Families and children are central to the Manteno Church of the Nazarene and our ministry. With a children's center that was built specifically to help minister to children and their families, we have worked to create a safe space for children and their families. We offer programs and weekly events for children of all ages, and safety is a priority here: we do an in-depth security check-in system to keep your children's safety first! We require that all adults complete background checks to ensure that children are safe while we get the awesome opportunity to teach them about Jesus.

We have church and Sunday school programs for children of all ages: infants through one years of age, preschool (2-3 years and 4-5 years), and K-4th grade. We also offer Safe Harbor, a program for special abilities children who need a safe place that meets their needs. And because we believe parents should have every opportunity to be involved, we also offer tools for you to take home. We want to inspire, equip, and support you to be the parents God has called you to be as you spirtually nurture your kids!
