Childrens ministry

Our mission is to intentionally grow as children gifted by God’s gift of mercy and called into action to love others as we have loved.  Our DNA is to be relational throughout all ages of ministry. Together we embrace the invitation to love Christ, live Christ, and share Christ with the world.

Children’s Ministry Special Events​ |

  • Baptismal Parties

    • Every year our families who have celebrated the sacrament of Holy Baptism with a member of their families will have worship and a pot-luck dinner to reconnect. Contact the church office to arrange a conversation with the pastors if you wish to have your child of any age baptized.

  • Parent Conversations about the Sacraments

    • Each year in March and April the pastors host a special conversation regarding the Sacraments for our children and parents. It is a special event for family faith leaders to talk with their young children about being a child of God, our Lutheran practices, and how to grow in our faith. Check out our newsletter in February of each year for more specific information.

First Time Guests & Check-In

When you arrive for an event, you will be asked to check-in at our welcome center. We will gladly assist you if you are joining us for the first time. All children must be registered for events and ministries. Some basic information will be recorded in our database to maintain the secure check-in system. We utilize the Church Center app to expedite our check-in process. You can use this weekly to check-in your children by selecting who you are checking in, and then scanning the automated QR code at the welcome center.

If you are 6th grade and under will receive a new name tag every week that has a security code that corresponds with a ticket for the parent or guardian to keep and is requested upon pick-up. To ensure children's safety, we will make sure the security codes match at the time of pick-up. 

If you are over 6th grade you will sign-in electronically on your own and receive a name tag that is expected to be worn on the front of your shirt throughout the event.

Policies: If you need to be contacted concerning your child, you will be contacted via the phone number you provided upon check-in or registration.
