Birth - Age 2
Our littlest people are important to our congregation. Holy Spirit Lutheran Church offers a variety of activities to encourage young ones to use all their senses. We provide a sense of family for the children and the adults that allows everyone to make connections with others. The children create friendships that grow with them as they grow into elementary school and beyond.
Little Spirits is a fellowship community for families with children birth through pre-kindergarten. We strive to support one another while developing meaningful, long-term connections for the whole family. Our events throughout the year include games, crafts, service, and stories to have fun and grow in faith together. Join us for the fun and fellowship!
- Summer Picnic Lunch & Concert August 21st at Juanita Beach Park. More details in July
Our childcare attendants are on duty in the nursery for children ages 3 years and younger during Sunday mornings and certain specified events and classes. Some of the more popular times the nursery is used outside of worship include:
- Committee Night
- Congregational Meetings
- New Member Class
- Adult Education
- Parenting Class
Don't miss a great opportunity to challenge yourself, meet others, and grow in faith. If your event is not listed above, please contact the church office to request childcare. When childcare is available, donations are welcome.
Throughout the year, we have an infant nursery for those not yet walking and a toddler nursery for the children who are walking. We strive to create a safe, clean and loving environment for young children not yet able to sit through an entire church service. Parents are welcome to stay and play with their child to assist in acclimating him/her to the nursery. In the nursery, children are encouraged to share, take turns, respect each other, and to be helpful and gentle. We teach acceptance, understanding and interest in each other's differences, abilities and cultures. All staff must pass a criminal background check and have attended our Safe Haven Training program. They are trained in infant/child CPR and First Aid.
If you are new to using the HSLC Nursery, or would like to learn more about this ministry, join us at our annual Nursery Open House in September. Find out about our paging system, which allows nursery staff to page you during an event if your child needs immediate attention or if you have requested an update from the nursery. You can also tour the infant room and meet the nursery attendants. Our mission is to provide quality loving care for children, so that parents can participate in a variety of church programs.
To register, simply complete the Nursery Registration form. We need a new form completed each year so our staff have the most up to date information on your child.
Health Policy: We operate a well-child nursery. If your child is sick, has recently been sick, or has been exposed to a significant illness, please do not bring him or her to the nursery. We apologize for any inconvenience that may be caused by the well-child policy, but we do find that this helps significantly slow the spread of colds and illnesses among children, families, and staff.
