Child/Nursery Care

 

Because we value the participation of young families in the full range of activities at our church, our delightful nursery is staffed by a professional childcare provider every Sunday. We also offer child care for many selected activities where young families could not attend without this support.

The nursery will be staffed from 9:30-12:30 on Sunday mornings to accommodate children of various ages during choir rehearsal before the service, and babies and toddlers during the worship service and religious education classes.

We ask that parents periodically sign up to take a turn assisting the the nursery so that there are always enough loving hands. When you leave to go to the service or another activity, we ask you to leave your cell phone number. Please keep your phone on vibrate so you can be paged to the nursery if your child needs you.

You are always welcome to keep your child with you in church. If you choose to do so and are seeking a place to go with a restless child or for private feeding, our Women's Society Lounge is wired for sound so that you can hear the service. The Women's Society Lounge is behind our kitchen. Ask an usher for directions if you need help to find it.
