The St. Paul’s NurseryNew Location
St. Paul’s offers nursery care for our littlest ones during the 10:00 service on Sundays in our new Nursery location—now downstairs in the Education Wing. Parents of children ages 6 months to 3 years can drop them off starting at 9:30am. Our Nursery is very kid-friendly, with toys, books, and even a crib for those needing a nap. Feel free to make use of it as needed, whether for the whole service or until Communion. Children of all ages are always welcome in church. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me…”
