What to Know About Your First Visit

On your first visit, please stop by the FIRST KIDS desk. We'll meet you and your family, get your child checked in and assigned a security tag, and one of our background-checked volunteers will lead you and your child to his or her classroom.  Each Sunday we offer preschool care and activities for birth through Kindergarten at 9:30 and 11 a.m. (preschoolers may stay both hours). Sunday School classes for 1st - 6th graders are available at 9:30 or 11 a.m. (elementary kids may attend one session). We encourage families to worship together as often as possible!
Wednesday night activities for birth through 6th graders are available beginning at 6 p.m.
