Nursery Frequently Asked Quetions

Still have questions? drop us an email or contact Kirsten Scheel, Early Childhood Coordinator, at (901) 531-6178.

Early Childhood

It’s never too early to introduce your child to the love of Jesus. Long before they can write their names or recite the alphabet, these little ones can take their first steps in a lifelong journey of faith. The preschool ministry is reflective of our desire to join with you, their parents and church family, to ignite their desire for the Lord.

Sunday School classes meet from 9:45-10:45am in the C Basement. See locations below.

  • Pre-K: Room C101

Wednesday Nights

Cherub & Music Makers Choirs
  • On Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:30pm, we have a wide range of choir offerings for children of all ages to broaden their knowledge of Christ's love for them through music. The choirs lead worship in several Sunday services throughout the year and perform a musical in the spring. Learn more and register.

Catechism

One of the ways we teach our preschool children about the love of Jesus is by learning the catechism together. You can join us in this endeavor by encouraging your children to practice them at home! Read the preschool catechism questions.

Elementary

Through Bible teaching and nurturing relationships, we seek to help children in elementary school develop a solid Christian worldview to guide them through the coming years.

Nursery

The Nursery is open for all services, MidWeek program classes, Sunday School, and morning Bible studies. Our mission is to be a safe place where every child and parent sees the love of God in the people who care for them, causing all to have a greater desire to know Him and serve in His church.

Connect

Connect is a great way for 2nd–5th graders to connect with our church, each other, awesome leaders, and to God's Word through music, games, and Bible lessons! We meet on Wednesdays, 6:15-7:30pm, in the Youth lobby.

Worship

We love for kids to join us in corporate worship. We have a time during the service where kids can come down front for a children's sermon. Families can take their younger ones to the nursery after this part of the service.

Shine

All children are a gift from the Lord, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Our Shine special needs ministry strives to effectively communicate the gospel to individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities and to eliminate barriers that prevent their families from living in community with the body of Christ. Visit 2pc.org/shine to learn more!

Children’s Choirs

On Wednesday nights, children have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Christ's love for them through music by learning great hymns of the faith, memorizing scripture, recognizing music symbols and notes, and playing musical instruments.

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings, our children are encouraged to participate in Sunday School between services, at 9:45am. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to grow in their knowledge of who God is and who He created them to be. For a full list of classes and locations, see below.

Volunteer

From nursery during worship services and Sunday School to Connect on Wednesday nights and special events, it takes hundreds of volunteers each year to serve our youngest worshippers at Second.

There are a variety of ways to serve with our Children's Ministry—once a month, bi-monthly, every Sunday, and only for special events (VBS, Family Fun Night, etc.). We need Sunday School teachers, nursery desk workers, Connect discipleship leaders, and more, and we'd love to discuss the options with you!

Questions? Contact Calvin Ellis at 901-500-5056 or .

God calls parents to be the primary vision-casters for their children by making Him the center of family life. 
The church as a whole shares in the awesome responsibility of instructing our children.
One way we do that is by providing resources for families.
