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.
