tinytown nursery

We believe that in the Nursery here at Lima Community “as we are changing diapers….God is changing lives.” We begin at the earliest age layering on God’s love for these precious little ones. Several ways we do this is by praying Bible verses over them as we change diapers, as we rock and comfort the little ones or are sitting on the floor playing we remind them that Jesus loves them & they are special to Him.

Christmas Collection

 Dear Kidstown Families,    We want you to know about a special Christmas collection that we will be doing in all of children’s ministry (birth-5th grade). As we talk with our children about meeting other’s needs and showing compassion, we want to put these words into action by reaching out into our community.    As parents, we all know how important it is to be able to get to work each day and get to those day-to-day places (like the grocery) to provide for our families. We have learned of a ministry in our area called “Wheelhouse” (A Christian Bicycle Cooperative). This ministry provides bikes to people in need of transportation. They work with local agencies to find people who have a true need of transportation to get to work, buy groceries, etc. Not only do they give them a bike, they also want to make sure they have the proper tools to protect themselves and their bikes.    We are going to be “Pedal Partners” with them this Christmas season as we bring in money to help this organization get the helmets, bike locks, and bike lights they need to make sure these bikers are safe. It costs about $20/bike to get these items. Our goal is to collect enough money to help with 100 bikes. That is $2,000.00.    We will begin this collection on November 10th and end on December 23rd. Your children can simply bring their offerings to church with them and give it in their ministry area – tinytown, upTOWN, or DOWNTOWN. We will also have a container at the First Time Family/Secure Check-in Counter where donations can be given.    We will be tracking our progress as we go as we are on our way to reaching our goal. We will have a celebration weekend in the children’s ministry areas on December 29/30 to pray over the people who receive these bikes and supplies and praise God for allowing us to be a part of blessing others.    Please talk with your child about the importance of giving and not simply receiving this Christmas season. We all love to GET gifts, but what a blessing it is to GIVE and reach out to those in need.    Thanks for giving with us this Christmas season!  Pam Little, Kim Watkins, & Cindy Lowry

Frequently Asked Questions

What If my little one needs me during the service?

We will flash the security number you’ve been given on the screen in the sanctuary.

What does my little one need to bring to the nursery?

A bottle or sippy cup, a change of clothes, diapers, pacifier and if they have a “lovey”, you’re encouraged to leave that also.

I'm nursing, am I still able to leave my little one in the nursery?

Certainly! We encourage you to sign them into the age-appropriate Nursery (so you can enjoy the service). When signing them in, please tell us that they nurse and may become hungry during the service. If they become fussy, we will alert you using their security number right away.

My two year old is potty training. Will you take them to the potty?

Yes, we certainly will. But, we ask that you take them potty prior to signing them into their room.

Will my little one get sick in the nursery?

We hope not! We do EVERYTHING we can to insure that our toys are clean and sanitized.
