Children's Ministry FAQs
1. Where is Children's Sunday School?
We have a nursery located on the main floor for babies through two year olds. Preschool Sunday School is located down the hall from the nursery. Our kids ages K-5 attend Sunday School on the second floor. Any greeter or person with a name tag will be happy to direct you.

As a congregation which supports the priesthood of all believers children are an important part of worship. Children and parents are encouraged to utilize our worship bags during the service.
