Children, Youth, & Family Ministry Goals

  • Teaching the Biblical Story to the whole family.
  • Developing strong parental and caregiver faith.
  • Promoting family faith conversation, prayer, Bible reading, and service.
  • Equipping parents and families for faith formation.
  • Fostering Parent-Child/Youth relationships.

Children and Families in Worship

WORSHIP IS AT THE HEART OF OUR LIFE AS A CONGREGATION.

We know it is often hard to find the time and patience for worshiping as a whole family–many of us on staff have children and youth ourselves and we are right there with you! However, this congregation is committed to worshiping in a way that is engaging and meaningful for even the youngest members of our family.
