There is a children s cart with Children s Worship Bulletins and Activity Bags which include crayons. The bulletins contain activities and coloring sheets that match the sermon and scripture. We love to have the children stay in worship (wiggles and giggles are welcomed and sacred sounds). Yet, if you would like your child to attend the nursery (birth-5), it is staffed with Safe Sanctuary trained individuals. You are welcome to bring them at any time during the service. *Safe Sanctuary Church* *Large Print and Children s Bulletins* *Nursery room for small children* *Sunday School for all ages* *Elevator Accessibility to all floors from the street level* *Wi-Fi* FUMC is a Reconciling Congregation where all persons of any age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnic origin, economic reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability or social status are welcome without reservation to share in God s love.

Every valley shall be lifted, And the crooked be made whole. Sound the trumpet, For the glory of the Lord shall be revealed. Come, O come, Emmanuel, And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lowly exile here, Until the Son of God appear. Rejoice, give thanks and sing! Emmanuel shall come to Thee, O Israel.
