IMPORTANT NURSERY UPDATE: We wanted to make everyone aware that beginning Sunday, March 24th, a new child checkout process will be implemented to ensure the continued safety of all our little ones! Parents, you will receive a laminated animal shape when you sign in your child. This animal shape has to be returned to the nursery check in counter and given to the nursery greeter or a nursery helper before your child will be released. If someone else will be picking up your child, please ensure they have the animal shape. We realize this is one more thing to keep track of, but please bear with us! This change will be temporary as the church will be transitioning to a computerized check in system over the next several weeks, so stay tuned for more updates! If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to a nursery committee member!

Thank you! – The Nursery Committee
