Children and Youth
Children through fifth grade are welcome to worship with you or participate in our Christian Education program during the service. We offer a nursery with a skilled, trained, paid attendant for the littlest ones for families that may wish to use it.
On Communion Sundays, class ends early and everyone participates in communion together.
As you enter the sanctuary you will see a "tree" with Worship Buddy Bags. In these bags are items for children to help them if they get restless.
There are also special bulletins just for kids - one for Readers and another for Pre-Readers - located on a table next to the Worship Buddy Bags.
Please let our Minister for Faith Formation, Jeremy Shaver, know if you have any questions or special needs.
We have Youth Group for young people from middle school to high school. They meet every Sunday evening at 5:30 pm during the school year and engage in a wide variety of activities from discussion to social justice and compassion work. Most of the youth in our church participate in a week long service/learning trip to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota at least once. Two of our youth group members even became staff members on the Rez after their transformational experiences.
