Infant baptism with pastors and parents.

Begins Sunday, September 12

Manchester UMC’s Nursery Ministry provides loving, nurturing care for children ages six weeks to three years. Developmentally appropriate toys and activities help them experience God’s love in a Christian environment. Our goal is to make their church experience a positive one from their very first day.

The nursery is open on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

Childcare is available in the nursery for:

  • Infants who are 6 weeks to 18 months old
  • Toddlers who are 18 months old and turning two after August 1
  • Two year olds who turn two by August 1

To request child care, please complete the Request Child Care form below.

Sunday Morning Nursery Care

The nursery is available for children ages two and under for members and visitors during the 9:30 and 11:00 worship services. Little ones will join the infant room if they are not yet walking and move to the toddler room when they are steady on their feet. In September, children two years old by August 1st will be promoted from the toddler room to Sunday school.

Childcare for Manchester UMC Ministries

At times during the week, there is a need for childcare so that parents can participate in Bible study, as well as attend classes and meetings. A minimum of two Safe Gatherings Certified childcare workers/volunteers, who are knowledgeable in providing developmentally appropriate activities, in a safe and happy environment, will care for your child. Reservations should be made one week in advance by ministry leaders for those individuals requesting care.
