GUIDE FOR NURSERY
As a Nursery Volunteer, you are
contributing to the mission of
1) Caregivers and Teachers for toddlers (1-4 years old) during worship
During the week prior to Worship Service:
¨ Read all the lessons for your worship service.
¨ Pray for guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
¨ Plan a few teaching points to reinforce the Gospel for the day as you find an opportunity.
Before the Worship Service:
¨ Arrive 10 minutes before the service starts.
¨ Wear your name-tag.
¨ Go to the “welcome table” and check in with the council-person-of-the-day.
¨ Put on a nursery apron – available in the coatroom.
¨ Check the nursery and see that all is safe and in-order.
¨ Ensure you have hand towels, diapers, and a first aid kit readily available. All these are located in the nursery.
¨ Get name tags and a marker pen from the narthex credenzas.
¨ As children are brought to you, make a nametag for each, and affix nametag to child.
During the Worship Service:
¨ Entertain and teach the children while their parents worship.
¨ In the likely event that PARENTS CHOOSE TO WORSHIP WITH THEIR CHILDREN (as we strongly recommend), simply keep wearing the apron and participate in worship in the back of the sanctuary.
¨ Should a crying child be removed from worship by their parents, offer to assist.
After the Service:
¨ Rejoice! You have served well. Thank you!
