Children in Worship Children are welcome in our worship services, it is exciting to see the signs of growth in our congregation. We offer families several options during worship services:
Birth-Age 3: Nursery Care is located in the Education Wing, Room J by trained staff. Pagers are given in case parents need to be reached.
Ages 3-5: Our Prayground is a quiet activity center in the sanctuary where parents are invited to sit and supervise their children.
Ages 6+: Activity Bags are located in the back of the sanctuary for each age. Children are encouraged to grab one and take it to their seats.
All Ages: The Oasis Room, a peaceful room to see and hear worship from a separate space off the foyer. Ideal for a sensory break, cry room, or nursing.
