As soon as safely possible we will resume our Sunday kids ministries!


Samantha Cathcart

Nursery Teacher

Professional childcare for newborn through Pre-K care is available Sundays from 9:00am - Noon with Samantha and our Safe Sanctuary certified helpers.

The Wiggle Room

We have a comfortable wiggle room in the back of the sanctuary offering rocking chairs, play space, and a clear view of worship. The glass wall provides a bit of sound isolation while our sound system allows you to hear what's happening in worship. You are welcome to utilize this space for an active toddler or lively newborn. Enjoy!

Temporarily Suspended - Sundays at 9:15am our K-5th grade are invited to our new Holy Moly adventure  The children will begin in the Sanctuary with our 9:15am Modern Worship opening music and then head to their own classroom for a look at Jesus and many of His most well-known teachings including the stories of the seed and sower, and the house built on a rock, plus stories of miracles and kindness from the widow’s mite to the Good Samaritan.

Find out more in our Parent's Letter.
