Nursery Hours: Our professionally-staffed nursery is open Sunday mornings this summer between 10:00 a.m. and noon, for infants of six-weeks to children four years old as parents desire and are in worship and fellowship. The nursery is located directly off the Parish Hall foyer. Your infants and young children are always welcome in church.


Children's Church is offered during the 10:30 service. Children depart to the chapel for their own sermon and program, with opportunity to stretch and wiggle, and return to church in time for communion with their parents.
