The nursery is available for children up to 36 months during worship services, the Sunday School hour, Bible studies and other special events. A cry room with a rocking chair and toys is also available, in the balcony of the sanctuary, during all worship services.

The children will then leave through the back of the sanctuary and attend Children's Church with Pastor Kim in the Education wing of the Fellowship Hall.
