For Visiting Families:
What to Expect on Sunday Morning


We look forward to meeting new families! Services begin in the Meeting House every Sunday morning at 10:00, from the Sunday after Labor Day until mid-June. If your family is attending with children, plan to arrive a little early to meet our Membership Coordinator, Sara Morrison Neil, on the steps of the Meeting House, and our Director of Religious Exploration, Rebecca Crawford. All children, regardless of age, are welcome to stay with their families throughout the entire worship service. You are also welcome to explore these options:

Infants to 24 months

A staffed nursery is available for your youngest child(ren) in the Parish House.

Preschool Ages 3-4

A classroom for preschool aged children meets in the Parish House most Sundays just before service begins until just after the service is over. On three-day weekends, children aged 3-4 are welcome to the nursery for childcare.

School age children join the congregation for the first 15 minutes of service with their families. After opening rituals and hymns, the children leave the sanctuary with their teachers to their age appropriate classroom. Visiting children are welcome to join them and will be directed by the DRE to the appropriate classroom. Parents/Guardians are expected to collect their children at the end of the service in their classroom. Kindergarten-Eighth Graders.
