Children

"The things that are essential to salvation are so exceedingly simple that no child need sit down in despair of understanding the things which make for his peace. Christ crucified is not a riddle for sages, but a plain truth for plain people. True it is meat for men, but it is also milk for babes."

~~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon ~~

Nursery

Our nursery is filled with loving caregivers who have been thoroughly vetted and trained to care for our babies, toddlers and preschoolers. The nursery is available for children under 4 during all of our Sunday and Wednesday services and activities. Your children are always welcome to join you in any of our services and activities. However, if you would like to leave them in the care of our wonderful workers where they will learn age appropriate lessons of God’s love and play with friends their age, then our nursery is the place to be. We also do our best to provide an open nursery during many of our G.R.O.U.P.S. ministries that meet throughout the week. When an adult group meets at a time when there are no other activities for older children we extend the nursery to include all children 5th grade and under.
