The Wiggling Worshipers program will be on a summer break until September 15th. We hope that this break will allow all of our wonderful volunteers a chance to relax and worship with the entire church family throughout the summer. You can find coloring pages on the table in the back of the sanctuary as well as children’s worship bags in the Narthex. We ask that if your child is coloring at the back table that a parent join them in one of the chairs provided. Should you and your child need to take a break from the main sanctuary, the Rose room, located adjacent to the narthex, has a comfy couch and speakers so that you can still enjoy worship. Please contact Alicia Rhodes alicia@actionplusideas.com or the church office if you have any questions.
