We need people to run the computer, soundboard, or cameras for both morning worship services. Just mark the box on the sign-up sheet for any part of the A/V ministry with which you are willing to help. (If needed, training will be provided.) Please list Sundays you can’t serve in the “Scheduling Requests” box. There is also a box to mark if you want to be removed from the A/V schedule. If you are currently helping with our A/V ministry and don’t want anything changed, you don’t need to sign up again unless you need to list Sundays you can’t serve. Any questions? See Pastor Vince or Jonathan Pletcher. Last day to sign up is April 21st


 * There is an unstaffed nursery for babies located on the same floor as the sanctuary that may be used at any time.

* For the 10:30 Worship Service, we have a staffed nursery downstairs in room 1 for children up through the age of 3.

* Feel free to use the downstairs nursery even if it is not staffed.

* Both nurseries have a closed circuit TV through which you can watch the worship service.

Jr. Church (8:15 & 10:30 Worship Services)

 * We offer a Jr. Church program during both morning worship services downstairs in the social room for children age 3 up to and including 6th grade.

 Should my 3 year-old be in the nursery or Jr. Church?

 * If your child is going to turn 4 before September 1st, your child should be in Jr. Church.

* If your child is going to turn 4 on or after September 1st, your child should be in the nursery until the first Sunday in September of this year.

* If you would like your 3 year-old to be in Jr. Church before he/she is supposed to be in Jr. Church, then you need to stay with your child during Jr. Church each Sunday until a leader says it is okay to leave.

Sunday School (9:30)

* We have classes for children (beginning when they are old enough to walk), youth, and adults. If your child is not old enough to walk, feel free to take him/her with you to your class. For more info, please see either the Sunday School brochure or the Welcome Packet. They are located in the pew rack and on a table in the hallway.
