Children’s Distance Learning During COVID-19
We sure miss your smiling faces and wish we could gather right now!  During this time of social distancing, we encourage you to try to keep things as normal as possible.  Watch the live stream of our Sunday morning worship service together, then break for Sunday School.  Open with some worship songs as a family, move into the lesson then have everyone join in on the craft.  Be sure to end your Sunday School time with family prayer!

We love having your children in worship with us! 
Children have a special place in the church, and Living Word has lots of families and little ones.  Busy bags are located in the back of the Sanctuary near the kitchenette for your child’s use anytime during the service. 
If your little one is restless and you would like some help, nursery care is available during worship services.  
Parents are welcome to stay in the nursery with their child and can view the service via the screen provided in the nursery. 
Or, feel free to leave your children with nursery caregivers when they are present and return to the service.  Caregivers will check in your child with a number system that you will need in order to pick up your child after the service.
Where is the nursery located?
The nursery is located on the main level, past the staff offices, in the hallway with the Sunday School classrooms.  You can drop your child off with a caregiver there. 
When is nursery care available?
Nursery care is available with volunteer caregivers during worship services.  When caregivers are not available, the nursery is still open for your own use as long as you are present to supervise your child.   
Occasionally we’ll provide nursery care during studies and events; we’ll let you know if so.
What ages are typically in the nursery?
The nursery has appropriate caregivers, games and activities for little ones from birth to about kindergarten.  
Who is taking care of my child in the nursery?
Our nursery caregivers are volunteers from our congregation and church family and include adults and high school youth.
Do nursery caregivers change diapers?
If you’d like them to do so and provide changing supplies, they absolutely can change diapers.  If you’d prefer they do not, please make that clear at drop off.
What if my child cries and needs me?
Our nursery caregivers will come find you in the sanctuary if your child is inconsolable.
