Education for Our Youth
“Nurturing a safe faith space through relationships with each other and with God.”
Our youth programs provide and nurture a safe faith space for youth in grades 7-12 through relationships with each other and with God. Our aim is to help young people meet the challenges of their lives in a manner that promotes wholeness, authentic faith, and respect of the self and others, through a deeper understanding of God’s love. Our vision is to model for the congregation and families just how essential our youth are to the church of today and tomorrow. Out hope is to be a catalyst for re-igniting a church that lives out its faith together with all generations working and growing together.
During the program year, September through May, we offer several different opportunities for teens to be involved in the church throughout their junior high and high school years and to give our teens opportunities to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith as they embark upon and continue in their spiritual journeys. All of our youth programs strive to build community and fellowship through educational, spiritual, social, and outreach activities and provide teens with a safe place to seek pastoral care. In addition to Sunday gatherings, we also plan special activities for fun and community service.
