In growing God's kingdom, we need to reach out to His kids. Think for a moment about the influence from television, music, and the Internet. The secular world has our children as an audience 7-days a week. By sharing God's Word, we give His kids the armor to stand up boldly in this world with the knowledge they are loved by God and teach them what God expects of them. Together, as a team, we can build His Kingdom and reach His kids! For more information on children's ministry, call Karen Ahn, 770-448-4142, X116.
NURSERY MINISTRY (BIRTH - AGE 2 BY 9/1)
Growing in God's Garden:
Butterflies (Birth-1 year), Ladybugs (13 mos. - 2 years) and Fireflies (25 mos. - 3 years)
Our children are greeted each Sunday morning by our loving paid staff. They, along with many talented volunteers, provide a safe and nurturing experience for our little ones. The Fireflies have a Sunday school lesson during the 9:30 am hour. Lifetime friendships begin here ... come join us!
Nursery is available 8:45 am - 12:15 pm weekly for children birth - 3 years.
A Nursery for children birth - 5 years is provided on occasion for special evening service. However, since most of the evening services are "family friendly," click on the NFUMC Calendar button at the bottom of this page to see if Nursery is available on the date of the service.
