Sunday morning, at 9:00 a.m. our Youth will be studying God’s word using Feasting on the Word. Together we will explore our personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community – building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples.  YOU are definitely invited to join us and learn or review the word of God.

10:45 am        Godly Play | age 7 & younger

All children are invited to participate in worship each Sunday morning. Younger children, following the children’s message, may exit to Millard Hall to participate in Godly Play.


What is Godly Play? Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play.
