We welcome children of all ages as important members of the body of Christ and of our congregations. We offer several Praygrounds in our worship spaces. These small tables are stocked with activities for young children who might not yet attend church school or who may need something to keep them occupied during worship. The prayground is not intended to be a nursery; instead it is intended to be a space for parents to sit with their children in an area that is designed for them!
The Sharon Lutheran Nursery is open for families to use. The nursery is not staffed. Parents and guardians must supervise their children at all times while using the nursery. Please pick up after yourselves and clean up any messes for which you are responsible. A breastfeeding room can be accessed through the nursery. Please use the changing tables in the public restrooms for diaper changes. Thank you! - The Lay Ministry Team
WELCOME TO BAPTISM CLASS
We welcome all to the font at Sharon. Baptisms are usually performed during worship. In preparation for baptism, we ask that you attend one of our “Welcome to Baptism” classes. Sponsors, if available, are welcome to attend in addition to parents or the individual to be baptized if applicable. Please contact the office (701-772-3122) for the schedule of when the next class will be offered.
This one-hour class is designed to help answer questions about baptism, including:
What is Baptism?
When should baptism occur?
What is my role as a parent, sponsor, or family member of the baptized?
Faith Formation Ministries recognizes that the seed of faith starts at birth and it is our covenant to grow and nurture that faith
by building relationships with our young people, by supporting young people's relationships with God, by living one’s faith through
mission and service, and by experiencing faith as a vibrant and compassionate way to live life connected to God and others.
