Nursery

While all ages of children are always welcome in worship, a nursery is offered for infants to 3-year-olds should the need arise. Our caring staff provide care during the 10:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday. The nursery is available for parents during the 8:30 am service on Sunday or the 6:30 pm service on Wednesday.  

Our clean, well-staffed nursery is available in the education wing, right outside the west doors of the sanctuary. The purpose of the nursery is to provide a safe, loving, fun and comfortable environment for both you and your child.  We do ask that children who are ill, or have recently experienced symptoms, refrain from attending until they are in good health.

We hope you’ll let us serve you and your children in our safe, fun, loving environment!! Please list all parents or guardians that will be responsible for the child at registration. If you are leaving your child in the nursery, it is important that one of the people listed be in the building so we can find them if needed.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

Motherhood comes with great joys, trials and frustrations. Wouldn’t it be great to have a support group, to meet other moms experiencing similar situations to yours?

Our MOPS ministry is celebrating the messes of motherhood this year and we encourage you to join us by considering joining our MOPS program at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 9:30-11:30 a.m., September - May, for breakfast, socializing, inspiration and informative speakers. Our chapter offers a terrific Moppets program for your children, if needed, so you can participate in our activities without the hassle of finding childcare.

We would love to embrace the messes of motherhood with you as we offer you the many benefits our ministry provides to mothers of young children, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.  

Sharing God’s Love,
Anne Ott, MOPS Coordinator
