We want your child’s first impressions of Jesus and His church to be positive! In the Awesome Adventure nursery, your child will experience God’s love and hear biblical truths designed to provide a foundation they can build on as they grow.
Children receive lots of loving care and attention in the Awesome Adventure nursery. A wide assortment of age-appropriate toys, games, books, music and puzzles give children an opportunity to interact with their caregivers and peers, enjoy purposeful play, and develop their motor skills.
Our secure nursery area is located on the upper level of the church, outside the sanctuary. An infant care room is located directly off the nursery lobby with comfortable rockers and a monitor so that caregivers can watch the worship service there.

Beginning when children are approximately 18 months old, we teach simple interactive Bible lessons using a monthly theme to give them a foundational understanding of important truths they can build on as they grow.
Over the course of a year, they will learn:
God Created the World
God Created Me
God is our Provider
God Gave us Jesus (Jesus’ Birth)
God Gave us the Bible
God Gave us the Church
God is our Rescuer (Jesus’ Death & Resurrection)
God is All-Powerful
God is All Good
God is All Knowing and All Wise
God is Our King (He is in Charge)
God is our Faithful Friend
Awesome Adventure is for all children, even those who face special challenges on their adventure. We have a coordinator who helps these children and families join the adventure by partnering them with Adventure Guide buddies and meeting with parents to discuss specific needs.
West Shore Free Church takes our responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment for children very seriously. We have implemented a safety and security policy that protects children and reassures parents and includes:
If you’re concerned about your children becoming upset when you leave them, the caregivers will work with you to find the best way to comfort them. In most cases, crying stops a few moments after parents leave and fussing becomes less common with regular attendance. If a child continues to cry after five or ten minutes, we contact the parents using their cellphone.
