Children's Resources

When you find out you are expecting a baby, please let us know! We want to pray for your family, begin planning meals for your first few weeks home with your new addition, and help you consider the decisions you will need to make about your child's spiritual formation.

Infant Baptism Baby Blessing

STEP 1: Upon the birth of your child, please share with your campus contact so that we can begin your meal schedule, schedule your Baptism, and deliver a gift for your family. 

STEP 2: If your family has decided that you desire Infant Baptism for your child during one of our Sunday morning worship environments, please contact Lori Haupt to schedule the date. This should occur within three months of the baby's birth. 

STEP 3: Once your child makes a profession of faith, we would like to celebrate with your family and the church congregation by sharing the GOOD NEWS with our church family and giving your student a gift to mark the occasion. Please share the news with your Campus Pastor or Campus Director of Children's Ministries.

The next significant step in your child's spiritual formation will be joining our Middle School Ministry - this transition will happen through a Rising 6th Grade Meeting in the fall of each year. 

Upon reaching 9th Grade, students are encouraged to join Reynolda Church at our Student Membership Lunch held twice a year.
