Children and youth

Christians are formed in community. To that end, we are committed to working with parents in four areas to raise godly children. 


Church: We strive to be a small, healthy church, where our children can know and be known by other Christians. 

Worship: Our liturgy is our most important children's ministry. By worshiping with us week after week, our children are formed in the Christian faith. 

Home: The rhythms of our worship service overflow into the home through helpful spiritual practices like following the Christian Year, having regular times of devotion, and participating in the Examen. 

Programming: We provide a light touch of programming that is consistent with our overall philosophy for both children and youth. Here are the programs that our church provides: 


YOUTH

Youth family (7th-12th grade) meets in the church building on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm for teaching, small groups, snacks, and games. We also organize retreats, projects, and other activities and events to help foster Christian community among our youth. 


CHILDREN

We provide the following care for children on Sunday mornings:

Nursery (ages 0-1): There is a nursery in the foyer staffed by two volunteers, who will watch and care for your children while you remain in the worship service; you may attend to them at any time. 

Toddler Room (ages 1-3): There is a toddler room down the back hallway staffed by two volunteers, who will watch and play with your children while you remain in the worship service; you may pick them up later in the service during the Passing of the Peace. 

Godly Play (ages 3-6): There is a Godly Play classroom at the end of the hallway, where two trained volunteers will teach your children the story of the Bible through play, storytelling, and wonder. We ask that all participants be seated in the classroom by 10:10, at which time the doors close and the program begins. Your child will be brought to you during the Passing of the Peace.
