Fort Nursery Ministry
At Fort Baptist, our littles are a key part of our church; we value their presence and the opportunity to teach them the love of Christ. We provide a safe place where our babies and toddlers can come and learn about Jesus Christ. We want to support parents and guardians through teaching the truths found in Scripture in order to provide children with a biblical foundation for building their lives upon.
What to Expect
First, when you enter the Church, we have a welcome table to the left of the sanctuary entrance. You will meet a Fort Kids' worker at the welcome table and they will help you check your child into our system. They will provide you with instructions on how to pick up your child at the end of the service.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
Second, children 0-5 years of age will be taken to the Fort Nursery Room (Mothering Room) with our Fort Nursery volunteers for a time of play and fellowship. Parents/Guardians may also choose to stay in the Fort Nursery Room with their child(ren). The Fort Nursery Room provides the ability to hear and view the service with a sound proof glass window and speakers.
Third, safety is a priority at Fort Kids and we strive to create a safe place for our children and adults to worship. Our Fort Nursery Ministry workers have updated background checks and are trained to work in the Fort Nursery Ministry. Training is a priority at Fort Baptist, and we require year round training sessions for our Fort Nursery Ministry workers. Fort Baptist keeps the building and all rooms safe and secure. On a Sunday morning, you can expect 2-3 helpers in the nursery, usually consisting of 1 adult and 1-2 of our older youth girls.
