You will quickly notice a lot of our ministry effort and focus is on children. We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment and adopt a ministry philosophy that partners with and empowers parents.
Our Potter’s Kidz program is all about partnering with you! As the parent and primary caregiver, we believe you are your child’s number one discipler. No one will be able to teach them more about life and the faith than you. Upon arrival on a Sunday morning, you can escort your children who are of at least age three and potty trained, up through fifth grade, to the annex where you can sign them in as early as 9:45a.
We employ strict safety protocol so we will need to collect some information if it is your first time. You and your children will then get a matching bracelet and number so only you or the one you designate can pick them up.
You can rest assured your children will be in a safe and clean environment with professional oversight. Our children’s ministers are both licensed Open Bible ministers and our Children’s Ministry Director has her degree in early childhood development. You will always find one of our two children’s ministers, Jenise Stanley or Abby Stanley, ready to greet you and help you with any questions. Our entire children’s team and all of our volunteers are passionate about inspiring them to live out a relationship with Jesus that changes the world!
Because our philosophy of children’s ministry is one of partnership with you, every Wednesday and Sunday your children will receive handouts of the day’s lesson for you to review. These handouts will include ‘parent cues’ which equip and empower you to further the discussion. There are also several Bible verses for family devotions during the week. And as always, we give you access to our Orange curriculum, kids games and more parent resources at www.studio252.tv! If you need help registering for this amazing resource that is our gift to you, please let us know.
Mid-week Potter’s Kidz looks just like Sunday morning except Pastor Jenise will always be there ready to welcome you! You can sign them in as early as 6:45p.
We take seriously a child’s first church experience. We view this ministry as more than just a baby sitting service. Our volunteers and workers incorporate experience, movement, and fun to begin teaching our little ones about the Bible and loving God early!
You can expect the same commitment to safety. In nursery, instead of bracelets, we use labels with numbers and also label your diaper bag or other items you bring in with your child.
The Toddler Nursery is available 15 minutes prior to and after our scheduled services. We provide snacks to minister to the physical needs of their growing bodies. Rest assured that your toddler will be in a clean and safe environment. We always have two volunteers on duty. If your child would happen to need you, we will flash your number on the screen so that we can let you know in an instant.
We find most parents choose to keep their infants with them during service, so our Toddler Nursery is for crawling toddlers to age three.
Our Infant Nursery is available for parents of infants to change diapers and for nursing mothers. We offer a pack and play, toys, and a space for your little one to enjoy as well. For your convenience, we supply wipes and up to size two diapers for your use.
