Child care for infants and toddlers is provided by volunteers on Sunday mornings from 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Our well-equipped nursery, which we refer to as “Cradle Roll”, is located off the Recreation Room on the lower level of the church. We use a sign in and sign out system for the toddlers, along with a parents seating plan so we will know how to find you if the need arises during the service. Our worship services are pipped into the Cradle Roll room so the volunteers and children may listen to the music and service. Beginning at age 3, children are welcome to transition from the nursery to the Pre-K class.
A changing table is available in the nursery along with the children’s restrooms.
During the summer months, the Nursery is available for parents to relax with their own children.

“I get an overall feeling of being uplifted.”
Service of Prayer and Healing
Inspired by the Celtic Tradition, the roughly half-hour service will include music, readings, prayers and an opportunity to receive a “Laying on of Hands” blessing. Service will be held in the Chapel following the 10:00am worship service and fellowship, on the 2nd Sunday each month. Due to scheduling conflicts, there will not be a September Service of Prayer and Healing, however Rev. Kevin Pleas is available any time you are in need of prayer.
Young Athletes Program
We will begin volunteering with the Special Olympics Young Athletes Program on Wednesdays 5:30-6:30pm begining October 16th. See Bill Jones to get more details!
