WELCOME!
We extend a warm welcome to all who have come to worship and fellowship with us this morning. If you are a first time visitor with us, please take time to fill out a Welcome Card located in the pew rack and place it in the offering plate. Parents of small children (under age 3) may take them to our Nursery, where a caring staff will supervise them. We also have a Pre-School Program (ages 3-5) that runs during our Worship Service in the Church Time PreSchool Room. One of our ushers would be happy to help you locate either one of these facilities. Elementary School children are invited to take part in our KidZone program which starts after the first part of our Worship Service downstairs in the Vestry.
