YES 

Children are an important part of our congregational life. Pastor Hart and the worship team would like to help children become involved in our worship services through the YES! program. There are many opportunities for children to assist in worship. Take time to talk about these opportunities, taking note of the ages for each and sign up for those your child/children may be interested in.  Support from adult volunteers will be provided on the Sundays children are scheduled. Of course, parents are welcome to volunteer as well to be scheduled together with their children in various roles.
