WORSHIP NURSERY • VOLUNTEERS?10:30 AM • THE WELL NURSERY

Are you funtastic with kids and interested in volunteering to help moms and dads with little ones that might not last during worship? Can you lend a hand (every two months?) so parents with youngsters can attend and focus for an hour on the service instead of spilled crayons and goldfish? If so, please sign up! We’re looking for a pair of volunteers in the yellow brick church each week that can watch over toddlers playing with toys while their folks worship in the next room. If supervising playtime, Simon Says or coloring are among your gifts, please sign up and help us reopen the nursery. In the meantime, while we cook up the volunteer schedule, a few falling fish and an impromptu coloring project on a bulletin aren’t really noisy or distracting anyhow. Don’t stay away waiting for toddlers to turn 18! If anything, any typical antics will no doubt only trigger a smile from the few blessed to catch little ones and their families next to them in church.
