We offer Childcare and Sunday School for children through the 8th grade every Sunday. Our service begins at 10am in the Sanctuary. Other than Nursery aged children (3 years and younger), all children begin in the service with their parents and are then dismissed to Sunday School. Please click here for more Sunday School details!
