6 months to 3 years old
Noah and his animal friends welcome our youngest friends into our nursery as warm, smiling faces greet their parents. Our nursery is available for children 6 months to 3 years old. We have a variety of age-appropriate books, games, puzzles, and toys to entertain your children during our church services. Two adults are in the nursery at all times, and there is an adjoining room for those little ones who may need to take a nap.

Family Worship Sundays
Family Worship Sundays create space for nurturing children in their understanding of worship and seasonal celebrations. On these days, Sunday School is suspended so children can remain in worship with their parents. Family Worship Sundays happen approximately once per month. On Family Worship Sundays, the youngest children still have the option to attend nursery or Young Children’s Worship.
Young Children’s Worship
3 years old to 2nd grade
On Family Worship Sundays, ages 3-2nd grade are invited to attend Young Children’s Worship following the Children’s Message. This sensory-oriented worship experience encourages children in their understanding of music, sacraments, prayer, and personal response.
