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 Summer of 2021, the Nursery continues to be closed. Young children are welcome to attend Worship in person in the Sanctuary, Outdoor Family Faith Formation or in your home with Online Worship and Faith Formation At Home. Our Nursery Ministry will resume when we are safely able to resume indoor in-person Children’s Ministry Activities. 

Pray & Play Sundays!!

Join our parent/child class for 0-3 year olds.
Start in Worship and then head to the Nursery after Time with Children for circle time with music & Frolic Bible story, craft & activity stations, and snack & parent chat time.

For the Summer of 2021 our Parent/Child Class for Babies & Toddlers will be part of our Outdoor Family Faith Formation Classes and Worship.

Nativity’s Kid Zone

Located in the Commons area close to the sanctuary, the Kid Zone is a place for toddlers and kids to play while supervised by their parents.

For the Summer of 2021 the Kids Zone remains closed. It will resume when we are safely able to resume indoor in-person Children’s Ministry Activities. 

Pray & Play Butterflies (Age 2)

For Summer of 2021, join us for Family Faith Formation Outdoor Classes & Worship or At-Home Lessons

There is no better time to start teaching children about Jesus than the toddler years. Our 2 year old faith formation helps to prepare your toddler for a more structured environment and they have fun learning about Jesus!
