The Nursery is provided for children ages 3 months to school age. Childcare is available from 8:00 am until 12:30 pm on Sundays. We also offer childcare for special events.

Nursery staff will lead an age appropriate Sunday school lesson and activity in the nursery from 10–11 am. All children are provided light refreshments if they choose. Special needs children are welcome and parents are encourage to meet with staff to discuss accommodations.

The Nursery is located just off of the courtyard and a few steps from the large oak tree.

You may contact Tara McConathy for more information.
