The nursery (four months – 24 months) is the launching pad for nurturing the faith in the next generation. Our desire for our infants at College Park Church is that they would hear the truths of God at an early age. We pray that this would help start building their foundation of faith that will continue to be built upon throughout their life. Our disciple-makers show our infants and toddlers God’s love by providing a place of prayer where children hear Bible truth statements, Bible stories, and begin memorizing Scripture.
The curriculum that is taught in our Nursery is Children Desiring God: A Sure Foundation. This curriculum is designed to transform our Nursery and Toddler Ministry into a place of prayer for young children, where they will hear foundational Bible stories, learn simple Bible truths, and begin to memorize Scripture.
When you drop your child off in their classroom, you’ll see 12 canvases hanging on the wall. Each shows one of the Bible truths that are repeated often to children in the nursery. To reinforce at home, please see the list of Bible truths.
In the nursery and toddler classrooms, our children start memorizing one verse a month. We believe that starting to speak the Word to our young children is important. These verses are designed to help nurture our infants growth in the truth and help build a foundation for them to stand on. Parents will be given a printed copy of the memory verses to reinforce memorization and application at home. Memory Verses for Toddlers
