Ages 3 - PreK

Preschool age children love story. It doesn’t matter the kind of story – they love to hear it and tell them over and over. At Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, we share God’s love through story, play, and social interactions.  The children hear stories at their level that connect with them and give them the understanding of God’s love they can then express to others in their unique way. Families are important role models for these ages and we do many things together.

Rainbow Kids Sunday School

The Rainbow Kids Sunday School program is a combined class for 3, 4, & 5 year olds who are not yet in kindergarten. The program is offered at 9:30 am. Each year, we choose stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament.

From mid-September through the first Sunday in May, children learn about God's awesome love for them through participation in chapel time, story time, arts & crafts, and games! This program needs many adults to serve as helpers. Time commitments range from one to several weeks. Our co-op Sunday School service allows parents to more fully participate in the nurturing of their child's budding faith.

Each year we require a new registration form for your child. This helps our staff and volunteers have the most current information for your child and your updated contact information. Please register your children online. Volunteer leaders lead the program and have their children in the program. For the program to run smoothly, we need a number of parents to volunteer each week. Our volunteer sign-up is online through Sign-up Genius. Please consider signing up for one spot every 4-6 weeks.

If you have any questions regarding Children’s Christian Education at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, please contact Becky at children@hslckirkland.org.

Jubilate Children's Choir

Ages 4 - 2nd Grade

Wednesdays 5:30-6:00

Jubilate is our children’s choir with age-appropriate songs and activities. We learn songs, explore instruments, and play games that introduce and reinforce musical skills. Along the way, we discover the different seasons of the church year and Bible stories. New children are always welcome and parents are invited to stay and participate along with their children.


Nursery Care

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

  • Choir

  • 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.
