We know what an important ministry this is to both the smallest of our church family and their parents.  We have graduated many of our Toddler Room volunteers to college, new jobs and new locations.   So as they say in football, we are in a rebuilding year and are seeking refreshed volunteers to help this ministry soar. We need new volunteers to be the hands and feet of Christ with the smallest of His children.

We want to provide childcare for children 4 years old and younger during our variety of worship services and classes.  I do offer training specifically for the Toddler Room so that our children and families can have a consistent experience through a variety of care givers.  You will not be alone, we have 2 people in the toddler room for each shift as stated by our Child Protection guidelines.


Please click the button below to register to serve as the Hands and Feet of Christ with our youngest generation.
