Children are welcomed in our worship services. However, for the comfort of both caregivers and children, we have nursery care available for smaller children to be able to play and worship in their own ways that are developmentally appropriate.
8:30AM and 11:00AM – Worship And Children’s Church
During worship – all children are invited to come forward and hear a children’s message geared directly to them.
We have worship bags that include coloring sheets and crayons and kid’s Bible story books for those children who may want to have one during the service. Please see an usher in our church lobby to pick one up.
For children 4 years old through 2nd Grade, following this time, Children’s Church is provided. This time engages younger children in activities pertaining to Bible stories, significant holy days within the Christian year, and fun with friends their age. Children’s Church offers an opportunity for our young disciples to learn about worship before becoming fully engaged in our service. Children are invited to attend worship with their family until after the Children’s Moment. Children’s Church is available at both 8:30 and 11:00 services.
Children are invited to serve as ushers and greeters, scripture readers, communion stewards, and acolytes.

The following classes are available to encourage your child’s walk with God and strengthen his or her relationships with other children of God. Classes meet each Sunday morning from 9:45-10:45.
