At St. James we offer quality childcare during all worship services, small groups, Bible studies, and events. Children are welcome in the nursery from birth to age 3. At the age of three, children are promoted to The FORT.

When you check your child into the nursery, you will receive a pager that can be used to contact you. In the event your child or the nursery staff needs you, the pager will vibrate and blink. This pager is also used to check your child out of the nursery. Without the properly numbered pager, no one can pick up your child.

All leaders and volunteers in the nursery must participate in Safe Sanctuary training and complete a nationwide criminal background check.


 What is Safe Sanctuary training?
Luke 18:15-17 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
