 children's ministry



The Nursery is available for children ages birth to 2 years old (and 3yr olds who are not yet potty-trained).  Our nursery program includes interactive play, worship music and a Bible story.

Little Lambs

Little Lambs is available for children ages 3 through Kindergarten. During Little Lambs, children engage with a hands-on Bible Lesson, music, free play, and lesson-related activities.  

Children must be potty-trained.

Sunday Kids Camp 

Sunday Kids Camp, for students in grades 1-4, meets weekly, except the first Sunday of the month when students join their parents in the sanctuary for worship and communion. Our SKC students engage with age-appropriate Bible Lessons and related activities (games, music, crafts).

Child dedication

Some parents, who personally emphasize believer baptism, will choose to publicly accept their responsibility of nurturing their child into the love and grace of God. Our child dedication liturgy is rooted in the biblical celebration of the blessing of life and birth, in Jesus blessing the little children as the sign of the kingdom of God (Mark 10:13-16), and in the message of God’s saving work through Christ for all, including children.


In the Evangelical Covenant Church, we practice both historic modes of Christian baptism: believer baptism and infant baptism. Each family chooses how they will participate in the sacrament based on their own faith background and theological convictions. Families are invited to pray and discern with a pastor to determine which mode of baptism they will emphasize in their household.

We offer Communion on the first Sunday of every month. We practice open communion and believe any follower of Jesus is welcome to the table of our Lord.  Children who have made a declaration of faith in Jesus are invited to participate, though we encourage parents and guardians to decide when their children are ready.  Children's Ministry is not offered for 1st-4th graders on Communion Sunday to encourage our families to worship together with their children.


This two year program is for all 7th and 8th grade students. Led by Pastor Lars, the goal of Confirmation is to present an overview of the Bible and church beliefs while offering participants the opportunity to make or strengthen their personal commitment to follow Christ. The class is taught during the school year typically on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.
