Nursery is available for birth through 3 years old during both services and during discovery hour. Our nursery is located down the hallway behind the sanctuary. Likewise, if you need privacy for nursing or children who may be fussy, we have space in our Nursery that can be used as a cry room where you can still hear the audio of our services.
Discovery Hour during the school year starts at 9:45am for grades Pre-K through 6th grade in the downstairs classrooms.
