Growing Families in Christ


Post-Harvey Update:
Currently the FUMC nursery is closed.  Your children are always welcome to join us in worship!  There is a family worship area available near the Live Oak entrance of the church (between the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Hall), where you will find some children's activities that might be helpful.

Special Congratulations to Sheree, our Nursery Coordinator,
who recently brought home her new baby boy Calvin!
Our Mission is to support families as they grow in Christ by providing children with empathy, love, and Biblical teaching in a safe environment.
 Childcare Staff: Sheree Standefer (Childcare Coordinator) and Lynn Simpson
We are excited to care for your children!
Childcare is available for children ages 0-5 years during Sunday Worship Services (8:00am and 10:30am), Sunday School classes, and many other meetings and activities. 

  • Where is the Nursery?  Our address is 801 E. Main St, between Live Oak and Church St.  The easiest way to find us is to park on the back side of the church (where First Learning Tree preschool is), and as you walk toward the church you will pass through a grey metal gate.  Enter the first door on your right (across from the small outside play area), and the Nursery is the first door on your right.
  • What is your Sign-In / Sign-Out Procedure? For your child's safety, we use a sticker sign-in / sign-out procedure.  You will complete the top section of the sticker and place it on your child's back.  There is another section to place on your child's bag if they have one.  The third section goes with you, and you will need to provide that when you come back to pick up your child. 
  • What information do you need from me?  On your first visit, we will ask you to complete a family registration form
  • Do I have to take my children to the Nursery during the worship service?  Of course not!  Children are always welcome in worship here.  Click here for more information and available resources for children and families in worship.
