Nursery – infants through age 2 years

We provide loving childcare for infants and toddlers through age 2 in our Nursery on Sunday mornings in room 102 during the 9 am and 10:30 am Worship Services. Our Nursery is staffed by loving, fully trained adults who provide stories, crafts and music to our precious little ones.

A few reminders:
You must remain on the Christ United Methodist campus while your child is in childcare. Our childcare is a well child facility and we do not have the capability to care for children who are not feeling well. If your child is ill, please do not bring him/her to childcare.

Safe Sanctuaries

Because Christ United Methodist Church is a community of faith – a safe haven and sanctuary – where children and youth can be confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal we have implemented a Safe Sanctuaries Policy. This policy requires all volunteer leaders and staff to complete sexual abuse prevention training and complete a background screening. Please refer any questions to Vanitta Conrad, Director of Christian Education at her Email.  Print, fill out, and send  reference form to Vanitta.
