WNL(Wednesday Night Live) is a time for our church family to meet mid-week.  During this time, we share the WNL meal, which begins at 5:45pm.  Following dinner, the Youth gather in the Lounge for Church-Camp-Fire Songs with Dave and Kara.  See WNL link for more information.

Children's Choir: Once a month, the children share their cherub-like voices in worship. During WNL, elementary school-aged children rehearse from 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm.  The musical experience includes instruments, movement,  and singing.

Child Care Services include three different age groups on Sunday mornings during Sunday School and worship. Child care also is provided for congregational events that follow worship.

                 1) Toddler and Infant Care is available during Sunday School and worship. There is adult supervised care from 8:30 - 11:30 am, every Sunday, for children ages infant to 2-years-old, in Room 11 on the main floor (opposite the church office).

                 2) Children ages 3 through those currently in kindergarten begin the church service in the Sanctuary. Following the "Peace Candle," they move to Room 205 (upstairs), with two adults and a teenager for play and snack time. Following the service, parents/caregivers need to retrieve their child(ren) from Room 205.

                 3) Children Ages First Grade and Older are invited to join together in the Amistad Room, for Children's Fellowship time. Following the "Peace Candle," the children leave the Sanctuary and proceed to this room, between the Sanctuary and the Folsom Room. This time lasts during the sermon. There is adult supervision during this time, and the children return back to the Sanctuary following the sermon.

Our Whole Lives/Sexuality and Our Faith (OWL) offers families, children, and teens a comprehensive educational process of gaining information and forming attitudes, beliefs, and values about sexual identity, relationships, and intimacy.

The Sexuality and Our Faith component helps participants clarify their values and beliefs and emphasizes the worth and dignity of each participant.

Our Whole Lives helps parents fulfill their role as the primary educators of their children on issues of sexuality and helps create a partnership between the family and the church through parent orientation and parent education programs.

Individuals who participate in the program will know that their church cares about sexuality as a God-given part of life. In the program, young people will build relationships with faithful adults who care about sexuality education and sexual development. The program offers comprehensive sexuality education, which is about much more than just anatomy and health. It is about faith, values, respect, emotions, and justice.
