Nursery
We do have a nursery available during worship for young children. It is located downstairs in the back left corner of the social hall.

Let the little children come to worship!
We welcome children in our worship service as it adds excitement and energy. There is no separate service for children, but there is a children’s message during worship service.  Following the children’s message, young children are invited, but not required, to move to the nursery.

On Sunday mornings ONLY, street parking is available on both sides of Second Street, and limited parking is available in the lot behind the Flower Depot across the street.  All other times of the week, street parking is available only on the west (river) side of Second Street.
