Children's Ministry is so excited to bring back Zoom Time with Paula & Holly on Sunday mornings at 10 am. This is an online gathering meant to take the place of Children's Sunday School where we check in with one another, play games, and sing songs. We will still hold Enrichment and Bible Beat in person during the 11 am service and hope to see you all there.

For more information, please contact Paula Dugan at


Sundays, 11 am, Sanctuary

We believe children are a sacred gift, and they are welcome in our worship. Children will be invited forward during worship for a Children’s Time. Following this, children ages 4 through 5th grade are invited to go with our children’s educators for further enrichment or return to their caretaker for the remainder of the service. If there is a way our children’s ministry can be more welcoming to you and your child, please contact Paula Dugan at
