Nursery

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.

Relax and Reflect in the Memory Garden
