Children Are A Gift From The Lord; They Are A Reward From Him.
The Pendleton UMC nursery is available for infants and toddlers up to age 3. Our nursery is a caring and nurturing environment where your child can experience God’s love. It provides parents the opportunity to worship and attend adult Sunday School classes knowing that their young children are in a safe and spiritually fulfilling place.
On your first visit, you are given an information card to complete for each child who attends. In case of emergencies, we will contact you at the contact phone numbers you list on the card.
Please bring a labeled bag which includes a pacifier (if your child uses one), at least two diapers, a change of clothes and all personal items your child may need such as wipes, ointment, bottles and/or comfort blankets. All personal items should be labeled before arrival. If you forget diapers and wipes, we have some on hand.
For the protection of all children and volunteers, we ask that you please do not bring your child to the nursery if he or she is ill. If a child becomes ill while in the nursery, the parents will be contacted and requested to take the child home. Nursery staff cannot administer medication. Children who have experienced any of the following symptoms within the previous 24 hours should not come to the nursery. Fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, undiagnosed rashes or sores, on-going cough, runny eyes or nose, and/or symptoms of childhood illnesses such as measles, chicken pox, mumps, influenza, strep throat or head lice.
Experienced caregivers serve in the nursery. There are a minimum of two adult volunteers in the nursery at all times. The volunteers have received “Safe Sanctuary Training”, which is required by PUMC. To learn more about our volunteers, or if you would like to serve in the nursery, please contact us. We would love to hear from you!
