Family Friendly Spaces in the Meetinghouse

Announcing a rearrangement of the children's space in the meetinghouse to better accommodate families with younger children.

For our youngest worshipers, we have created a space for quiet play in the corner near the benches, so that parents are always visible. With comfy pillows for those sitting on the floor, it is equipped with books and soft blocks to occupy children who do not want to sit on the benches with the adults. Older children are still welcome to retreat to the platform where the facing bench once sat, where they too will find comfy floor pillows, books and a great view of the backyard.
