Faith Formation for Children
Learn about the Bible with friends! During the school year, “Sunday School” starts at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the sanctuary. Children leave for Faith Formation after the Children’s Time message and then they return in time to share Holy Communion with their families.
We have a single multi-age class (age 3 through fifth grade) that meets together during the sermon portion of the 9:30 a.m. worship service. All children are invited forward for the Children’s Time and then led to learn more about Jesus in a different setting–we call this J.A.M. (Jesus and Me!).
During the summer, children gather again for Children’s Time and then are dismissed for Praise Play, a play time that begins with a thank you prayer and ends with popsicles! This program is intended for the same age group. Weather permitting we are outside for Praise Play.
Faith Formation for Youth
All of our youth ministries focus on teaching the Christian faith to students from grades 6 through 12. Our Confirmation Ministry is for all 6th through 8th graders, and HS youth also meet on scheduled Sunday evenings. Our youth participate in service projects, fundraisers, and leading worship throughout the year. The picture to the right is from our High School Youth Trip to Appalachia.
Through the promises we make at Baptism, we are all called into authentic ministry with children, youth and with each other. Sustainable ministry to youth is the result of a congregational investment in young people. The Church needs to pastor youth instead of “doing” youth ministry. This includes building authentic relationships with people where they are – at restaurants, schools, at soccer games – as well as teaching how to engage with God. It is about building relationships with people of all ages and intentionally creating safe spaces where questions and discussion about faith is encouraged – even difficult questions or doubts.
Adult Faith Formation
We provide several opportunities for adults during the school year to study God’s word and how it applies to our lives. Join us to discuss and learn in various ways, including Bible study, reading books, and discussing our faith.
