Children, Pre-K to grade 5, sit with their families for the first portion of the worship service and then adjourn to Reflection Stations also in the sanctuary for a Montessori-style exploration of a Bible story. Young children are welcome in the professionally-staffed nursery in the sanctuary between 9:15 and Noon on Sundays.
Youth, grades 6th-12th grade, choose among a variety of opportunities:
- Monthly “Lock In” style meetings. All youth join in fellowship and pizza to begin our evening. 6th -7th grade youth have their own “Paths to Peace” journey and leadership training. 8th-12th grade youth explore their spiritual lives and awakenings through prayer, service, and play.
- Confirmation meets two Sundays each month during the program year. Our confirmation youth provide vital leadership in our worship setting.
- Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education is for 7th-9th graders. This is a progressive approach to sexuality education that addresses the totality of human sexuality in an age-appropriate manner. A new series of classes will be starting in the fall of 2017.
