Asbury Children’s Ministries More Information

Nursery

The nursery is available Sunday mornings from 8:30am to 12:15pm for babies to 3 year old’s who are not potty trained. The nursery is located in the Green Room, in the hallway just outside of the Contemporary Worship Center. We have two caregivers Sunday mornings who are trained in CPR, First Aid, Asbury’s Child and Youth Protection Policy, and have been finger printed.  The nursery features cribs, feeding and rocking chairs, and a large foam play area.

We are excited for you and your family to be at Asbury. If there is anything you need, or have any questions please feel free to contact the church office at asbury@asburycolumbus.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

First time for dropping off your child in the nursery?
Please fill out the Emergency Contact and Photo Release forms when you drop off your child(ren). A nursery caregiver will give you a pager that will be utilized in the event that you are needed in the nursery.

What’s with the pager?
We will page you if you are needed in the nursery. We have found they are less disruptive than coming in and getting you, it also allows us to notify you no matter where you are in the building.

Do I need to leave anything with you?
Please bring in diapers and any food that your children will need for the morning. We provide a snack, toys, highchairs, and cribs/swings.

Please be aware that the nursery staff will provide a snack from Asbury unless given specific written instructions otherwise. Food that is given to the nursery staff should not require refrigeration or heating. However, you are welcome to bring a bag or lunch box that has ice or hot packs.

What forms do I need to fill out?
For safety and privacy reasons we ask that all parents complete the Emergency Contact and Photo Release forms. Forms are available in the nursery.

Where can I nurse or bottle feed?
We welcome you to nurse or bottle feed anywhere at Asbury. We have a Nursing Area located in the Prayer Room (located between the Sanctuary and the doors to the south of the Sanctuary). The door locks for privacy.

Where are the changing tables?
Changing tables are located in the Men’s and Women’s bathrooms upstairs (near the Worship Center), the nursery (Green Room) as well as the Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Purple rooms.

What does Asbury do to protect my children?
At Asbury United Methodist Church, we have a Child and Youth Protection Policy to implement safety measures to demonstrate our absolute and commitment to the physical safety of all of our children and youth. For more information, visit our Child and Youth Protection Policy webpage.
