FOR THIS MORNING’S WORSHIP, we have created a Prayground through one of our sliding panel doors.  This space invites toddlers and young children to have a bit more room to move around, provides some quiet and reflective play options, and allows children and parents to still be participants in our shared worship.  If needed, please feel welcome to come and use this space!

Brittany, our childcare provider, is worshiping with her congregation for Easter.  If needed, there is a more fully equipped nursery space in our CE wing and parents are welcome to use that space.  If you are unfamiliar with our facilities, please ask one of our ushers to assist you.

WE’VE UPDATED OUR WORSHIP BAGS!  Worship Bags for children are available on the colorful children’s chairs in the narthex.  A selection of children’s books on Bible themes, some extra coloring or puzzle pages, and colored pencils are available in the bins on the seats of the chairs.  Children are invited to pick up a bag and select a book or supplemental items for their worship this morning. Please return the bags and supplies to the narthex at the end of the service. Thank you.
