Safety in the Nursery | The safety of our children is very important to us. The caregivers in our nursery are paid staff who have completed Ministry Safe training, completed a Criminal Background Check and are CPR/First Aid trained.
Children in Worship
Children in Worship | An important component of raising children in the Christian faith is inviting them to experience worship. We welcome children of all ages in worship, wiggles and all. If, however, you need to excuse yourself there is a Family Room located in the back of the sanctuary. The Family Room can be accessed through the double doors of the Narthex across from the Nursery. Ushers will be happy to help you find the room. In the Family Room you can see and hear worship.
