Children & Youth Ministry
The stories of Jesus were intended to draw us into an exciting way of living. Jesus
understood that because the Gospel overturns conventional power dynamics, there
are parts of our life together that children and youth can absorb and enter into more
easily than adults. Our dedicated team of teachers seek to present the stories of Jesus,
offer creative application, and invite young people to become self aware participants
in their lives with God.
Our Sunday School takes place during our regular Sunday church service. Because we
want to help our young people develop a love of worship, we invite our children to be
part of the opening of worship with Psalms and Singing. After a brief children’s sermon,
they are invited to Sunday School that takes place during the remainder of the
Using a curriculum developed to engage our children’s desire for adventure and
exploration, our teachers seek to help children develop a relationship with Jesus that
will guide them all of their days.
Several of our teens have a deep love of drama, so we offer youth the opportunity to
engage with Biblical stories through a monthly skit. In preparing for each staged
reading, youth are encouraged to reflect on the story and take time to see how God
may be entering their lives as they prepare to present Scripture stories. There are set
and stage roles for those who may not want to speak in public. We aim to have a skit
performance every month. Rehearsal times vary to youth schedules.
We also invite our youth to serve alongside of us in our weekly Community Dinners.
