“Faith experienced at an early age is the foundation for all other growth. The good news that what we share with our children has the power to transform lives and revitalize communities… Faith formation is a lifelong process that happens through relationship with God. Faith is active, always in process, constantly transforming us to be more like Christ. Faith is also relational. We grow in faith within the context of a loving, accepting community. If conditions are nurtured, children will grow in their understanding of God and Jesus, as revealed by the Spirit through scripture and Christian community.”
There are many special activities throughout the year, including an Easter Egg Hunt and egg decorating contest, plays or musicals, and making Valentines and taking them to a nursing home. The youth do several service projects throughout the year from Heifer Project to MLK presentation, to working with the homeless. One of the highlights is the Hanging of the Greens, which includes a hayride to find and cut the giant tree for the sanctuary, making decorations and decorating the tree, a soup and sandwich dinner, and singing Christmas hymns in the sanctuary as the tree is lit.
