Beginning this Sunday, September 13, we're going to try something new with how we dismiss children during the service. As always, children are welcome to stay in the sanctuary for the duration of the service. All children leaving for care during the service (nursery, preschool, children's church) will be dismissed after the 4th song (immediately before prayers of confession). Our volunteers will meet children at the sanctuary entrance (across from the library) and will take them back to their rooms from there.
Nursery and preschool age children will be returned to the sanctuary by our volunteers at 12:15 p.m., when they will rejoin their parent(s). Parents of children's church kids should plan to pick up their children at the children's church room, immediately after the service.
Parents, you can help us by going over this new process with your children before Sunday. Also, please print, fill out, and bring this form with you on Sunday--one for each of your children.
We would like older kids (i.e. those who are older than children's church) to stay with us in the sanctuary during the service. Please, no hallway roaming!
