Infants and Toddlers"...and let the little children come." Jesus said it best -
kids are terrific, precious, eternal and ... active!
Midland Park CRC is committed to providing your children with a safe and secure environment. Our Infant and Toddler Nurseries will care for your children while you participate in the morning worship service.
Children of all ages are welcome in our worship services, but if parents and children need a break, we offer nursery care for infants through age three during the morning worship service. Loving church members provide a pleasant experience for your children in our fully equipped nurseries. Parents, we want you to have the freedom to worship each Sunday; you are not expected to volunteer in the nursery unless you’d like to. Children may come to the nursery before worship or at any point during the service. Greeters and ushers will be happy to direct you to our nursery rooms.
Coordinators: Ellie King, Sheryl Pierce, Alissa Leegwater
Date/time: Sundays 9:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Infant Nursery (birth through walking) – Main Floor
Toddler Nursery (walking through 3 years) -- Main Floor
For children ages four through kindergarten who find it difficult to sit through the entire Sunday morning worship service, Children’s Worship meets during the second half of the service. This ministry provides a fun, relaxed environment where children experience God’s love for them in a time of friendship and fun that reinforces the message that God loves and welcomes every child. Through music and Bible stories, trained leaders help foster relational and spiritual growth.
For your children's security and your peace of mind, we ask that parents register each child who will be attending Children's Worship prior to the worship service.

Baptism is an important sacrament, instituted by Christ as a sign and seal of God’s covenant promises to His people.
As a mark of inclusion in a covenant relationship with God, baptism is given to new believers in the church. It is also given to children of believers, just as the Old Testament sign of the covenant (circumcision) was applied to believers’ children, since God recognizes them as part of His covenant community and sharers in the covenant promises.
When an adult believer comes for baptism, or believing parents present their children for baptism, the church celebrates God’s promises in Christ, and members commit themselves to help nurture covenant children and new believers in the faith.
Parents of children being baptized likewise acknowledge at the time of the baptism their important calling and responsibility to nurture their children in the Lord. They publicly promise to teach their children to follow Christ and serve Him wholeheartedly throughout their lives, even as they, as covenant parents, seek to model such devotion to Christ. To support them in this high calling, children’s ministries as well as training and support for parents play a very important role in our church’s ministry.
