Children's Formation Opportunities

The children begin worship in the sanctuary with the congregation following God's time of Grace for Children they are invited to go to church school. Our one room school house church school program uses the Deep Blue curriculum.  

For babies and toddlers there is nursery care available through the worship service, but children are also welcome in the sanctuary. We believe families know what works best for them and their children.

Our children's program staff includes one paid staff. Hannah is a student at VCU and teaches our children's program and runs our nursery.
