NURSERY & PRESCHOOL
WELCOME TO THE HARVEST NURSERY MINISTRY!
We are happy you’ve decided to join us in worship at Harvest Church. If you have children ages birth through 5 years old, who have not yet started Kindergarten, then they will participate in our Harvest Nursery Ministry zoo. Our HNM program is very intentional. Our first priority is showing children Jesus’ love. Our continual prayer is that every child will be cared for in a safe, fun, and loving place that they will want to return to again and again. We enforce a well-baby nursery for the health of children and volunteers.
The Harvest Nursery Ministry opens 15 minutes prior to each service
Sundays 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30am
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE HARVEST NURSERY MINISTRY?
In coordinating with the developmental stages of childhood, your little one will be placed in one of the following classes:
Little Lambs (0-12mos)
Curious Cubs (12-23mos)
Terrific Toucans (2s & 3s)
Mighty Monkeys (4s & 5s)
Newborn to 3 years old
In our 0 to 3 years classrooms your child will learn basic foundational Bible stories every Sunday through simple stories and concepts and enjoy coloring a coordinating color page that shows what they learned that day. We provide age-appropriate activities, story time, music and movement, and prayer time for all ages. Each room is staffed by a teacher and volunteers who love children. We are committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment.
4 to 5 years old
In HNM your preschool-aged child (4s & 5s) will experience activity stations, kitchen and Rescue Heroes® centers, manipulative and table top centers, snack time discipleship, and art.
· Large Group Lesson – includes a Bible story, worship songs, and learning how to apply the Bible to our lives. Kids also learn that the Bible is true, because it is God’s Word, and that Jesus is our forever friend.
· Playground – weather permitting, we go to the “park.” If it’s too hot or cold we have indoor play time.
· Snack is offered each week and is typically cereal and goldfish mixture and water. During snack we also recite the Bible story scripture and give a sticker to reward hiding God’s Word in their hearts.
· The Arts and Crafts that your child makes will reflect a key point from the Bible story.
