Faith formation

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 are looking forward to starting Faith Formation classes again in fall 2022. 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 begin the morning in with you in worship and leave for Faith Formation during our opening song.  Children meet their leaders in the back of the sanctuary and are taken to their rooms.

  • Faith Formation 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.

  • 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.

Don’t worry about dressing everyone up, you’re welcome no matter what you wear.

3.

Have a special, but easy breakfast on Sunday mornings that everyone looks forward to.

NURSERY

Our Nursery is available during our 10:00 a.m. service.

GODLY PLAY

While Godly Play for our younger children is currently suspended, we provide worship bags with age-appropriate activities and snacks so children can stay with their parents in the sanctuary and look forward to the return of our Godly Play in fall 2022.​

Our Godly Play program is for children, Kindergarten through second 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.

 
 

YOUTH GROUP

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