Church Nursery Volunteers Needed
There is a sign-up list on the piano near the front of the Sanctuary. In case we have a family or visitors with children from birth to 4 years of age, we want to provide a setting for the younger children during church. We realize that there may be Sundays that no younger children are present, but we ask for volunteers so that the Deacons may direct the parents/grandparents/family to the availability of the nursery and point them in that direction. If you volunteer, please be in the nursery area around 10:45 AM and greet any families who may come. If no one arrives by about 11:10, please come into the Sanctuary and join the church service. One or two people may sign up per date. If you have questions, please contact Gayenell Gull or Barbara Pratt. Thanks for your help on this!
For families with infants or young children, a nursery is available in the west education wing. The Deacons are available to provide additional information.
