G.L.O.W. Nursery

G.L.O.W., Give Little Ones Wisdom, the C.O.C. nursery was established to honor Jesus by teaching and training children at an early age to become followers of Christ.  The foundation Scripture for this ministry is, “Train a child in the way he should go and he will never depart from it”.  (Proverbs 22:6, NIV.)

While their parents are in service, children from infancy to age 5 are nurtured and trained in the nursery by our nursery staff.  All of our nursery workers operate in love, integrity and obedience, and they demonstrate Godly characteristics in performing their jobs.
The children participate in many different activities each week including: Praise and Worship, Memory Verses, Bible Trivia,  and “Make it and Take it” projects, which are works of art that the children create and take home. “Happy Birthday, Jesus” parties are one of the most anticipated activities in this department.  Parents get involved by assisting children in selecting practical and useful gifts, like diapers, wipes, crayons, books and toys which are used throughout the year in the nursery.

We try to use our imagination along with the direction of the Holy Spirit in our ministry.  Every 3-5 minutes the activities are changed to maintain the children’s.  Different activities such as floor games, coloring, puzzles and occasionally a little outdoor exploring are rotated. GLOW is far from being dull, for the children and the workers!
Each year we look forward to the children’s participation in the Resurrection Extravaganza and the Christmas Play. These productions are truly amazing!  The Summer Vacation Bible School is also a big hit.  It includes the 3-5 year olds and is Bible-based. The kids love learning and receiving all the goodies that are provided for them there. 
As our church grows; this department allows its workers to be creative so that they can continue to meet the growing needs of our children. G.L.O.W. welcomes all workers who have the desire to love, nurture and teach children Christ-like principles.  It is quite a moving experience to witness a child’s journey from infancy to a self-disciplined loving child of God. 

Jesus loves children as He so clearly demonstrated when He told His disciples in Mark’s Gospel “Do not hinder the children from the kingdom of God because it belongs to them also.” Our children experience that love at G.L.O.W.
