Learning and Growing in Faith!
Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers are loved mightily in the nursery by Martie Aiello and Malinda Salazar, our two paid staff who have been trained in church safety with little ones. While parents are welcome to keep their little ones in worship with them, these two workers are more than happy to keep them for the service time — giving them play time, Bible music time, and learning about Jesus. These little ones will come into the worship service for A Time to Worship with Children. We always expect children to be children. And while we keep them safe, we also know that they are full of energy and enthusiasm about life. And we give thanks to God for such wonder!
School-aged kids up through 3rd grade have the opportunity to leave the sanctuary after the Time to Worship with Children part of the worship service. They will be taken to the classroom next to the nursery where they will have a Sunday School class and learn about Jesus with their peers.
Children in 4th grade and higher are encouraged to grab a worship bag and stay in the sanctuary to learn what worship is about and to be a physical part of the community of Jesus Christ.
On Sunday Evenings from 5:30-7:00 PM, FAITH SCOUTS is back in swing! Faith Scouts is an exciting VBS-style Christian education program for kids ages 2-grade 5. We encourage youth in 6-12th grades to help us in leadership. Parents are also participants in leadership, making it a real family learning environment.
Students in grades 6-9 are invited to join a Confirmation Class with Pastor Katie. If you have interest in learning more about what Confirmation is about in the Presbyterian Church, give Pastor Katie a call or an email!
Adults also have many opportunities to grow in faith. Sunday morning Sunday School takes place in the parlor at 9 AM and is taught by Jim & Bonnie Boroff and Karen Michniak. Tuesdays at 5 PM Pastor Katie teaches a lectionary study on the scriptures for the following Sunday. Other opportunities for spiritual growth are in the works as well.
