General Information Concerning Our Children's Ministries: 

Nursery Care—open every Sunday from 8:45 to 12 p.m. for children from birth to age 3 under the direction of a staff member working with an adult volunteer to ensure a safe, loving, and happy environment for God’s youngest ones.

Church School classes meet every Sunday from 9-10 a.m. from September to May. The classes offer Christian formation opportunities under the direction of adult volunteer teachers. Registration is open all year and children can join the classes at any time.

Bible Story Time—meets during the worship service (following the Children’s Moment) for children ages 4-6 in the Bible Story Time room, next to the Nursery. There, a staff member leads the children in a time of reading, playing games, making art projects, singing, and praying. This program helps children learn the stories of the Bible. 


Chapel Kids—an optional worship service designed for children in elementary school, ages 7 and up designed to help children deepen their faith by interacting with each other, praying, singing, and creating. Chapel Kids is offered during the sermon portion of worship (following the middle hymn) and is located in the chapel.

Safe Sanctuaries Policy—creates a safe space for children and youth. An important part of this policy is the “Two Adult Rule,” which requires all ministries with children and youth to have two adults present at all times.  These adults (both paid and volunteer) are carefully screened to ensure the safety of our children.

Parents should note that our policy requires children in grade 5 or younger be dropped off by a parent or another designated adult to events and programs, such as church school. We do not permit children to wander the church unsupervised.
