Faith Formation

Education for all ages

Engaging our heads, hearts, and hands as we grow in Grace

Children’s Faith Formation – 9:30 AM Sunday Mornings
K-6th Grade meets weekly to explore the Bible, church life, their faith, and to fellowship together. The kids meet in classrooms, but their time together is unlike a traditional classroom setting. They will learn by building, painting, singing, dancing, getting messy, exploring nature, and more. Lessons span three-week blocks with teachers rotating for each block. The goal is to immerse the children in the lessons, so they want to come and “finish what they started” last week and to have more adults in the church involved in their faith.


All 9th grade and older youth are invited to participate in confirmation. The class is geared towards their personal faith formation journey and culminates with the writing of their faith statement. Classes cover Old and New Testament, what it means to be a Presbyterian, service, and more.  Class start varies. Contact the Coordinator of Children & Family Ministries for more information.
