Christ Church Nursery
from 8:45am – 11:45am
Newborn – Pre-K
The Nursery Ministry program is an extension of the nurturing and loving atmosphere that all children experience while at Christ Church Tulsa. Our nursery is staffed with professional caregivers who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for each child. They have undergone background checks, are Red Cross certified in first aid and CPR, and have received and remain current in the Episcopal Diocese’s Safeguarding God’s Children training.
Nursery Mission Statement
- To provide safe, secure, loving care for children birth thru 4 years of age while parents attend to their own spiritual needs.
- To partner with parents in laying strong foundations for lifelong love of Jesus and His Church.
We believe learning begins at birth. The core belief of the Christian faith is that we are loved unconditionally by God, this is the bedrock of faith. Our hope is by the time the child reaches grade school we will have laid a firm foundation for a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Commonly Asked Questions:
What should I pack in my child’s diaper bag?
The church recommends bringing a small diaper bag or sack that contains:
- One or two bottles, as needed
- Extra disposable diapers
- Pacifier, if used
- Change of clothes
- Your child’s favorite comfort item (i.e. blanket)
Please label all belongings to ensure their return.
What safety procedures does the church comply with?
The church follows Safeguarding God’s Children guidelines in order to provide an environment that is as safe as possible. For more information, a Safe Guarding God’s Children brochure is available in the church office.
The church conducts quarterly room safety checks to ensure the rooms, equipment and toys are safe.
Is there adequate supervision in the nursery?
Each nursery room has at least two paid staff members every Sunday. Staff members are hired only after thorough interview and criminal background checks. They attend training on church policies/procedures. We strive to have the same staff in the same room every Sunday.
What are the church’s emergency procedures?
Staffers will page parents in the event of a non-emergency injury. An injury report will be filed with the church office.
Children will be evacuated to the north parking lot in the event of fire. Parents can meet children at this parking lot. Please do not attempt to pick up your child at the classroom, as this will hinder the evacuation process. Fire procedures are located inside each classroom door.
Parents are to follow the pastoral instructions in the event of a tornado. Children will be taken to the bathrooms across the Parish Activity Center. Parents can pick up children once they have returned to their classroom.
How can I help?
Parents can volunteer in the nursery classrooms on a rotating basis. Sign up in the church office.
What should I do if I have any additional questions, comments or concerns?
Our goal is to ensure that parents are comfortable leaving their children in the care of the nursery staff during Sunday school, church services and other events. For more information, call the church office at 918-299-7510.

Summer camp at St. Crispin’s is an excellent way for kids to enjoy the summer and have a fulfilling spiritual experience at the same time!
