Dove Creek believes that the nursery is more than mere babysitting. God is as present in the nursery as He is in the worship service. Jesus said,
“ Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” -Mark 9:36-37
We welcome each child as if we were welcoming the Lord Jesus Himself. We believe a nursery where love is expressed in a warm inviting atmosphere begins to shape the first (and sometimes lasting) feelings a child will have toward God as well as allowing parents to concentrate on worshiping rather than worrying about their children. There is no greater treasure on this side of heaven than the little ones God has given us. We encourage every nursery worker to spend several minutes praying over the children in their care. There is no better way to create an environment of spiritual nurture than to pray while we serve your child in the nursery.
