"Sacred Ground" A Space for Young Families at the front of the Sanctuary
In an effort to show young families that we value their presence in worship, we have a space in the sanctuary especially geared toward families with children age 5 and under. Sacred Ground makes worship an easier fit for babies and tots.
Please invite your friends, children, and grandchildren, or anyone you know with young children to try out this space. We want worship to be accessible for all so we'd love for you to check out Sacred Ground. 
Nursery is available during Sunday worship services too. We are excited to welcome all. 

Art Cart—available for all worship services
Don’t forget children are welcome to use items from the Art Cart during any worship service. It’s simple—grab a fabric bag in “The Nook” and fill it with activities, use these items during worship, then return your items to the Art Cart after worship.
