Can we bring our kids?
We welcome children to the full worship service, even with the youngest ones making “sounds of life.” Children and families attend the first quarter of the service. They and their parents are invited (but not required) to join the pastor at the front for a simple message or story.
If you prefer, or your child becomes fussy, the Maggie Mae Lounge, at the rear and immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary, is available. Comfortable chairs, sofas, a restroom with changing table, and a closed circuit television will let you view worship with your child. When you’re ready, please feel comfortable to re-join the service.
Our Nursery (infants and preschool) is in Room 2 of the Education Building, and is staffed with two adult volunteers. Maggie Mae Lounge, directly adjacent to the Sanctuary, is also available for parents with children.
Following the children’s message, Faith Formation leaders escort children and youth (K through 5th grade) upstairs to Room 7 in the Education Building. Only the lower floor of the Education Building is handicap-accessible.
Joyful Beginnings Preschool
Joyful Beginnings Preschool is staffed with trained and caring teachers and provides a loving, safe and nurturing environment and implements a program based on current and effective educational practices. Each child is encouraged to grow and learn according to his or her individual ability.
