Where is the United Parish Nursery?
Our nursery is located on the second floor, in Room 203. Our nursery caregivers include paid staff and volunteers. We occasionally ask parents to assist in the nursery. Please let the nursery staff know if you are interested in volunteering.
What should I bring?
Please bring a labeled bag which includes a pacifier, two diapers, a change of clothes, and all personal items your child may need such as wipes, ointment, bottles, or comfort items. (If you include snacks, remember allergies of others may prevent staff from serving your child).

Our United Parish Community has organized a Google folder of videos of United Parish friends reading books and Bible stories to enjoy in your homes. Please contact Katy at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the link. Please use these as a way to stay connected and feel nurtured by others in our community. Please do not post these publicly as they are created for private sharing. If you would like access to the folder to add your own read-aloud video, please contact Amy at email@example.com or Katy at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to access the folder because you do not have a Google account, please let the Church Office know (email@example.com) and we can look for alternative ways to share them with you.
