Jefferson Park will hopefully feel like a family gathering where new comers are always welcome. So come as you are. We think you’ll find the atmosphere welcoming but if the people sitting beside you don’t introduce themselves it might be because they’re new here too!
We are a group of people who come from all walks of life. Some of us are students, some of us are professionals, some are older and some are younger. You’ll see a few guys wearing suits, a few more people wearing t-shirts and jeans, and most people will be somewhere in between.
It is our goal to see our congregational music increasingly reflect our continue growth in the gospel of Christ. While our musical style could be considered “simple,” the theme of the songs we sing always remains the same. We always sing about God the Father and the great redemption story he has unfolded through His Son Jesus Christ. Not only do we try to sing songs that are old and new, but we try to choose music that speaks to Christians in all of the seasons of life.
Each week we give the best part of our time together to the preaching of the Bible. This kind of preaching is committed to explaining what the verses of scripture teach and how they apply to our daily lives (often referred to as “expositional” or “exegetical”). This is not a time for the preacher to vent his own opinions or preferences. Rather it is an opportunity for all of us to hear from God as His word is faithfully explained, illustrated, and applied. However, having said this, we would not want to give you the impression that this is just an academic Bible lecture. We believe that at its best preaching comes with the power and presence of Almighty God, Himself. It is knowing God himself that we are seeking as we listen to the preaching.
We strive to provide a safe, caring place for children three and under. The nursery is available on Sundays and Wednesdays when our church body meets. Children in the nursery enjoy free play time, songs, rhymes, stories, and a light snack.
Please label all items to help us keep track of them.
If you would like your baby (pre-walker) to have a snack or drink please include it in your diaper bag. If your child needs a meal please try to feed them before you place them in the nursery.
Please follow these guidelines when you check your child into the nursery:
There is a Nursing Room available for mothers who prefer a private place to nurse, ask the Nursery Hostess for more information.
If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he should be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming to the nursery. If your child has a continually runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies, please let us know.
Caregivers are not allowed to give children medication of any kind.
Our goal is for all our babies to remain healthy! Please be considerate of others.
There are many ways to help in the Nursery and we would love for you to be a part of our ministry!
JPBC strives to be a family-friendly church as we encourage families to sit together in our worship services. Children learn how to worship through their regular participation and involvement in our services.
If this is practically not the best option for your family, a nursery is available for younger children (under age of 4) during the Sunday 10:45 am service. JPBC also has a “Training Room” where parents who find their children to be distracting to others and who wish to worship together can sit in a room with other families while listening and watching the Sunday morning sermon.
Under “Resources” at the top, there’s a link to our weekly bulletin, updated on Friday afternoons.
