Meet in Pastor's office after worship to sort the coins:)

As kids count coins on 5/21 Parents can chat with folks from Camp Crestfield about what they offer for Elementary kids.  Generations of our kids have attended Camp and we highly recommend them!

Sunday School for Children is held during the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service in the school year. Children attend the first portion of the service with their families and after the Children's Sermon they go to Sunday School.

1st Sunday Communion & Family Service.  When Communion is served (usually the 1st Sun of the month) there is no Sunday School.  Children are encouraged to stay in worship with their family and take communion as a part of the church family.

Nursery childcare is provided during the Worship service.  Staffed by wonderful professionals with full clearances who have worked with us for years.  Meet our Staff in the lively Nursery on the lower level.

All of our Volunteers are required to complete full PA criminal and child abuse clearances as well as FBI fingerprinting as required.  The process is simple, free for volunteers and completed online.  Please email Melanie if you are interested in Volunteering.
