Nursery Ministries Director, Heather Gatling
North Pointe’s Nursery Ministries consists of three sections; Infant Nursery, Toddler Nursery and Barnyard Gang.
Our Infant Nursery is for ages 0-1 while Toddler Nursery is for ages 1-2. Our Nursery is newly renovated with new rocking chairs, extra soft padding for our newly installed carpet, bright colored walls and lots of toys as well as visual and audio media to make your child’s time in our nursery a positive and spiritually uplifting experience. We have very knowledgeable and experienced nursery workers who LOVE our babies and toddlers and that hold solidly to the belief that it is never too early to start teaching our children! Though we certainly change diapers, rock the babies, sing and play with them, we do feel that it is imperative to introduce them to Jesus! Because of that, we incorporate a short Bible lesson and Bible songs during their stay with us!
Our Barn Yard Gang is for ages 21/2 to 4 years. Because we feel strongly that children should be exposes to the worship in our main sanctuary, this group dismisses from the main worship service immediately following the praise and worship time with our main congregation. Once they have been dismissed our teachers have Bible they teach each with along with a craft and music time. Our goal is always to create loving relationships with these little ones and show them God’s love! We want to teach them who Jesus is and get them excited about the Word of God!
All of our workers submit to background checks and are also CPR/First Aid trained and certified in cases of emergency. Also, for your child’s safety, we utilize a check-in system for each child that enters our facilities along with a fact sheet that includes emergency contact numbers, medical concerns such as allergies, and general information to help us get to know your child a little better.
We are here to serve you and your family’s needs! If I can be of any assistance to you or answer any questions you may have, please feel free to contact me!
