Kids & Youth
What we believe about kids and youth
We believe that all children are a gift from God, and consequently all adults are too. We believe that kids are an active and integral part of the church family and that God has a unique story and life for each of them to live out. It's our desire that kids don't ever feel like they're on the sidelines waiting to "get big" before they can make a difference and follow God, but we want them to feel that they can pray, they can give, they can serve, they can learn and they can share with others the love of God right alongside the rest of the adults.

Nursery-Age Children in the Auditorium
Children are welcomed and encouraged to be part of worship service. For every family there are times when a child needs special attention. Please be considerate of those around you and remove your child from the sanctuary if their needs become a distraction. Parents are more than welcome to be in the nursery with their children.
There is a Nursing Mom's Room on the far wall of the Auditorium that moms should feel free to use.
