We are back together for in-person Sunday School for all ages!  

Before joining us, please consider:

  • Have you had a fever in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been exposed to someone who has tested positive to COVID-19?
  • Is there a medical reason why you should not be present?
  • Sanitize your hands often.
  • Practice social distancing between household units.
  • Face masks are encouraged during Sunday School.

Handicap Accessible

  • The southeast sanctuary entrance is both wheelchair and walker accessible.  
  • Handicap restrooms are located around the corner from the nursery.


Expect to be inspired by the music, encouraged by the message and reminded that God's grace is present here.  Our newly renovated sanctuary is large, but don't let that intimidate you!  It's filled with warm-hearted people who will welcome you in.

We want you to be comfortable.  If you prefer to wear jeans and a t-shirt, go for it.  If you like dressing up, please do.  We aren't concerned with how you dress.  Worship is about what's in your heart!
