July Events

June 25th through July 23rd:
CYRE classes for children kindergarten through high school will be on summer break. However, the nursery for children one year old through pre-school will be offered. For children too old for the nursery and too young to appreciate all aspects of the church services, we offer a “busy box” with books to read, activity books, and crayons. The box is located under a folding table near the southeast entrance of the sanctuary. Please return unused materials to the box after the service. In addition, we have a “crying room” at the back of the sanctuary with a rocking chair and a few toys. We welcome babies into the service, of course, however, we wanted to offer this option to parents. Our classes will resume on July 30th.
