Sunday Worship

@ 10AM • 60 MINUTES

For People with Children

When you arrive at UCC, expect to see people of all ages in the foyer, greeting visitors and catching up with friends. Once the 10am service starts, check the bulletin handed to you for the details of that Sunday’s service, upcoming events, church activities and news.

During the service, hymnals and Bibles are available in every pew to use. Please take time to sign the friendship pad that is passed, so we can get to know you better.  If you have joys or concerns you would like shared during the main prayer, write them down and hand to the usher when directed.

After the service, please join us back in the foyer for coffee, a cold soft drink, a treat, good conversation and some laughs!  


Nursery

On Sunday mornings, our nursery is available for infants through 4 year olds.  Our nursery staff provides childcare services 15 minutes prior to service, during service, and immediately after the service for 15 minutes.

In addition, parents are welcome to bring their children to the nursery any time during the service.

We offer a safe environment for children through sign-in sheets and background checks on all our staff.

 

Children are an important part of our congregation.  A special time for children takes place in the front of the church, shortly after the service has started.  After children’s time, kids ages 4 through high school can choose to go to Sunday school, or sit with their parents for the rest of the service.  Infants through age 3 can go to our nursery, which has staffed childcare for the entire service.
