The Purpose of the Faith Formation & Fellowship Core Ministry (FFFM) is to offer opportunities for all people in all stages of life to grow in their relationship with God and each other so that they may be transformed and live with Christ-like love and compassion.
We offer Faith Formation opportunities for a variety of age groups. We offer worship bags with age-appropriate activities and snacks so children can stay with their parents in the sanctuary.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
All of our Faith Formation leaders have had a background check.
All of our rooms have one adult leader.
Children in Kindergarten through Fifth grade begin the morning in with you in worship and leave for Godly Play after the children's time message. Children meet their leaders in the back of the sanctuary and are taken to their rooms. Godly Play is over close to when worship is over. Please pick your children up from their room, but kindly wait outside until your child’s leader dismisses them to avoid disruptions.
Youth in 6th to 12th grade meet after worship in the Heritage Room by the fellowship hall for a faith-based discussion of today's issues.
For the safety of all our children, if you would like to visit your child’s room please arrange this ahead of time.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns please contact the Chair of FFFM, Terry Rosenberry.
Our Nursery is available during our 10:00 a.m. service.
Our Godly Play program is for children, Kindergarten through fifth grade, to participate in Montessori-style worship. Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them explore their faith through story, gain religious language, and enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play.

Sixth through twelfth graders meet regularly after worship to engage in discussions that connect real life and faith.
