The purpose of the nursery ministry is to allow the church body to use their talents and spiritual gifts to support godly parenting, to give kids meaningful biblical keepsakes of what they have learned for years to come, and to promote eternal happiness by constantly introducing them to Jesus and helping them find an indestructible joy in Christ.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalms 127:3-5 ESV)
