 * 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.

 Want to know more about our church?
