Learning to Love God and Love Others

 

Nursery

Here at North Fresno Church, we offer our nursery program, newborn through two years of age. To better serve the children (and parents) who use the facility, we maintain an environment that is safe, clean, and fun for your child. Your desire to bring your family at an early age to church is beneficial for them as well as for you. The more you come with your child on a regular basis, the more familiar your child will become with the nursery and feel comfortable with the attendants that serve them. We have a sleeping/feeding room with cribs and a rocker for nursing moms, an infant section with swings, play yards and toys, and a toddler section with age-appropriate toys and slides. Our nursery is available during both worship services and Sunday school and is located on the first floor of our Education Building.

We believe that “church” should be enjoyable as a family and we like to offer children the opportunity to experience the worship service with the family. We also know that children have shorter attention spans than adults, so we offer Children’s Church part-way through our services. Children age 3-years through 3rd grade are invited to attend Children’s Church on the 1st floor of our Educational Building. They hear a Bible story, play games, pray together and lots more.


So, how does it all work? During the worship service, we’ll let you know when it’s time for the children to be dismissed for Children’s Church. Then children sign in at their room and affix a nametag before meeting their teacher. When you walk them to their class, be sure to sign them in and get a wristband. After the worship service, you may sign out your child and return your wristband.

BLAST

BLAST is for children 9-years-old through 6th grader. BLAST meets on the 2nd floor of the Educational Building in Room 208. These students are dismissed during the last part of the service to enjoy a time of age-appropriate Bible learning just for them. We’ll indicate when it’s time for them to be dismissed in the worship service (usually just before the message).

*BLAST takes a break during the month of December.

Every Sunday from 10:00-10:50 a.m. we have Sunday school for ages 3-years and older. Our hour is filled with music, crafts, Bible lesson and more! The locations are listed in the weekly bulletin and we have signs posted outside each classroom for your convenience. We have classes for "3's and 4's," "K and 1st grade," "3rd - 6th grade" (preteens).

During the school year, kids 3-years through 6th are invited to Wednesday ROTATE from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This year, our children will ROTATE between:

* Gym Station - students will play fun games to help kids exhaust some energy, learn to play kindly and build friendships

* Video Station - students will listen to a "God Story" (Bible lesson) and a "My Story" (a child sharing how this God story is lived out in real life)

* Small Group Station - students will interact with the God/My Stories in small groups and work out applying what they've learned in their families, neighborhoods and schools.

All students must complete a 2019-20 Children's Ministry Waiver to participate.
