Get Involved in Forming Faith - Teachers NEEDED!
Would you like to be a part of a planning team for adult, youth or children's formation? Do you like to tell stories, or make crafts, or play games? Maybe you'd like to lead some of our children's programs. Are you someone who likes to discover or work together to find the answers to questions? Sounds like walking with our youth in their faith journey might just be the right place for your ministry. Have you have been on a study tour, or taken a class on prayer, or been involved with a great ministry program? Consider being a presenter for one of our adult forums. Email or talk with Sue!
Children's Formation Programs
This week, September 11, is Homecoming Sunday and we ask that all children bring their backpacks for a blessing on Sunday. If you have also shopped for a backpack to give away - this is the day to bring them to the church. If you still need a list for shopping just click here
We begin classroom programs for children on September 18 with a focus on what we believe, how we pray, and learning the stories of Jesus. We hope your children will join us for learning, fun, games, activities and growing in faith. Register your children here.
Youth Programs for 2016-2017
There are two new ways for youth to engage in fun and formation during this program year and we are excited about what will happen! Register youth here for this year's programs and be sure to fill out the year-long permission form.

This is open to all youth in grades 5 through 12 and will be lead by both Sue and Jeff. It will include games, community building, and being formed in faith. Some of the formation program will be specifically directed toward preparing youth for Confirmation.
