Nursery & Extended Session
The Nursery is designed to provide a safe and nurturing environment for young children. In this way, we hope that you can participate in learning and worship with the assurance that your child will receive loving care.
A paid nursery attendant who is trained in first aid procedures oversees our nursery and is assisted by volunteers as needed. The nursery is staffed from 9:30 A.M. until all children have been picked up after worship and fellowship hour. When church school classes are not in session, the nursery is not staffed until 10:30 AM.
Parents or guardians of nursery children who are new to our church are asked, before leaving their child(ren) in the nursery, to fill out the contact-information form located in the pews.
The Word for Children and Extended Session
Early in the worship service we have a time for The Word for Children in which we focus on our children.
Extended Session provides an opportunity for children ages 3-7 to leave worship early in the service following the Word for Children. Children are also welcome to remain with their parents for worship.
Parents or guardians of children who are new to our church are asked, before having their child(ren) go to Extended Session, to fill out the contact-information form located in the pews and give it to the person who accompanies the children from the sanctuary to Extended Session.
Because we know that children learn by doing, we encourage children ages 8 and up to worship with their families, thus learning the rhythms and ways of worship in community.
