Nursery Care during Worship

During worship children (birth through preschool) meet in classrooms located on the first floor of Williams Hall. Each room is equipped with toys and activities planned for that age group.  Each parent is given a pager just in case we need to reach you during services.

Children in Worship

Here at Freemason Street we seek to integrate children into our worship services in ways that are beneficial and nurturing to our children and our entire faith community.

One way we integrate children into our Sunday morning worship is through Children’s sermons.   After the Children’s Sermon, the children are led to our chapel where they participate in a time of Children’s Worship.  Children’s Worship provides an opportunity for children to encounter the scriptures in a worshipful manner on their unique developmental level.
