Baptism

Baptism, one of two sacraments offered in the Lutheran church, welcomes all into God’s family. Baptism is the first Skipping Stone in our Skipping Stones ministry that celebrates significant moments in a child’s faith journey. Families are expected to attend a baptism workshop prior to the baptism of each child. Learn more on the Baptism Ministry page.

Nursery Care

We look forward to offering childcare for children ages birth to 5 during all weekend worship services. when it is safe to resume.  Children with special needs are always welcome. Our nursery is staffed by young adults and adults trained in CPR and first aid. Pagers are provided to parents/guardians in the event they need to be contacted during the service. No prior registration is required.

Digital Dock is a 12-15 minute broadcast following online worship services. These broadcasts will include an introduction/welcome by Children’s Team members, message from one of the Pastors, bonus challenge for the week, a song and a prayer and blessing. A Digital Dock Lesson email will be sent each week that will help to provide extra content to dive a bit deeper, beyond the video.
