The Little Things

Cry Room

In the back of the Sanctuary is our “Cry Room”. It may be accessed from the hallway, and ushers will gladly direct you to it. It is a great place to take a fussy little one who can’t quite make it through the service, while still being able to listen to the worship and see through the one way glass.

Worship Bags

These are canvas bags with Children’s Bulletins, crayons, and books that are provided each week, and usually go along with the sermon. These keep little ones busy in church so parents are free to enjoy the service!

Monthly Events

Monthly events; such as movie night, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, board game night, bible scavenger hunt and art night; are held to promote learning and friendship.

Confirmation Class
