Christian Formation for Children and youth

Christian Formation is on summer break.

2023-24 program season: September 10, 2023 - May 19, 2024

Sundays 9:15 aM*

Ages 3.5 - Grade 12

Nursery open during Formation hour from 9:15 to 10:15 for ages 0 to 3.5

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.” We, too, welcome children into our Christian family, cherishing them and nurturing them so they can come into a fuller relationship with Christ and the church. Our programs do not simply provide information about God, but create an environment for encounters with God through worship, biblical exploration, prayer, and fellowship.
