Each Sunday morning our elementary age children are invited to attend "Kids' Worship" upstairs following the pastors children's sermon in the sanctuary. During Kids' Worship our children do crafts, learn Bible lessons, watch videos and sing songs.
There is also Nursery Care (birth - 3yr olds) available through worship and Sunday school 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM Nursery care is often provided for other events as well.

FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
Well, here we are at the beginning of Advent. We are preparing for Thanksgiving dinner. We are preparing to hang the decorations. We are preparing to do our Christmas shopping. Some of you may even be preparing to go shopping on Black Friday. The choir is preparing for the Service of Lessons and Carols. So many preparations going on.
But what about the preparations of our hearts. Are we doing anything to prepare for the real meaning of Advent. Advent is a season observed in many Western Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is a version of the Latin word meaning "coming". There are three meanings of 'coming' that Christians describe in Advent. The first, and most thought of, happened about 2000 years ago when Jesus came into the world as a baby to live as a man and die for us. The second can happen now as Jesus wants to come into our lives now. And the third will happen in the future when Jesus comes back to the world as King and Judge, not a baby.
So, as we continue our preparations, let us not forget to prepare ourselves for Christ coming now, and in the future. May God continue to bless us and watch over us.
For the only cause that matters,
