Ministry with Children
Children are an important part of our community...
- On Sunday mornings we have two paid and screened nursery attendants who watch over the little ones age four and under during worship (though infants and kids of all ages are also VERY welcome to stay with their families throughout the whole service).
- Our nursery is located in Mission Hall. It is well stocked with toys and games to keep your children busy while you worship.
Children in Worship
- We love when children worship God!
- We have worship bags available in the Narthex of the church, filled with puzzles, colors, and other activities to help keep your children's attention during the service.
- During worship we have a children’s sermon during which kids are invited to come to the front of the church to hear a special message from the pastor (a parent or older sibling is welcome to accompany them if nervous).
- The children will be given an age appropriate bulletin during the children's sermon with activities for them.
