Children’s Ministries

Coronavirus Update:

While we are meeting virtually on Sunday mornings due to the coronavirus, we are sharing a short children’s message for 10-15 minutes every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. via Open Door Churches’ Facebook Live Feed. You do NOT need to have a Facebook account to take part. To join us, click the button below.

Children in Worship

Children are welcomed and encouraged to participate in worship! If you like, the ushers have activity bags with children’s bulletins and crayons for their enjoyment.

Childcare is available for infants through second grade in the Activity Room (Room 206 on the second floor of the historic sanctuary building) from 9:00 to 12:30 every Sunday.  Greeters are available to direct you.
