Infants and Younger Children In Worship:
Children of all ages bring special gifts and are always welcome in
worship. However, if your infant or young child needs a place to cry, talk, or play with other children, free nursery care is
available. The Nursery is located in the Narthex and is supervised by experienced, welcoming, caring staff and volunteers.
For children who choose to remain in worship, there are worship activity bags and children’s worship bulletins
available at the back of the sanctuary.
Resource For Parents:
See the wonderful resource for parents titled
Worship Readiness: Preparing Children for Congregational Worship.
Why We Worship The Way We Do A
Commentary on the Service of the Lord’s Day
Check out this
online resource that explains each part of a Sunday worship service in the Presbyterian
Church. Your pastors always welcome your questions about worship,
faith and life.
Each Sunday, during our 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services, children ages
four through seven may leave after the Time with Children to attend Sunday Plus, a program of Bible stories
and activities. Older children are invited to remain in worship with their families.
