services at the Merrimack County Nursing Home. MCNH has a Yamaha

that or have an instrument you can bring to MCNH; we ask that you
prayerfully consider joining this ministry. Please see Charlie
Jaworski, or Bill Cunningham if interested.
People are needed to clean the church and to snow blow the walk ways
after storms. Please see the sign up lists on the bulletin board in
the Fellowship Hall.

An Important Word from our Deacons
Along with the blessing of the growing numbers of young children at
SGF, there have been a few challenges that have been presented for our
nursery. Because of the limitations in both staffing and size of our
present room we are having to make a couple of requests.
Just as the Sunday School ministry is very important for our Pre-K and
up children, the nursery is a great ministry for the parents of
infants and toddlers at the church. With this being said, we are
requesting that children over the age of 4 not attend nursery. Having
older children in this very small room can make it hard for our
littlest attendees to feel comfortable. It also makes the room over
crowded and unsafe. Because of this, we are also asking that parents
drop off their children and not stay in the nursery during the
service. If the child is not comfortable staying in the room alone or
becomes uncomfortable during the service, one of the nursery staff
will be happy to bring the child out to sit with their parents for the
remainder of the service.
Another request that we have is for parents to bring children to the
rest room before dropping them off to nursery. Although this may seem
like a trivial thing, it can at times be very difficult to bring a
child to the rest room leaving just one worker to watch all the
remaining children. So going forward if a child needs to go to the
rest room, one of the nursery workers will come and get the parents so
we can have two workers in the nursery for as much of the service as
One final request is for parents to pick up their children from
nursery as soon as possible after the service has ended. It is
impossible for the nursery workers to bring all the children to their
parents, and a lot of these volunteers also teach Sunday School and
have to get set up for that in a short time frame.
Thank you in advance to all parents and all who help out with this
ministry. Hopefully these changes will help us to continue to give our
youngest children the best possible care, and in return allow parents
to be able to be a part of the service with fewer distractions. If you
have any questions or concerns please see one of the deacons. We will
be more than willing to help with any issues we can.
Thank you all again for your help in this matter,
