Kids Pre-Birth Through Age 3

Beginning Families of Faith

A class for parents, godparents, and grandparents of children awaiting baptism or recently baptized. The class focuses on helping adults pass on a living faith to children. Participants will review what they want for children, faith formation in children and practical ideas in passing on a trusting relationship with God.

To register please call or email Pastor Ben Schori

Baptism

Baptisms are performed at all services. The service is determined by the family’s preference. We schedule baptisms at the Saturday, 5:30pm service any weekend and at the 9 and 10:30 a.m. services on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month.

Pray & Play Nursery for Ages 0-3 Years

In our nursery your child will experience a safe, loving and creative environment staffed by adult and youth caregivers who are ready to welcome your young child during Worship. Parents and other adults in our Nursery Co-op support Play-n-Pray Nursery by being caregivers or subs on a monthly schedule or as arranged.

For the Fall of 2021, the Nursery continues to be closed. Young children are welcome to attend Worship in person in the Sanctuary, Outdoor Faith Formation Classes or in your home with Online Worship and Faith Formation At Home
