To minister to families with new babies, we developed the Little Lambs Ministry. This provided families an introduction to our nursery so they’d feel comfortable bringing their babies to church.
When a new baby is born, volunteers from our committee visit the family with gifts and kind words once a week for the first four weeks. The first week the visit includes gifts of a stuffed lamb and a blank journal. The second week we give a baby calendar. The third week we give a preschool Bible, and with the last visit we give a gift certificate to a local restaurant for the parents.
With each visit we encourage the new parents and let them know our church is a warm, caring place where their new baby will be loved.
