Here are just some of the many ways our children are growing in faith and love.
On Sunday mornings, we welcome children of all ages and backgrounds to worship and Sunday school. Our goal in Sunday School is to help children know the Word, grow in faith and show service to the world. It is our hope that with the inspiration of Bible characters, the guidance of the Spirit, and the support of our faith community, participation in Sunday School will strengthen our kids as disciples of Jesus Christ. Sunday School meets at 9:00am every Sunday morning.
Young children are welcome in worship, but sometimes they just need to do it their own way. Following "A Time for the Child," Children's Chapel presents Bible stories to preschoolers, kindergarteners and first graders in an engaging and reflective way, inviting them into the story and allowing them to wonder about the many different aspects of our faith. In Children's Chapel, Godly Play stories about the family of God will be presented each week, providing children a chance to dig into many of the stories in the Bible in a quiet and imaginative way.
CrossWalk: Faith and Fellowship for Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders
Once a month, all third, fourth and fifth graders are invited to spend time together having a good time learning about our faith! Together, we discuss Bible lessons and discover how they apply to our daily lives. Past activities have included bowling, movie nights, volleyball, car washes, scavenger hunts, swim parties, overnights, campfires and much more. CrossWalk also participates in mission projects around the church and in the community. Bring a friend to CrossWalk where faith and friendship intersect!
In the United Methodist Church, youth are invited to carefully consider their faith and commitment before joining the church as full members. Confirmation is a time of learning and growing, discovering and discerning designed to help 7th, 8th and 9th graders identify their beliefs and make a commitment to their ongoing journey of faith in the United Methodist Church. Confirmation is held in the spring every other year with other churches participating in our Joint Youth Group. The next class will be offered in the spring of 2018.
