, and to serve the Lord.”
Our goals are to:
- provide a safe, relevant and loving environment where children, from infancy through 5th Grade
- know God and grow in dynamic relationship
- explore the Bible and apply these truths to life
- build relationships that foster spiritual growth within the church family
- train for age-appropriate ministry and service
“…From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures, which can make you wise for salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correction, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:15,16
Theme Verse: “…we may not all sleep, but we shall all be changed!” 1 Thessalonians 4:14

September – June: Nursery care for babies up to age 2 is available on the first floor next to the Sanctuary, please ask an usher to direct you to it. of Calvary Baptist Church during the worship service. Children are cared for by volunteer workers who love children and who serve approximately once every four weeks.
When children reach age two, they are moved from the baby nursery, upstairs to the Children’s Church program for 2’s-Pre-K, SPROUTS Class. The children here have name buttons to wear on the back of their clothing, and parents also sign them in and out.
Relieving Your Care and Safety Concerns:
Children are signed into the nursery area by the child’s parent who fills out a brief information sheet. Then, the child is checked in by one of the nursery volunteers, and given a number: one number is pinned on the back of the child’s clothing, one number is attached to the diaper bag, and one is given to the parent. Children are not allowed to be picked up by anyone other than the parent with the matching number.
There is an electronic call board located above the organ in the sanctuary which parents can easily see during the worship service, in the event they need to be called back up to the nursery — if their child needs assistance in any way. The same number is used on the call board that is associated with the child at check in.
All nursery volunteers are encouraged to take an infant CPR class and infant CPR instructions are posted in the nursery.
Bedding for cribs is washed every week and clean bedding is used for each child. Age appropriate toys are available, new ones purchased periodically, and children are closely monitored as they play. Nursery workers play with the children as well.
Nursery workers carefully adhere to notes and instructions left by the parents.
Children are cuddled, hugged and loved here.
