Children, Youth, & Families

A welcoming space for all kids.

Because we should never stop growing in faith.

Teaching our children to be compassionate and service-oriented people of faith is one of our core values. We have youth events for teens and younger kids. ALL kids are welcome. The events are great opportunities for kids to meet up, make friends, and help others. Check our calendar or email us to see when the next gathering is scheduled and get more information. 

The Annual Teeter-Totter Marathon

Thanks to the inter-generational participation of our church, led by our youth, and the amazing generosity of our community, we raised $12,200 during the 2022 Teeter-Totter Marathon! All funds benefitted Second Mile Outreach food pantry and The Gathering Place cancer support center. Our goal was to raise $10,000 and we surpassed that by raising more than $12,000.  

Thank you to the youth for planning this successful event, and for all who donated and participated.

Family game night

Family Game Night is for congregants and guests of all ages to gather for fellowship and laughter. We play kickball, cornhole, and many other games. Look out! Outdoor Jenga can get a bit competitive! During inclement weather we play board games and other indoor games. Grab a piece of pizza and join the fun! 

Confirmation

Confirmation is the portion of a young person’s lifelong faith journey during which they begin to form their own views about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, mission and the church. It is their chance to say “yes” to the promises their parents made at their baptism and for the church to say “yes” to their growing faith. Confirmation is an 18-month commitment of learning, questioning and exploring that usually begins in middle school and culminates in the rite of confirmation, generally held on Pentecost. The next confirmation class will start in January 2023 and confirmation will be on Pentecost, May 19th, 2024.
