Nursery Ministry

Little ones are shown love and acceptance by caregivers who nurture and teach them about Jesus. It is our desire to minister to each child’s spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. Our rooms are divided by age group and staffed by loving and caring nursery caregivers.

Pagers

For your convenience and peace of mind we issue one pager per family for children birth through kindergarten. In the event that your child is crying inconsolably or we need to reach you for any reason, we will page you. The pager has indicator lights and a vibrator to alert you. Please keep it close to you. Simply return the pager after the service when you pick up your child.

Before Coming to the Nursery

Make sure your child is well. Children who have any symptoms of illness are not admitted into our nursery facility. Please be sure to label all of your child’s belongings.

What to Bring

Please include the following in a small diaper bag: two disposable diapers, bottles and or cup, pacifier, and a change of clothes.

Check In and Out

If you are new to the nursery, you will be asked to fill out a registration form. Each child receives a security number. You will use this number to pick up your child. For the safety of all of the children, you must present your security number in order to pick up your child. (yes, even if we know you.)

Curriculum

Regular learning experiences are planned for the children utilizing a variety of mediums (i.e. theme boards, books, simple prayers and songs).

Mother’s Room

For the convenience of nursing mothers we have a “Mother’s Room” located in each of our Worship Buildings (at the back). Please be sure to ask an usher or a greeter for assistance.

Preschool Ministry

Here at Olive Drive Church, kids experience fun activity stations, creative Bible storytelling, crafts, and games to help them understand God loves them, God made them, and Jesus is their friend forever.

Snacks

We offer snacks at both services please read the snack board, when dropping off your child(ren), if you have any concerns about food allergies.

Each weekend your child will experience:

  • Fun opening activities & games
  • Bible Story and worship
