Families are encouraged to begin in services together to enjoy praise, prayer, announcements, the Children's Moment, offering, and to participate in or observe the taking of sacraments.


Care is available for children in infancy through 3 years old in rooms 17-18 across from the main office during service on Sundays. Infants and toddlers receive loving, nurturing care from paid staff. The same dear hearts care for our infants every Sunday to afford parents time to enjoy the adult services.

Parents are welcome to stay with their child if necessary. A private room for nursing mothers is available and the worship service can be heard in the nursery. Contact Laurie Postema to learn more.  


All children come forward to enjoy a children's moment during the adult service. At the conclusion of this moment, children in grade 1 and younger leave to complete an age-appropriate lesson in rooms 18 & 19 in the main office hallway. Children in grade 2 and older will remain in worship services for the entire time. Be sure to grab a Sunday Sermon Notebook for these children who will stay in for the entire service. Please help your child to bring this notebook to church every Sunday. Their sermon notes, drawings and doodles will help you to enjoy great conversations about faith at home.


All children ages 4 through 5th grade are encouraged to attend their GROW GROUP School between services, 10:05 - 10:45 a.m., from September through May for a bible lesson and other fun activities. This is the children's primary bible foundation teaching on Sundays.
