Nursery (Baby Bottle)Help Needed in the Church Nursery:  We need help “staffing" our nursery.  It is very important for parents to be able to bring an infant or young toddler to a clean, staffed nursery.  It would be great to have 10 or 12 people sign up, thus having to take turns only 4 or 5 times a year.  PLEASE, let me know (eg, by contacting the church office) if I can put you on the list!  Many thanks!
