Haven Church has many programs and ministries that are focused on growing our children in Christ. Our prayer is that your child grows in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ as they participate in these groups. We also pray that they are enabled to then share the good news of Jesus to others that do not know Him.

Care for infants through age four is provided during Sunday services, Wednesday night activities, and other special church events. Nursery attendees are trained, have gone through criminal background checks, and desire to provide a loving and nurturing environment for your little ones. You, as a parent or guardian, will receive a pager when your child is signed into the nursery.  You will be paged if your child needs any care, including diaper changes and excessive crying. Our desire is to provide a loving and caring environment while you are worshiping or participating in Haven activities. Learn more »
Children in Worship
