Nursery

During our service we nursery care is available for children from 3 months to 3 years old.

Children's Church

Children join us for the first half of our 10 AM  Sunday worship service. We are an intergenerational church, and value having the youngest members of the body participate and be included in our worship gathering. Sermon Sacks are available, with activities to help our young ones during the time they are in the service.

Right before the sermon, children in preschool through 2nd grade are dismissed for Children's Church. Parents can pick them up there after the service is over.

Safe Church Plan

We are committed to doing all we can to ensure the safety of the children and youth in our care. Our Christian Education Board has developed a Safe Church Plan for protecting children and youth, which involves a three-part approach to these issues: Screening of all child workers, adequate Supervision of all children and volunteers, and immediate Response and Reporting of any reports of abuse to the proper civic and church authorities.
