Our children's ministries seek to reach out to all children in love, welcoming them and their families into the life of our church. By sharing God's love and God's Word, I pray that their hearts will be touched and their lives will be changed. My hope is that children and families alike will be encouraged and strengthened by the love and grace they experience here. With Jesus Christ as our example, our devoted volunteers and I aim to make the children disciples that truly make a difference in this world.  

Blessings,
Michelle Graham
Director of Children's Ministries

NURSERY

Our nursery is open on Sunday mornings during the three worship services and during Sunday School. The number of children is no longer limited and reservations are no longer required. Nursery is available for infants 3 months of age and toddlers through age PK4 years. 

Things to know - In an effort to reduce the spread of germs, nursery staff will sanitize and switch out toys between sessions. Masks will be worn by staff. Please help us by clearly labeling any cup, bottle or pacifier that comes into nursery with your child.
