Infant & Toddler
Quiet Room & Nursery
Children are welcome in all of our worship services! There are Storybags available for children to use during services. These bags contain a storybook, crayons, a children's worship bulletin and a quiet snack. But if wiggles and restlessness get the best of you and your little one, a Quiet Room is located right outside the Worship Center. There are windows to view the sanctuary and audio to hear the worship service while comforting your child. We also have a Nursery available during most regular worship services and education classes.
Gabriel's Ministry of Sheridan Lutheran Church is a prayer and support ministry as well as a connecting community offering comfort, understanding, friendship and encouragement. Click here for more information.
First Steps for Baptism
Baptism is a big event! To help prepare for this special time, we ask that parents attend a special class, "First Steps for Baptism". The class will include teaching about the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, give you an opportunity to meet other families preparing for this special day and offer some encouragement for you as Christian parents. You are welcome to bring your baby along and the nursery is available for older siblings. You can contact the church office to schedule the baptism prior to attending the class. Contact Kathy Paisley in the church office with any questions.
Babies in Christ
Babies in Christ Ministry for parents and newborns offers a bridge for each family to connect with our church family. We provide encouragement to new parents during this very sacred time. A mentor is assigned to provide support and prayer for you and your baby. Your mentor also hosts your family at church on your baby’s Baptism Day. If you are looking forward to the birth of a child in the near future or have recently given birth to a baby and are looking forward to the baptism of that child, please contact the church office at email@example.com to become connected with a Babies in Christ Mentor.
What about Baptismal Sponsors?
Baptismal sponsors play a very important role in your child's faith life. Before choosing sponsors for your child, you are encouraged to contact your family and friends who are worshiping, active Christians. When asking a person or a couple to sponsor your child, consider the commitment involved in baptismal sponsorship. A sponsor should pray regularly for your child, remember their baptismal birthday, be a model of love, care, and Christ-like kindness, and see that your child is brought up in the Christian faith at home and within the Christian community.
Two by Two’s
