The infant and toddler ministry is for our littlest worshipers, ages birth through 3 years. This ministry allows family and friends to attend our corporate worship services with the comfort of knowing their children are in a safe and loving environment. We provide our nursery during Sunday Small Groups and the 10:15 Contemporary Worship service.
In the infant room, we demonstrate Christ’s love for children through our volunteers, who provide a safe and clean environment where the children can play. We believe babies are not too young to have the Word of God spoken over them. Therefore, your child will be ministered to while we care for them.
Toddlers and Three-Year-Olds
The two and three-year-olds begin learning Bible stories, as well as the concepts of friendship and helping by observing the actions of our volunteers. Each class will have scheduled time, a snack and a Bible activity.
Room Assignments for Infants and Toddlers;

Dedicating and Baptism
We believe children born to believing parents are a special gift from God and set apart for Him. If your child is ready to be baptized or discuss salvation or you’d like to dedicate your child, please contact the church office. Learn more about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Water Baptism.
Please e-mail us or call the church office at 815.521.1381.
We take the safety of children very seriously. Parents are placing their most valuable possession in our care. It is our responsibility to return each child safely to their parent at the end of each service.
- All of our volunteers and teachers have gone through an application process and interview. For added safety and security, we run background checks on all teachers and volunteers. They have also received basic children’s ministry training.
- We follow a strict check-in check-out procedure. This ensures a child always leaves with the same person who brought them. It also enables communication during the service with the parent/guardian if needed.
