Have some questions or need to speak with someone? Contact Elizabeth Solis, our Director of Children's Ministry: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have nursery care available during all three Sunday services (8:00, 9:30, & 11:00am) for infants through age 2. To find the nursery, exit the Sanctuary, turn right & enter the first building on your right. Once inside, the nursery is the second door on your right. Or... just ask one of our helpful Greeters in the Sanctuary lobby, and they'll help you get there!
During our 9:30 & 11:00am services we have a children's message during the worship service for ages 3 through 5th grade, then children can go to Children's Sunday School or return to sit with their families. We have a state-of-the-art check-in system for Children's Ministries for added security. Our amazing teachers have many years of experience and a dynamic style to keep children engaged! Just stop at the table in the Sanctuary lobby at the beginning of the 9:30 & 11:00am services!
There is also a "Wiggle Room" off of the lobby, with a window into the Sanctuary, so you won’t miss a thing during the service!
