Nursery

Nursery care is provided on Sunday mornings for infants and young children, available at 9:00 AM until 12:15 PM. IF a special event follows the morning worship service, nursery care will be extended. The nursery is also available during our regularly scheduled choir and hand bell rehearsals. Nursery staff are CPR certified. The nursery can be requested for other events throughout the week.

Please contact Megan Jones if you would like the nursery to be available during a weekly event, Bible study, meeting, or rehearsal.

Children are dismissed from the 10:30 AM worship service directly following the Children’s Message. Parents are welcome to meet their child(ren) at their classroom following worship.

Children’s Choir

During adult Sunday School classes (9:30 AM – 10:15 AM), children are invited to participate in one of our age-appropriate children’s choirs:

  • Sound Seekers (3rd – 6th Grade): Under the direction of Ronnee Edwards, upper elementary children rehearse songs that will be performed during worship services throughout the year.
