A place for families

During worship, the Virginia Gilmer Room offers a live feed from the Sanctuary so that nursing mothers or parents with restless children can worship in a more comfortable environment. The space offers comfortable seating, worship bags for children and a nursing screen. Children in this area must be supervised by a parent or guardian. For the Rejoice! service, a similar area for families is available in the rear of the Life Center.
