At Sierra Vista UMC, it is important to us to provide a safe, warm, and loving environment for our youngest members so that their parents and caregivers can feel free to worship and learn without worry.  In our efforts to maintain this goal, we utilize paid, trained staff, alongside loving volunteers in our nursery area.

The nursery ministry serves children up to kindergarten age during church worship services.  For special events, ages allowed in the Nursery are expanded as needed.

During the Saturday contemporary worship service, Nursery care is available, and, during the two morning worship services at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. on Sundays, the Nursery is open for your children to enjoy fellowship and play. Also, during the Church’s normal Sunday school hour (9:45 to 10:45 a.m.), toddler and preschool children are led in Bible-centered and age-appropriate Sunday school lessons. 

As a courtesy, we furnish wipes and snacks, including goldfish crackers, animal crackers, water or 100% juice (diluted).  Any allergies or preferences are noted and cared for.  Our nursery staff is trained in First Aid and CPR, as well as the Child Safety Policy of Sierra Vista UMC.  

If you need more information about our nursery or you would like to be blessed by volunteering your time in this area, please contact Jennifer Hedges at or (325)944-4041.
