Your child’s safety is our top priority. Before the service, check your child in at the computer, located in the courtyard. Children attend worship with their family and are released to their classes after the Confession. Children may be picked up at the following locations after worship:

  • Nursery: Newborn – 2 years old
  • Preschool Room 1: 3 years old – Kindergarten
  • Room A2: Grades 1 – 3
  • Room B1: Grades 4 – 5

No children’s programming is offered during the 11am worship service. Please pick up an activity bag at the back of the church for your child to keep and enjoy.

Keeping the Promise

Classes and milestones nurturing your child’s faith

We partner with you in your child’s spiritual growth, helping you keep your promise to nurture their faith and celebrate their spiritual milestones.

Keeping the Promise classes and milestone celebrations are designed to complement your teaching at home and help you raise people who can depend on the spiritual knowledge they gained in childhood and pass it on to the next generation.


In baptism, our sins are washed away. We’re adopted into God’s family and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, faith, and salvation. Children and adults can be baptized any time.

Contact the church office to set up a time to be baptized.
