children's

On Sunday mornings, we have classes for all ages of children for both Sunday School and our worship service. 


Children ages 3 and under are welcome in our nursery, which, when necessary, is separated into infants and toddlers. 


Those children 4 and up have their own classrooms for Sunday School. We'll gladly help you get your child to the appropriate class for him or her. 


During our worship service, we invite all kids into the service until the Children's Sermon. At that time they are called forward, and receive a short sermon and prayer. They are then dismissed to go back to Uehlin Hall to their own worship experience. If you are new, please feel free to slip out and take them down if you'd like to know where they are!


Children's Church always begins with prayer requests. This is followed by a Bible story that expounds on the Sunday School lesson from earlier that day. (We are currently studying the Old Testament.) Puppets are usually incorporated and we end with worship songs. 



Nursery (Including Toddlers)


The nursery and toddler department (birth through age 3) at Payette Church of the Nazarene is intentional; we are not just babysitters. We want to express the love of Jesus to all children while providing the best of care. 


We recognize the importance of the early years when first impressions of the Church are being formed, and we want to make this a positive experience for both parent and child. We will do everything within our means to provide for the child's physical, emotiional, social, intellectual, and spiritual needs, so that your entire family will find coming to Church a pleasant experience and time of renewal.

Our nursery/toddler ministry is three-fold:


1. It enables parents to participate freely in Sunday School and all Church services.


2. It exposes even the youngest babies to loving attitudes, actions, and a Christian atmosphere, which in turn gives shape to their early spiritual development.


3. Families are offered the opportunity to serve in this important ministry.


Family members will be encouraged to volunteer in the nursery at least once a quarter.

 


For the safety of our children, and in accordance with our Denominational, State, and insurance requirements, background checks are required for all those who work with children and/or teens in any capacity.

 


There is no charge for the background check required of all volunteers and all results are kept confidential.

 


If you have any questions about this process, please email Pat Stutzman, the head of the nursery
