Good news! Beginning in the new year during worship, Neeley or Erin will begin taking your children downstairs to the nursery after Wondering with God's Children (only if your children are planning to go to the nursery). This is to help you stay in worship and us get them to the nursery safely. We will sign in your children in the nursery so you can sign them out when you pick them up! As always, children are always welcome to wiggle and giggle in the pews!

Upcoming Ministry Opportunities
