Messy Church is a way of being church for families based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.  Our participants will meet Jesus in every component of Messy Church and experience the unconditional love and grace of God.  Messy Church returns Sunday, August 18 from 5-7 pm.  It includes multi-generational activities, worship, and a catered dinner.  Invite a friend to join you for Messy Church!



Our children's wing is the first building to the east of the sanctuary.  Click here for a map of class locations.
· Infants, toddlers, and preschool children –  During our 9:30 and 11:00 services, our child care staff and a screened volunteer cares for children from birth through age 5 in Room 100. An adult must sign in the child with the same adult picking them up.  Parents are asked to leave essential supplies for infants.  Our paid child care staff is trained in CPR and first-aid procedures.  
· Children’s Church – During the 9:30 service, children in kindergarten through fifth grade begin in worship sitting with their families.   Approximately 15-20 minutes into the service, they are invited to leave for Children’s Church out the east door.  The adult leaders walk with the children.  Parents should pick up their children immediately after the service.  Kindergarten through Fifth grades are in room 103. 
· Sunday school – During the 11:00 service, children in kindergarten through fifth grade may choose to attend worship with their family or to participate in Sunday school.   We have two Sunday school classes for children: Preschool in 100, Kindergarten through Fifth Grade in room 103.
