NURSERY CARE AND CHURCH SCHOOL
Babies and children of all ages are invited, welcomed and encouraged in our worship services. We have a nursery available for infants through three years of age for your convenience. We have a basket in the narthex filled with children’s worship activities to use during the worship service. The nursery room is staffed with two volunteers who would be happy to care for your child while you attend worship. You may drop your children off in the nursery room at 9:45 a.m. Following the children’s sermon all children ages 4 through 7th grade are invited to go to church school . All children are to be picked up immediately after worship.
DO YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY? The best way to reach someone for assistance is to leave a message at the church office at 802-867-2260 Our office is open Monday – Friday from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM. We check the machine often in the off hours. Diane or Jane will contact Rev. Gray if he is available or Rev. “Skip” Dickinson on Jim’s days off.
