Volunteer Leaders in Worship
We welcome you to join us in dreaming big with our children and youth, as we create opportunities for our young congregants to lead worship via reading Scripture, supporting baptism, greeting congregants, acolyting, singing with the Choir School, assisting with communion, etc. Let us honor our faith journey by living into the baptismal promises we make to our children and youth, encouraging them to grow in faith with love.

Worship and Wiggles

Children are always welcome in the Sanctuary. Children’s Bibles are in the pews. Children’s bulletins and crayons are available at all Sanctuary entrances. For those who desire a wiggle break, Room 7 is equipped with toys, puzzles, books, and livestream worship.

 

Nursing and Diapering

Caring for children’s needs is one way we share God’s love. Changing tables are available in the nursery, most bathrooms, and Room 6. Parents are welcome to nurse and feed their babies wherever they are most comfortable. For those who desire privacy, Room 6 is available.
