Child Protection Policy

We're dedicated to providing a safe and loving environment in which Cherrydale’s little ones can be led to Christ.

To protect our children, we conduct background checks on all leaders, have a security check-in system for nursery through sixth grade, and abide by our Child Protection Policy. You’ll receive additional training on our Child Protection Policy when you begin serving in our ministry.

Nursery Training Videos

Prepare to serve in our nursery

We ask that all our nursery staff watch a series of training videos before your first day of serving in the nursery. Volunteers are also asked to attend regular training sessions.

Join our team!

Whether you can commit to serving once a month or every Sunday, we invite you to be a part of God's ministry to children.

A variety of service opportunities are available to those called to serve in the Children’s Ministry, including classroom teachers, helpers, worship leaders, supervisors, and craft & curriculum helpers. All adults who work directly with children must:

  • be a member of Cherrydale Baptist Church,
  • have attended the church for at least 6 months,
  • submit an application form, and
  • undergo a background check.

We also encourage teens to serve our church family during the 9:15 am service:

  • Teens in 7th grade and up may serve in the one-, two-, and three-year old rooms.
  • Teens who are 16 or older may also serve in the infant room.
