Opportunities for Children

Children are welcome in all our worship services. They may also participate in our many children’s activities.  For your child to participate in the Sunday morning activities, please sign them in with a Christian Education volunteer in the back of Maxwell Hall.

     8:00AM & 11:00AM Worship: We encourage children and youth to attend worship with their families. We believe valuable faith development happens sitting in the pews with your families and other congregants. We have provided worship clipboards with

appropriate activities to help your child engage in worship. Nursery workers are in the back of the 8:00AM worship space to aid when needed. During the 11:00AM worship service, nursery is available for children PreK and younger in the Lamb Education Building.

    9:30AM Worship: We both encourage children to attend worship with their families at this service and we offer Sunday School.  Sunday School is available for children 2 years to 5th grade. In our classes, we seek to engage with your child while teaching them the stories of our faith. Nursery is offered for children younger than 2 years. There are more ways for kids to get involved in music and study during the week.
