For nursery care (infant to 3-years-old), please check in at the nursery in the lower level of the church and receive a pager. If your child needs you during the worship service, your pager will light up and buzz. At the close of worship, go back to the nursery to return your pager and sign your child out.

Child Dedication

Members of The Orchard are welcome to participate in child dedication. Child dedication is an acknowledgment by parents that they have been entrusted with their child by God. It is also a commitment to teach, train and model godliness for your child — a pledge you are asked to take publicly, before God and our church family.

The next child dedication is May 12. If you’d like to participate, fill out a child dedication request form by April 28.

Please see the Student Ministries page for 6th to 12th grade information
