Nursery Volunteers needed!  To provide a safe environment for the littlest ones in our church family, we are required to have two unrelated adults in the nursery each Sunday. If you can volunteer to work with our paid childcare worker either during the Sunday School hour or during worship (or both!) on an occasional basis, please contact Meg Moore at 202-549-7548 or . If we get a large enough pool of volunteers the commitment should only be a few times a year. Men and women are welcome, as are youth 16 or older. We would also like someone to act as nursery volunteer coordinator, so please consider if this is the job for you!
