      • We have a variety of options for children during the main service time if you prefer to have your child attend an age-based class.
        • The nursery is available for children ages Pre-k and younger throughout the entire service and children can be dropped off at any time.
        • Children’s Church is available for children ages 5 years old through 4th grade during the worship service. If you want your child(ren) to join you for worship in the sanctuary, there will be an opportunity for them to be dismissed to their class after worship (during announcements). A Children’s Ministry volunteer will guide the children to their classes. Once a month, the children will have their own corporate worship with each other at the beginning of class time.
        • 5th/6th grade meet together and open with a time of prayer and then move into their lesson.  They are currently conducting an overview of every book of the Bible using videos from The Bible Project to kick-start the lesson. 5/6th graders do not meet on the first Sunday of the month, but join their parents in the service for communion.
        • A Nursing Mothers room is available, via the nursery, with the service broadcast into the room.
      • Children of all ages are welcome in the sanctuary.  If they become a little fussy or restless and might be a distraction to others around you, please consider taking advantage of the service being broadcast on the screen in the foyer.
