Children

During the program year, September - June, we offer church school during the Sunday service for our children. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been offering church school both virtually and in-person. After the Children's Time, our kids are invited to their Sunday activities.

 

We understand that visiting can be a little scary sometimes, so kids are always welcome to remain in the service with their parents.  For visitors with infants, we also provide nursery care.
