  5. 5. What’s the most important room in our church? The Nursery! That’s right, the Nursery! A key element of our vision is to reach families in the Holland area with the gospel and a well rounded balance of opportunities for spiritual growth. Studies show that parents make their decision to stay at a church because of the quality of preaching, friendliness, and most importantly — the Nursery! Our Nursery is central to our mission. If you have a heart for sharing the love of Jesus with the “littlest of these,” then we want you to be a part of our Nursery ministry! Please consider helping during one of our regular services. You can expect to serve once about every 2-3 months. If you want to become a part of this special ministry that really makes a difference, then fill out this reply today!
