Our Nursery – Ages Birth to 2 Years Old
This is a fun place… a safe place… a clean place… but most importantly, it is a place where every child is loved, cared-for and taught about Jesus. Our goal is to make every child feel loved and every family feel welcomed so that you can confidently call CCON your church home. We see the nursery as a true ministry to families of infants and toddlers and we take it very seriously! Every time our doors are open we have a very specific routine that ensures the children a well-rounded learning experience. Our routine includes: bible-lesson time (bible “story” for babies), bible-song time, free-play, snack time and sometimes even a nap time! All lessons, songs, etc. are age-appropriate.
Two and Three Year Old Class
All 2 & 3 year olds will enjoy a class specifically designed for them during the 9:00 and 11:00 services on Sundays in room 214 If you are arriving at that time for worship, please go directly to 214 to check in your child. You will be given a security pager at that time.
The nursery is open 15 minutes before and after all regularly schedule weekend services and Wednesday night activities. Additionally, it will be open for certain All-Church special events. For these special occasions, please refer to your worship folder for a time schedule.

Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures
A teacher will greet you at the desk to receive your child and diaper bag and will assign you a pager number. You will sign in your child, pin your child’s nametag to his/her back and write down your assigned pager number. If you are attending an off-campus event, please indicate a phone number where you can be reached. Please indicate if your child has any special needs or allergies at each check-in time. If you are needed during the worship hours, your pager will vibrate quietly. Your child will be released to the adult who checked-in the child unless special instructions are given at check-in. No siblings checking in or out please. Don’t forget your belongings!
What to Bring
Please, please, please label all your child’s belongings!!
- Diaper Bag with essentials including 2 or 3 disposable diapers (sorry, no cloth) ointment, and wipes.
- Comfort items such as pacifier (must have clip), blankets, etc.
- Change of clothes.
- Bottle or sippee cup with formula, juice, milk, water, etc.
- A healthy child, wearing a clean, dry, diaper.
The gals (and dads) in the nursery are the most special people on the face of the earth! We have been obedient to God’s calling to do the most important and rewarding work – teach those most special to Jesus, the little children. They specialize in separation anxiety, children’s Bible curriculum, Bible songs, and yes, even changing diapers! We know how important it is to be a consistent, familiar face, so the nursery children aren’t anxious when mom and dad leave them with us. In addition, all of our Children’s Ministry staff are required to complete an application/screening process including a criminal background check.
The Nursery is always looking for an extra pair of hands to rock a baby or read a story to a toddler. If you are hearing God’s call to our ministry, we would welcome you to the Nursery Family! Check out our “Get Involved” application or contact our Early Childhood Director.
