Children in Worship
Your children are welcome here! Find a seat that works well for your family. To help children learn and grow in their faith, we offer several activities and amenities: Activity Bags are located near the Sanctuary entrance. Creation Station is located on the west side of the Sanctuary and is a part of the Children’s Moment each week. Children are encouraged to color a picture and give it as their offering. Nursery is located by the bathrooms at the top of the Newton Street stairs. We offer a staffed nursery at both Sunday services for children five years old and younger. A Changing Table & Child-sized Restroom is located in the Nursery and is available at all times.
School Kits are ready to be filled! It’s time to fill the School Kits again! There are brightly colored, cloth drawstring bags on a table in the Narthex just waiting to be picked up and stuffed with school supplies. There is a list of needed supplies in each bag. Please Note: we can only send 70-count notebooks in the kits, not other sizes. Please only purchase what is asked for on the supply list. Completed bags can be put back on the table where they will be collected and readied for shipping to Lutheran World Relief.
One Word: Possibilities
