what's available for my kids?

Our nursery is staffed by caring professionals who love children and are strongly committed to their safety and security. Nursery care for infants through 3 years old is available through 12:15 p.m. on Sundays and for many other church events. Our nursery is located on the second floor of the building, one level above the Fellowship Hall where The Way is located.

Children ages 3 years old- Grade 5 are invited to go to Children's Church during The Way.

Wee Believers is for children ages 3 years old through Kindergarten. The children are dismissed and go up the stairs in the Gathering Space. At the conclusion of the service they may be picked up in room U-4.

Belief Builders is for children in grades 1-5. The children are dismissed at the conclusion of children’s time and may be picked up downstairs in room L-8 following the service.
