Are Children Welcome?

Children are welcome in both of the Sunday morning services at Wesley, or a nursery is available for children birth to age 5. There will always be some children in the service of worship, so you should never feel as though you have to take your children to the nursery.  At Wesley we love having the youngest among us. When we say all are welcome, we really mean it!

Relax and feel free to sit wherever you feel comfortable. We know children may be curious about what’s going on during the service, so sitting toward the front is not a problem.  If you feel you need to leave during the service with your child, we encourage you to feel comfortable moving about, but also encourage you to return to the service when ready. We offer a parent/child quiet room in the back corner of the sanctuary if a parent needs a place to feed a baby, or for when a parent and child simply need a quiet place for a few minutes. Children are important to Jesus and they are important to us.

Children (4 yrs to 5th grade) may attend Sunday school during the 9:30 a.m. worship service, which begins after the Children’s Sermon. Parents are welcome to drop children off at the class rooms (the main hallway between sanctuary and offices) before the service, or they can go with Sunday school leaders after the children’s sermon has ended.  There is no Sunday school for children on communion Sundays: the first Sunday of each month.  On communion Sundays we encourage families to worship together. We encourage parents to help children participate in the liturgy as Holy Communion is available to everyone. Nursery service for children, birth – 4 years, is still offered on the first Sunday of the month
