WHEN YOU ARRIVE:
You can expect to be greeted with a warm smile, open heart, and the buzz of friendly chatter. You are welcome to grab a cup of coffee and a treat as you enter worship. After service, please join us for an extended time of hospitality with coffee, pastries, and other goodies. We would love to get to know you. Also, we invite you to turn in a Connection Card and pick up a free gift on your way out.
Children are invited to begin worship with their families. After the Gloria Patri, they are welcomed up for "A Time for Young Followers of Jesus" after which they will be dismissed to Sunday School. After the Hymn/Song after the Sermon, the children will be brought back into worship service. As a first-time guest, you are asked to come with them to fill out all the appropriate forms and meet the teachers.
The children will begin together with singing, then break up into two groups. Pre-K and Kindergarten kids meet in the Nursery, and Grade 1-5 meet their Kids Club Room.
Middle School and High School youth remain in worship service with the exception of "youth volunteer assistants".
Our nursery is staffed by volunteers or you may watch your own children if you choose. There is also a cry room at the rear of the sanctuary, where you can still participate and hear the worship service.
