Nursery care is provided for children 0-2 in Room #106 during our 8:30am and 11am services. Children aged 3-Kindergarten are encouraged to accompany their families for worship through the Children’s Moment and then may move to room 106 for Wee Ones’ Worship (W.O.W.) during the designated break in each service. Children in first grade and older participate in worship with their families for the entire worship hour. There are worship bags in a bin in the narthex and main hallway to aid children in worshipful activities while remaining with their families. There is also a shelf of books outside the snactuary in the main hallway where children can select a book to use in their own worship.
