McIlwain’s nursery is located in the building behind the sanctuary on the corner of 13th and Moreno Street.  We nurture children 6 weeks to 4 years. We utilize qualified paid nursery staff, each of whom has been vetted by interview and background check.  On Sunday mornings and evenings, member volunteers from the congregation spend time with the littles, as well as the paid nursery staff. We provide snacks, drinks, wipes, and only ask that you provide us with the diapers your child will be in and their bottles with formula/milk.  We have toys, which are wiped down and cleaned after each time the nursery is used. There are two separate rooms, one for 6 weeks to 2 years, and the toddler room for 2 years to 4 years.  We also have a sleep/nursing room that staff and ladies only are allowed in.

We believe discipleship starts early, first and most importantly in your own home, but also with the encouragement and resources of the covenant community.  To assist families in this important privilege we feature a Sunday School time for children 18 months to 4 year.  This class begins at 9:30 am; after class is over, we give all the children snacks.  We utilize a pager system. When you drop off your child, we will have you fill out information on them for our staff to keep, and you will sign them in on the sign in sheet with the number of the pager that is handed to you.

I look forward to meeting you and your family!  If you have any other question please email me at

In Christ,

Juli Poole
