Is Childcare Available During Worship? Childcare for Children up to age 3 is available each Sunday in the cribbery from 8:00 a m. – 11:00 a.m. for parents who are attending worship and taking classes. The Cribbery is located in the lower level of the Christian Education Building. We have three qualified childcare workers who are responsible for the oversight of infants through 2 years old. We also offer a paging system for our parents. Upon leaving your child in the cribbery you receive a pager. In the event your child needs you for any reason our childcare worker will page you to the cribbery. This allows our parents to worship with confidence that their children are happy and well cared for.
Are Children Welcome in Worship? Children are integral to our worship, and our life as a congregation! All Sunday School age children begin worship in the Sanctuary(Traditional) and then on most Sundays are dismissed to Sunday School after the “Time With The Younger Church” during the service. In the wired4worship.com Contemporary Worship Service children attend wired4worship Kidz and are dismissed during announcements.
