Children’s Ministry: Wee Ones through 5th grade

Sunday School has moved indoors. We meet in the Chapel and start promptly at 9:15am. Masks are required and we will have air purifiers along with windows that we can open. Following our lessons, I will bring your kids into the Sanctuary and you will find us in the PrayGround.

Our Nursery is not available at this time as we are cleaning and refreshing the space. If you are in need of a changing table or need to quiet a screaming child, please use our lounge. Once your child is comforted, please feel free to return. We do have a speaker system in the lounge which feeds the service so you won't miss anything while away.
