St. Columba's cherishes it's youngest members and works hard to make sure parents feel supported, and the babies and toddlers in our community are cared for in a safe, nurturing environment.
St. Columba's employs 3 Childcare Providers on Sunday mornings from 8:45-11:45am, so parents with young children can attend Adult Forum at 9, the Service at 10, and enjoy coffee hour at 11 with an extra set of hands ready to help them with their little ones. Our Family Room, where childcare and the Younger Godly Play class meet is just off the Sanctuary has large sliding glass doors that open directly into the Worship Space. This room boasts toys for ages 0-7, comfortable couches, a pack n play and bouncer for naps, a high chair, and two friendly faces, happy to change a diaper, feed a baby, and hear about the family's week!
Young Children are also welcome in the Sanctuary during the Service, there is a Children's Carpet just outside the Family Room, close to the Altar, where kids ages 6 months to 12 years gather to enjoy the service together. There you'll find a basket of age appropriate toys and books for children 0-2, feel free to take a seat on the carpet with your baby and read books during the service, or take the basket back to your seat to enjoy. Everything is to make you and your baby comfortable!
