Our children's ministries seek to reach out to all children in love, welcoming them and their families into the life of our church. By sharing God's love and God's Word, I pray that their hearts will be touched and their lives will be changed. My hope is that children and families alike will be encouraged and strengthened by the love and grace they experience here. With Jesus Christ as our example, our devoted volunteers and I aim to make the children disciples that truly make a difference in this world.

Covid-19 Update for Children’s Programming


Our nursery is now open during our three worship services on Sunday mornings.  The number of children is limited and reservations are required. Each service will allow (5) children ages 3-17 months and (8) children ages 18 months-4 years. 

You will need to make 2 separate reservations: one for worship and one for nursery!  Reservations open each Sunday at 4:00pm on the church website for the next Sunday’s services. CLICK HERE!

Things to Know … In an effort to reduce germs, there will be a 10 minute sanitation period between services. Temperatures will be checked upon arrival (staff and children). Masks will be worn by staff.  Please help us by not bringing anything in with your child, except a bottle or pacifier, as needed. We will provide diapers and wipes. 

If you have questions, please email Tina Wettermark, Director of Nursery Ministries, at .
