We offer play days Monday through Friday in the nursery and in our Fellowship Hall preschool classrooms. Your child will enjoy crafts, outdoor play, stories, and fun in a Christian environment while you get some time for yourself! Children will be divided by age group in order to provide age-appropriate activities.

Hours are 8:45 am – 12:15 pm. Preference in enrollment will be given to families enrolling two days per week or more. Tuition is $320 for four days, $240 for three days, $160 per month for two days, $80 per month for one day.

Infant and Child Baptism

Baptism is a divine act, a pledge and gift God gives to us. Baptism of children includes the reaffirmation of the vows of the baptismal covenant by parents, sponsors, and the congregation; but chiefly it celebrates what God is doing and will do in the life of the infant or child. If you are ready to lead your child into a life of discipleship to Jesus Christ, with the support of this church, contact the Director of Children’s Ministry.
