The Nursery also has a place for parents to change diapers and rock their little ones if it is needed. 

  • church school - Begins September 10, 2023

    Church school is a space for kids in grades K-5 to connect with one another, learn about the Bible, and grow in their spirituality. Children will gather in the sanctuary for worship with their families at 10:00 a.m. Following the Heart to Heart part of the service, they will be brought into the educational wing below the sanctuary for planned activities. They will return to the sanctuary to join in the final hymn at the end of worship.


  • Confirmation

    Our current confirmation program is offered for high school students in grades 9 through 12. Our 5-module curriculum allows flexibility for students to go at their own pace to complete confirmation requirements in 1-2 years. All participants are required to take the first module, called Bible Basics, before they can register for the other modules. The first module of Bible Basics will be offered starting on September 17 at 12:30 p.m.  Interested parties should email our Minister for Faith Formation, Christy Wynveen.

Participants come from diverse theological backgrounds and welcome others to share their perspectives on life, faith, and spirituality.   Interested parties should email our Minister for Faith Formation, Christy Wynveen.
