Infants and Toddlers
Both sides of our nursery are open from 10:45am to 12:30pm. Children ages birth - 18 months will enjoy playing and rocking with their caregiver in the infant nursery. We have an attached crib room for those infants who need to have their morning nap. Children ages 18 months to 3 years will have fun in the toddler nursery. They will have a light snack, play time, and hear Bible stories.
We have a 'Mother's Room' off of Room 101 to afford those nursing or needing some quiet time with their infant a little privacy.
Children’s Sunday School Classes
Children ages 3-Grade 5 join their families for the beginning of 11:00am worship, and exit the Sanctuary after the Children's Message. Their Sunday School teacher will meet them in the Narthex and walk them to their room. Please pick up children immediately after service. The last page of the bulletin lists our classroom numbers. In summer, we will all meet together in Room 210 for a lesson and snack, then head out to the playground if there is time.
Children ages 4-Grade 5 join Susan Dorion in Room 206 from 10-10:45 for music fun! There are games, instrument fun, and singing! Children's Music is held every Sunday through Palm Sunday. (Parents, feel free to grab a cup of coffee and gather in the Parlor for fellowship while the kids are in class!)
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
We are a meeting site for MOPS International. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month from 9:30-11:30 during the school year. Childcare is provided. Check out the MOPS International website to learn more. We would love to have you join us!
Bucket Brigade Collection
The third Sunday of every month children pass buckets through the congregation at the 11:00am worship service collecting money for church mission projects. One of the projects the bucket money supports is World Vision International. The children have adopted a 9-year-old Kenyan boy named Njoroge through the World Vision organization. The children keep in touch with Njorge with many letters passed back and forth. The children love to receive their special mail from Africa!
