We offer play days Monday through Friday in the nursery classrooms in the Sanctuary. Playday is for children ages 6 months -24 months as of August 31. Your child will enjoy crafts, outdoor play, stories, and fun in a Christian environment while you get some time for yourself! Our classes have a 1:5 teacher-to-child ratio, with a maximum of 10 students.

If your child will be two years or older by September 1, Bright Beginnings Early School offers excellent two, three, and five day programs for ages 2 through 5. Children in play day receive preference in enrollment at Bright Beginnings, and we work very closely with Bright Beginnings for a successful transition to preschool.

Infant and Child Baptism

Baptism is a divine act, a pledge and gift God gives to us. Baptism of children includes the reaffirmation of the vows of the baptismal covenant by parents, sponsors, and the congregation; but chiefly it celebrates what God is doing and will do in the life of the infant or child. If you are ready to lead your child into a life of discipleship to Jesus Christ, with the support of this church, contact us.
