Children and Youth ages 3 through middle school - 10:45 am
Faith Formation is at the very heart of the
church. The people of God, gathered in community,
grow in faith and in the ability to live out their faith
in daily life. This faith formation is the life-long,
ongoing process by which every Christian, young or
old, answers their baptismal call to follow Jesus.
Following Jesus – living the faith is being on a
journey. The journey begins in baptism and ends
with entrance into the promised eternal life.
People on the journey are always in the process of
becoming. Communities of faith become what God
has intended them to be. Individual Christians
become what God has called them to be – fully
formed disciples of Jesus Christ.
Children grow in the faith by the intentional action of
parents, pastors, teachers and other members of
the faith community.
Children and youth from Preschool (age 3) through
Middle School gather each Sunday to read and learn
the stories of the Bible, to grow in faith, to ask
questions, to explore what it is to follow Jesus, and
to discover how to put their faith into action in their
daily lives, within the congregation, and through
community service projects.
Our Sunday Kid Connect starts with our children,
youth, and adults gathering at 10:30 for food and
fellowship. We all share a song. Then the children
and youth go off for their Kids Connect time. The
adults and high schoolers are invited to join in a study
based on the Bible texts chosen for the day.
