New Baby

Are you welcoming a new baby through birth or adoption? We celebrate with you and want to support you as a parent from the beginning!

Share contact information and details about your new baby with Family Ministry staff by using the form below.

How We Support You:

We deliver care packages to parents of new babies as a small token of our love and support as we begin a beautiful journey together! Email Katie for details.

At Shepherd of the Valley, we baptize people of all ages! When an infant is baptized, we get a special glimpse at the pure grace of God — knowing that an infant can do nothing but rest securely in the loving arms of their people (and their God). Find more information about the Baptism process at Shepherd of the Valley.

We have a wonderfully stocked and staffed nursery at Shepherd of the Valley, and we love having little ones in our sanctuary during worship! Find more details about childcare and tips for worshiping with children.

Parenting an infant can be joyful and exhausting, lovely and lonely (sometimes all in the same afternoon). Find valuable connection and friendship with others in your life stage through one of our regular gatherings, like Moms Group or monthly Playtimes.

Interested in meeting other parents, but not seeing something that works for your schedule or COVID comfort? Contact Family Ministry Director, Katie Strand, to explore other options.

The jumble of emotions experienced after the arrival of a new baby is very normal, but it can be overwhelming! Please talk with your doctor if you’re struggling. We also invite you to reach out to a Shepherd of the Valley Pastor or Faith Community Nurse as other resources for prayer and support.

Before you know it, your little baby will be crawling, walking, running into preschool, and beyond! For an idea of what to expect as your child moves into new ages and stages of church life, check out the scope of our Children, Youth, and Family Ministries.
