We are delighted that the nursery has reopened for the 10:10 a.m. worship service only.
What ages will the nursery serve?
3 months to 3 year olds
What time will the nursery open?
How do I register my child for the nursery?
You will have this option when you register for worship in ChurchLife.
Where is the nursery located?
The baby/crawler nursery is at the end of the wing to the right as you enter the Palmer Building. The toddler/2s/3s are in Room 103 across the hall from them. This is a different location than it was in previously as we are not sharing space with the preschool at this time.
My teenager wants to volunteer in the nursery. How do they sign up?
We are not currently utilizing volunteers in the nursery.
What are your COVID Protocols?
We have several safety precautions in place. For more details, please click here to read the nursery plan.
Faith @ Home
You must sign up for both the kit and the event on Church Life.
You can sign up to receive a kit even if you will not be at the event.
We are providing families with resources to do faith at home. On September 13, we will have an outdoor, socially-distanced kickoff event for families with children 5th grade and under.
This will happen at the same time as the youth gathering. At the kickoff, you will receive your Faith at Home kit, learn how to use it, and have some socially-distanced fellowship with other families. The Faith at Home kit will have EVERYTHING you need for the remaining weeks in the month, and there will be an optional companion video that will guide you through the story and activities each week. The goal is for this to be as EASY and STRESS-FREE as possible for parents, while being engaging for kids.
SMPC is home to some of the strongest Scouting programs in North Carolina. Opportunities are available for young people of all ages, from kindergarten (Daisy Girl Scouts) or 1st grade (Tiger Cub Scouts) to age 18.
