Children & Family Ministry
We Coordinate Fun, Faith-filled Activities for Families with Young Children. At Our Savior’s, we believe our children offer us a glimpse of God’s love on earth, and we empower them to make a difference in the world around them, serving God in their own lives. We hope these events allow our children to learn about God’s love while feeling a part of a special community and making lasting friendships. Fellowship and Service opportunities bring families together throughout the year!
Programs are on hold due to Covid related restrictions.
Please contact Shelly@oslc-elca.org to learn more.
Noah’s Park Nursery is open Saturday Evening and Sunday Morning during Worship and Education Hour. We strive to have our nursery staffed by caring, fun adults, and youth trained volunteers.
Our Nursery is a place for families to accompany or drop off their children under 4 years of age if needed during worship. We encourage families to worship together at all worship services. Please know that it is possible to hear worship from the nursery through speakers with a volume control on the wall.
We encourage parents to volunteer in the Nursery during worship, once every two months. Thanks for not bringing food into the nursery; this keeps everyone safe!
We do welcome labeled feeding bottles for little ones.
During worship or adult education we have complimentary vibrating pagers for parents use, so Nursery Volunteers can notify you if the need arises anywhere in the building.
You will be paged if your child had a diaper that needs to be changed immediately or is inconsolable. This is at the discretion of the nursery volunteers. Be assured the nursery volunteers will do their best to engage your child with play and stories about Jesus.
