"Lo, children are the heritage from the lord." - Psalm 127:3

It is the goal of Hampstead Baptist Church Nursery Care Ministry to provide a loving, safe and healthy environment for each child while in our care. We believe that the purpose of our nursery is to provide a spiritual foundation for the children while allowing parents, grandparents, siblings and caregivers the opportunity to worship, learn and fellowship during all classes and worship services. The primary responsibilities in this ministry are to show each child the love of Jesus in everything, to pray for each child that they may come to know Him at the earliest age possible, to be an example to the children of how to be Christ-like, and to care for each child as if they were out own.


Our nursery team is made up of more than 70 volunteers serving our HBC family during four different service times each week. In addition they serve during special events and special services throughout the year. We ask that all parents who use the nursery prayerfully consider serving in the Nursery Care Ministry of Hampstead Baptist Church. Anyone interested in serving in this ministry, please contact our nursery coordinator.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 4:10-11
