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 Paula to set up a time to be baptized.

Pre-Kindergarten Bible Milestone

During a special worship service, pre-kindergarteners will receive a My New Story Bible.

Contact Kathy for more information.

Adventure Bible - Grade 3

During worship service, you and your child will be invited up front so we can give you, the parent, a Bible. You in turn will give it to your child.

Contact Mike for more information.
