We love having 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 on Sunday mornings from 7:45 AM – 11:45 AM. You can accompany your child to play in the nursery or you can leave them with our Volunteer Nursery Families, who take turns working together to ensure your child is well cared for while you attend the service.
Your child’s safety and security is very important to us!

All adult nursery volunteers are background checked.

Additionally, we use a program called Check-Ins, accessed through the Church Center App, to check your children in and out of the nursery. 

At check-in, two labels will print.  The first is a name label for your child.  The second is a security label that will stay with the parent until check-out.

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 and between 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.
What if my child cries and needs me?
Monitor your cell phone.  Nursery volunteers will message you if your child is inconsolable or needs a diaper change.
