What do other churches ask of their workers? Engage the kids in play, or just watch & keep them safe and happy till the service is over? Any opinions as to which method is preferable and why?
That nursery programs hold this much intergenerational ministry potential is often overlooked in churches where nursery is viewed as the hard to staff, catch all for kids who can’t be, or don’t want to be, in worship.
Dear Church Nursery Volunteer, I'd like to express my specific thanks for just a few of the things you do. . .
The basis/theology of worship is immersing children in the love of Christ and Church from the earliest age.
