Please visit our Welcome Table to pick up a name-tag and information about our programs.
If you have babies or toddlers: You may keep your child with you during the service or take your child to the nursery (the greeters in the church foyer will direct you). If you choose to leave your child in the nursery, you will be asked to sign into nursery with your name and cell number. Please leave your phone on vibrate so nursery volunteers can reach you if your child needs you. You are invited to have coffee after the service before signing out your child from nursery. Please ensure your child has a fresh diaper before heading to nursery as our volunteers do not provide diaper changes.
If you have older children: They should go with you to the main sanctuary for the “time for all ages” part of the service. This may involve a song, story, or group chat. After this, you should accompany your children downstairs to the appropriate classrooms (signs on the doors will indicate the class age groupings). Please introduce yourself and your children to the class leaders or the Director of Religious Education, Sheila MacMaster. Then you may rejoin the service in Panabaker Hall. When you and your child are comfortable you can allow the class leader to escort them downstairs after Time for All Ages while you remain in the service. You are invited to have a quick coffee after the service.
- Children get to know each other better, have more fun, and learn about community when they attend at least 3-4 Sundays a month. We encourage you to come regularly!
- Volunteer involvement by parents is essential for our programs to be successful. Please speak to our Director of Religious Education about ways that you can help out.
