Cradle Roll is a ministry of Zion Lutheran designed to welcome new babies into the congregation. The mission of the Cradle Roll ministry is to help young children know that they are valued and loved by God by creating a welcoming environment during worship, fellowship time, and offering connections and resources to help parents introduce Jesus’ love to their child from birth to age 3.
Birth to 12 Months – Parents receive a variety of mailings through out their child’s first year – Parent Pages, a monthly parent newsletter that helps families incorporate faith formation into the events of daily life, a CD, “Lullabies on the Sleepy Time Tunes”, “Wonderfully Made,” a keepsake book with reflections, Bible verses, and space to record memories, and cards celebrating their child’s baptism, first Christmas and first birthday.
13 to 24 Months – Parents continue to receive Parent Pages monthly. In addition, they will receive the “Totally Toddler Tunes” CD which is filled with active Bible story songs and they will also receive cards celebrating their child’s baptism birthday and second birthday.
25 – 36 Months – Parents receive Parent Pages monthy, the CD, “Singable Sunday Tunes,” which introduces Sunday school songs, and cards celebrating their child’s third birthday.
If you are currently expecting a baby, or have a child under the age of 3 and have never received Cradle Roll information, please contact the church office to have your child enrolled. Every child born into or who otherwise becomes a member of our congregation is also placed on our Cradle Roll.
