Hi! I’m happy you found our Nexus Kids’ page. I’m Hilary D’Elia, Family Ministries Coordinator for Nexus Church. Let me tell you a little about myself and Nexus Kids:
When I was a little girl, I would’ve loved to have someone regularly remind me who I am – a beautiful creation of Creator God, loved and wholly accepted, no matter what. Instead I grew up thinking God was a distant deity, mildly concerned about my life. When I did stumble upon the Christian faith at the age of 19, I eagerly dove into Christian church life, evangelical ministries & missions, regular Bible studies, charismatic prayer and a heaping pile of guilt, shame and religiosity. The result: a strong dislike for Christianity, organized church culture and the overwhelming sense of constantly being judged. Refreshing waters were nary to be found – the dry desert of ‘faith-life’ left me parched.
Close to giving up on finding a healthy church to call home, Nexus Church provided a safe space to wrestle and find my footing on the path of Christ. I am happily, no, joyously, planted in the soil Nexus has tilled for many a weary, wandering soul. I have room to grow, flourish even. I have the most precious gift in leading our young ones, hoping to help them reach and stretch and grow towards the Light of Life – Christ Jesus. My desire for Nexus Kids’ is to create a safe space for spiritual growth using spiritual direction and storytelling, guiding our children along the path of Christ. My prayer for these young ones is for deep inner peace found through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

- PARK your car in the parking garage directly behind the Museum (entrance on Duke Street). IT’S FREE on Sundays . Enter THE MUSEUM building toward the north end of the garage and you can walk directly onto the 3rd floor of THE MUSEUM and come down to the front desk.
- SIGN IN by letting the front desk know you’re here for Nexus Kids. Then come downstairs and we will greet you at the bottom of the stairs with our sign-in table.
- PICK UP the same way you signed in! Let the front desk know you’re coming down to gather your Nexus Kid and we will sign you out
