We believe that children of all ages growing up in the church are formed as much outside the classroom as within it. Helping parents access age-appropriate ways to participate in and reflect on our liturgical life, our sacred stories, our call to Christian service, our charge to share the Good News, and our shared spiritual life is essential to our ministry with children.
Additional seasonal celebrations offer occasions for both Christian fellowship and service for children and their families. We take care to mark both the secular and liturgical year with events such as the beginning of the school year back pack blessing, blessing of the animals, Advent wreath making, a children’s Christmas pageant, Lenten palm cross making, and Vacation Bible School. We also simply enjoy fellowship together with periodic family outings.
