All ages of children are welcome to stay with parents throughout our services. For parents who wish to focus on the service, we provide nursery care for infants through age 2. The nursery is available for both the 8:30 and 11:00 services each Sunday, as well as for Adult Education at 10:00. Please sign your child in, providing a cell phone number that can be texted. You will be contacted if your child needs you. You may pick your child up from the nursery at the breaking of the bread for a blessing, or wait until the end of the service.
Breastfeeding is welcome everywhere in our church. We do provide a private, comfortable feeding room for mothers and infants who wish for a bit more privacy. The entrance is located inside the nursery area. A speaker is located inside the room so that you may continue to hear the service.
During the sequence hymn, children ages 3 through 3rd grade are escorted to our Children’s Chapel. The children listen to the same Gospel reading and enjoy a short, interactive lesson with our adult and youth volunteers. At the peace, 1st-3rd graders are escorted back to join their parents for the Eucharist. Preschoolers and Kindergarteners enjoy a snack, coloring page, and playtime before returning at the breaking of the bread.
As parents we are commanded to instruct our children in the faith. Deuteronomy 6:5-7 directs “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.“
At Holy Comforter we are committed to supporting parents in instructing their children in the faith. Our curriculum is focused on learning how the whole Bible points to Jesus Christ as our Savior.
