Children's Church

Children's Church is held during the 10:45 am contemporary service in the Family Life Center. Children, ages 3-6, will be dismissed before the sermon for a 20 minute Bible lesson and crafts/songs. This time will help grow their faith.

For more information or if you are interested in assisting with Children's Church, contact Lea Webb, Co-Director of Children and Family Ministry, at .

Nursery

During the summer months, nursery care will be available during the 9:30 am service only. Please know that children are welcome in all of our worship services! God loves the little children, and so do we!

If your child needs a break during worship, feel free to use the nursery / preschool rooms (115, 117) during Sanctuary services and Room 151 in the Family Life Center during the contemporary service (this service is typically streamed into that room).

As a reminder, there are rainbow bags available in both locations filled with books and other small items for the children to use during service. There are also books and often weekly handouts for the kids on the tables outside of the Sanctuary and Family Life Center. Please, help yourself!

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, Co-Director of Children and Family Ministry, at for more information, an assessment form for your child, or volunteer opportunities.

Baptism Class

Welcome to the Family! Lutheran Baptism Theology and Practice is 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.
