Staffed nursery care for infants and children up through 2 ​years old is available during the Worship Service. The nursery ​is open during Sunday School for mothers and babies, but it is ​not staffed during Sunday School.

Children’s Church takes place during the last half of the ​Worship Service and is available for children 3 years old ​through 4th-graders.

Everyone 3 years old and up is together during the first
