Children's Chapel
Children's Chapel is a place for children to go worship in the traditions of our faith but in a way that's geared towards Pre K to 3rd grade. It will be held at the 10:30 service and the children will return  during the Peace.  Volunteer adults and teens lead the worship and music, and children do the rest - from reading the Psalm and Prayers of the People, to lighting candles and collecting the offertory, to running the power points. Please remember to take your children to the restroom prior to the service. See you there and be ready to have fun in Children's Chapel!
