The Ministry of the Church Nursery
There is nothing better than to hear the sound of babies and young children in and around the church building. If you are in a church that is lucky enough to have infants and toddlers, you also have the great responsibility of creating a safe, welcoming, and nurturing environment for the children and their families.
To assist you and others in your congregation in providing a nursery ministry, here are two good resources to use as a guide:
The Most Important Space in the Church by Rita Hays
This resource is full of lists and suggestions to lead pastors, nursery committees, nursery workers, and parents.
Building an Intentional Church Nursery
This is a FREE resource from Spark House that has basic information that focuses on security, love, and communication as being the first steps in creating an “intentional” church nursery.
