Nursery for Infants and Toddlers
The nursery room is open to use (unattended) on Sundays, 7:45 am-12:45 pm. It is located near the Fellowship Hall and restrooms.
Worshipping with Small Children
Children are welcome in all of our worship services. God loves the little children, and so do we!
Rainbow Bags are available to use during worship. Feel free to have your child grab a bag on the way into service from the Narthex or Family Life Center lobby. Please return the bag on your way out.
Our focus is to connect the theme and message of the day in a simpler way that children can understand and relate to on their level. We invite the children to come forward to hear the message.

Mama Bear Apologetics... Also for Papa Bears
Join us for a book study on Mama Bear Apologetics! We will offer 2 identical sessions each week on Tuesdays, 2:00-3:00 pm or Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00 pm in Room 240, Family Life Center, beginning September 5 and 6.
Learn how to raise kids who think critically, love Biblically, and stand firm against the cultural tide. This book study will equip you to teach your kids how to affirm Biblical beliefs about what is true and what is false. Through transparent life stories and clear, practical applications — including prayer strategies — these Mama Bears offer you tools to train yourself, so you can turn around and train your kids.
You will need to purchase the Mama Bear Apologetics book. You will want to attend if you have your own children or grandchildren, want to have children one day, or interact with children on a regular basis — anyone that has an intentional relationship with kids is encouraged to join us.
