Children, ages 3-6, will be dismissed before the sermon for a 20 minute Bible lesson and craft/color time. This time will help grow their faith.

Our nursery provides childcare for Sunday worship services for infants and toddlers in rooms 115 and 117 of the Preschool wing. Please sign your child in with adult nursery attendant.

Due to several children with food allergies, no food or snacks will be allowed
in the nursery on Sundays.

Without Boundaries

Without Boundaries is a ministry for families who have children with special needs. A safe environment for children that allows them to learn and know God's love on a weekly basis.

All children have the opportunity to listen to a Bible story and participate with the lesson, sing and play a musical instrument, create a craft, learn the Lord's Prayer, and have one on one time with a buddy (trained helper). Each class has a teacher and several buddies who model Christ's love and provide hands-on help as needed.

While children participate, the families can worship together at 10:30 or 10:45 services. We meet each Sunday morning from 10:30 am-12:00 pm. Please contact Lea Webb for more information, an assessment form for your child, or volunteer opportunities.

Baptism Class

Welcome to the Family!
Lutheran Baptism Theology and Practice

Held twice per year in the fall and spring during the education hour (9:15-10:15 am), this one session class is for parents who are planning to have their child baptized at Resurrection. This class will help you understand Lutheran Baptism Theology and Practices. Families are requested to participate in order to be prepared for their child's baptism. There will be time for instruction and time to allow you to meet and form connections with other Resurrection families. All materials will be provided.

My Bible and Me (3rd Grade Children and Parents)

This course is designed to help parents see the main message of Holy Scripture and how to share that message with their 3rd grade children at home. In the fall, the class will meet three times. Following the final class, parents and children are invited to the 10:30 am worship for a rite of blessing and presenting of Bibles to children by parents. Classes are held in Room 244 of Family Life Center from 9:15-10:15 am and is led by MaryAnn Unger.

3:00 Christmas Eve Service

This service is strongly focused on families with young children. We will sing some simple Christmas Carols, do some interactive Christmas verses, walk through the Fellowship Hall to visit with Mary, Joseph, the Innkeeper, and others to hear them share their part in the Christmas story. We will also all head out to the manger and sing Away in a Manger and Silent Night before closing the service. The children will have the option of putting on shepherd or angel clothing before heading to the manger. We hope you will join us for this new event! Feel free to bring your cameras!
