Children are an important part of our congregation. Jesus wanted children near him. They are not just the church of the future but part of the present body of Christ.  

We welcome children in all worship services. God put the wiggle in children...don't feel like you need to suppress this in God's house. Check with an usher for an activity bag.

Children are invited to begin the day upstairs in the worship service.  After Children's Time the children will go to Sunday School downstairs. All of our Sunday School volunteers are Safe-Sanctuary trained and have had a background check.

During the 10:00am service, a nursery is provided for infants and toddlers 2 and under. It is located downstairs. We have a paid certified staff member and a Safe-Sanctuary trained and background checked volunteer in the nursery each Sunday morning.

children's sunday school

Sunday School meets downstairs in the Double Classroom. Children begin in the church service and go downstairs together after Children's Time. On Communion Sundays we will come back to the sanctuary for communion with our families. Our two and younger friends are welcome to spend the morning in the church nursery, also downstairs. This school year we will be learning about some of the ABCs of God!
