Children in Worship

We believe that children belong in worship. When you worship together in a regular way, God is part of the family. Children receive a special welcome:

  • Sunday services with a children’s message.
  • Activity bags stuffed with soft toys, books, and crayons are available.
  • Staffed childcare is available on Sundays as needed.
  • Audio of the service can be heard in gathering areas, if your child needs a break from worship.
  • Children’s choirs add special joy to worship.

Nursery care is provided during all Sunday morning worship services for children ages six weeks to three years. The Nursery is located upstairs from the Parish Life Center and to the right of the Sanctuary in our early childhood wing.
