Dear Parents– We love having children at Christ Church! There is no Sunday school this Sunday, but we will provide a small table outdoors with some lectionary-based activities for your children if those interest them. Marisela may be available to sit outside with you and your children and help you care for them, but she is not the teacher on those mornings. At least one parent needs to accompany their child(ren). You know your children’s needs and learning styles better than anyone else, so we count on your expertise to help us serve your children well.

Out of respect for other church members enjoying coffee hour and/or the 1 p.m. worship service, please keep your children in your sight once the 11 a.m. service has concluded.

Thank you!
