Children's Ministry Update 

Watch the video above of Teresa Spencer explaining all the new updates for Children's Ministry!

We are now welcoming children ages 3, 4, and 5 into Woodward Hall during the outdoor sermon and closing song. Parents can print badges (name tags/security stickers) as soon as you arrive in the Main Foyer that morning. You will receive one to place on your child’s back and one for you to keep with a security number on it. After the offertory song, we will ask parents to escort their kids to the Main Foyer where staff and volunteers will lead them to Woodward Hall for a lesson, more songs, and a few games. You can pick up your kids after the service is over in Woodward Hall.

One more change to our services: Given the fact that we have averaged less than one child in the indoor service, we will only be offering Children’s Ministry programming for the outdoor service. However, if this throws a wrench in your schedule PLEASE let us know and we will gladly gather some staff together to care for your children if you come to the indoor service. Just text us and we will be ready for you (Rich Sylvester, 757-784-2644; Christine Thomas, 757-256-8775). We will reevaluate this for the Advent season based off your feedback and suggestions. So again, let us know how we can best serve you on Sunday mornings!


We extend our prayers and sympathy to the Smith family on the passing of Rob's mother, Virginia Smith.

Save the Dates: Jan. 16-23, 2022
