Adult Choir (high school - adult) meets Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Chapel and studies a wide range of repertoire.

Children's Choir (children 3 - 5th grade) meets Sundays at 9:45 a.m. and uses a Christian curriculum to introduce the basics of choral performance, reading and playing music, including percussive instruments and handbells.

*As we are shifting our programming between in-person and virtual, if you'd like to participate in our music programs, please reach out in advance.

 

Young Children & Nursery Care

Children, no matter how small, are always welcome in worship.  Children are not just the congregation's future, they are also a special part of our current life together.  The noises they make are a joy and a sign of life, not a bother.

Nursery care is available for children ages 3 and under during all regular worship services. Our nursery care is provided by adult staff with child care clearances.

*As we are shifting our programming between in-person and virtual, if you're planning utilize nursery care, kindly reach out in advance.
