  • MEGHAN MARKLEY

    NURSERY COORDINATOR

    A word from Meghan about the nursery...


    "We would love to watch over your sweet babies and toddlers (ages 0-3) during the morning worship service! The kids will experience an engaging time of playing, snacks, music, and Bible stories. It is never too early for your babies to be shown the love of Jesus! Nursery check-in begins at 10:30 a.m. and check-out occurs at the end of the worship service. 


    We are always in need of volunteers! If you have a desire to serve Christ with us, please do not hesitate to contact me."

    A note from Jill about the preschool ministry...


    "We welcome all preschoolers (ages 3-5) who are not currently enrolled in Kindergarten. We introduce your child to biblical truths that they can understand through the use of Bible stories, coloring, crafts, and various activities. Children may sign-in before the worship service begins and walk to the "Children's Wing" when dismissed from the service.


    Please do not hesitate to contact me about the ministry and/or volunteer opportunities."
