Toddlers ages 2 – 4 years old are introduced to the love of Jesus through age appropriate activities while being nurtured in a fun, caring environment. For those who find it hard to sit for a full hour, childcare is offered in our preschool room during both worship services.

Infants from newborns to 23 months are lovingly cared for each week by our childcare staff. Pagers are available to parents in case a little one gets upset while you are away and speakers can be found in the parlor and lobby area for parents who need to stay with their child but still wish to hear the worship service.
