Welcome to Nursery & Faith Formation for Kids Pre-Birth through Age 3! New infants and toddlers are welcome any time!
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.”

Pray & Play Nursery for Ages 0-3 Years:
In our nursery your child will experience a safe, loving and creative environment staffed by adult and youth caregivers who are ready to welcome your young child during worship times: Saturdays at 5:30 pm, Sundays at 9 and 10:30 am. Parents and other adults in our Nursery Co-op support Play-n-Pray Nursery by being caregivers or subs on a monthly schedule or as arranged.
Nativity’s nursery is located on the main level down the hall from the sanctuary past the Welcome Desk. Sign in your child, leaving a cell number so caregivers can contact you if need be. Make a nametag for your child. Please let the caregivers know if your child has a diaper bag or is potty trained. Your child will enjoy age-appropriate toys, simple art projects and a story time.
Nativity’s “Kid Zone”:
Located in the Commons area close to the sanctuary, the Kid Zone is a place for toddlers and kids to play while supervised by their parents. Kid-sized tables and chairs, Duplos, Bible story puzzles and books are available. The Kid Zone also has clipboards with coloring pictures and crayons that can be taken in to worship, as well as Faith Bags containing hardboard books, small toys and puppets. There is a monitor in the Kid Zone where parents can see and hear the worship service.
Musikgarten at Nativity is a musical experience designed to bring the joy of music to children ages 0-4 and their parent/caregiver. Children are naturally drawn to music, and music touches the whole child, supporting social, physical, emotional, and intellectual development.

Pray & Play Butterflies (Age 2)
There is no better time to start teaching children about Jesus than the toddler years. Our 2 year old faith formation helps to prepare your toddler for a more structured environment and they have fun learning about Jesus! They will begin in room 218 with the age 3 – K for music and move to the nursery after.
