Childcare is available in Room 108 on Sunday mornings typically from 9:30am to 12:00pm, and until 2 or 3pm by advance request. If childcare is needed for meetings, classes, or other church-related events, please make a request at least 2 weeks in advance and we will do our best to arrange it.  The more lead time given, the more likely it is that we will be able to find staff available! Please use this form to request childcare.  

Sunday Mornings

Infants and young children have several options on Sunday Mornings:

  • attend service with their parents
  • find a calm and quiet place in the nursery (Room 104) where there is a live feed of the service and room for them to play while parents are in close proximity
  • explore Childcare in Room 108

We have a caring and attentive childcare team who are here on Sunday mornings to provide care for infants-3 years old.  Our vetted and trained childcare team is made up of youth who have grown up in this congregation, adults who have utilized childcare for their own kids, and young adults who are friends of this church and support our mission and vision.  Stories, music, and lots of play!  Parents and Caregivers are asked to sign their child in and out of childcare and introduce themselves and their child(ren) to the staff.

Childcare typically opens 45 minutes before the start of the first service, and continues until 30 minutes past the end of children’s religious education classes.

Typical Hours for Sundays with Two Services:  8:30am – 1:00pm

Typical Hours for Sundays with One Service:   9:30am – 12:00pm

FYI: Parents and Caregivers, there are diaper changing stations in Room 104 and Room 108. Rocking chairs are also available in both rooms for more comfortable spaces for feeding your infants. In 108, there is a monitor where you can view the service. There is a family bathroom near the courtyard doors, and another in the hallway opposite the Childcare room which contains step stools and small child-size toilet rings for your convenience.

Parents' Night Out

Approximately once a month, we offer Parents' Night Out: parents may drop drop their child(ren) off from 5:30 - 8:30pm for playtime, stories, movies, and crafts. Suggested donation is $30 per child (pay as you're able) and registration is required. Watch the Friday Update for dates, and email Stephanie Kimball (kimball@uubloomington.org) for more information.
