We want you and your family to be comfortable while you are with us.
Visiting parents may join us for the Jams, or attend the adult service, whatever is best for you and your child(ren).
Our dress is casual, and we go outside and play nearly every Sunday, so don’t feel shy about wearing playclothes!
Our playground is supervised from 10 – 11 a.m. (between services) so that parents can socialize during coffee hour, if you wish.
Our aim is to have fun and make friends, as well as share the questions and the issues that children are wondering about.
