Faith Formation

Designed for children and youth of all ages the Faith Formation Ministry inspires growing relationships with Christ and with one another. Combining learning, fellowship, and service events, programs are enthusiastically attended by our children and youth. Under the watchful eye of Diane Thomas, Director of Faith Formation, programs are offered which teach faith, nurture joy and security, and fill the halls with laughter and noise!

Children’s Sunday School

Weekly our children learn of Jesus, connect with friends, and experience Christ’s love through dedicated teachers. At 10:00, there are classes available for children 4 through 5th grade. Youth Sunday School Classes For both middle and high school youth, classes are offered each week at 10am. Our high schoolers participate in a Current Events’ curriculum, which discusses what’s happening in our world around us, and how we respond to and incorporate these events within our faith journey. Our middle schoolers study the Confirmation curriculum, which is taught in a three year rotation.
