We will worship
Children and youth bring gifts to worship. They model spirituality to adults. Kids age 3 through grade 5 worship with our Large Group Worship team each Sunday morning. Kids are encouraged to bring their parents to worship at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. in Mayflower Hall.
We will learn
We don’t teach children and youth what to think. We teach them how to think for themselves. We offer religious exploration from cradle to college. Our learning model is experiential, hands-on. We create spiritual experiences for children and youth, and small group leaders accompany learners on their spiritual journeys.
We will serve
We ask children and youth to put hands and feet to what they are learning. We have them put action to their faith and then reflect on how their actions affirm or challenge their faith. We strive to reach out into the church’s neighborhood and we partner with other not-for-profits to give learners the opportunity to commit intentional acts of service. Through service we grow our own souls.
We will build community
We are a visible and viable outpost for what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called the “beloved community.” Children and youth will make friends with their peers and across age lines. They will get to know adults who mirror their parents’ and guardians’ beliefs and values. They will be missed when they are unable to be at church. Their milestones will be celebrated. Through building community we acknowledge who we are and Whose we are.
