We welcome children ages birth–3 years to be cared for during worship services and special events. A team of caregivers leads children in age-appropriate playtime, shares God-centered stories and songs, and prays for each child.

Register for Nursery & Check-In

If you plan to use the nurseries regularly, register your child(ren) with Family Discipleship Registration.

  • Each time you use the nursery, visit a Check-In Kiosk to check in and print nametags for your child(ren).
  • Nursery rooms are located in the lower level, below the Sanctuary (see map).
  • Looking for the Nursing Moms Room? Please ask at a nursery counter or contact Lisa Burk (612-338-7653 x495).

Dedicating Your Child

Parents must attend the Parenting by Way of Vision seminar in preparation for dedicating their child. These seminars are offered about three times a year. After the seminar, a pastor or an elder will schedule a home visit to meet the parents and child. Parents register (below) to schedule their participation in an upcoming Child Dedication Service.

Ministry Opportunities

Loving, nurturing caregivers strive to lay a solid spiritual foundation in the lives of the littlest ones at Bethlehem through intentional prayer, Bible lessons, and biblical truths. Opportunities to serve abound on weekends, various weekdays for MOMS, Bible studies, and special events.

Concerning time requirement, there is a lot of flexibility—choose to serve once a month, twice a month, weekly, and/or occasionally for special events.
