Our church has subscribed to Frolic, a monthly online newsletter to help support parents in helping their young children take their first steps of faith. Content is based on the age of your child (birth - the month they turn three).

For your family to receive this E-newsletter, please email your child's name, birthdate, and up to four caregivers' emails (parents, grandparents, godparents, people supporting your child on their faith journey) or sign up in the nursery. Each newsletter is sent by Sparkhouse. You can opt out of receiving the E-newsletter at any time.
