Sundays at 10 am

Feeling safe and secure, welcomed and loved, is the foundation upon which faith is built. Our childcare team considers it a privilege to care for your child as they begin to trust, play, and discover their unique personality as a child of God.


Our team is ready to welcome your child at 9:45; you will find us close to the Sanctuary – our greeter team will be happy to help!

As you sign in, let the team know of any special needs your child might have.  Please leave a labeled diaper if needed. 

Quick and positive ‘good-byes’ will help with the transition.  We want your child to have a positive experience while you attend worship.  Please leave your phone on ‘silent’; we will text you if your child needs you.

Elementary-aged children learn best by watching and imitating, and our South campus worship service provides a beautiful opportunity for them to experience worship with you and their church family.  Your child in worship with us is a reminder of Jesus’ special relationship with them.


Our team is ready to welcome your child at 9:45 at the Cokesbury Kids welcome desk in right outside the Sanctuary – you never know what you might find there.

If it is your first visit, we have a special gift for your child.

Children will receive a special packet to use in worship; please return it to the welcome desk.
