We offer a children's program on Sunday mornings starting at 9:45 for children up to 12 years of age. The kids are engaged in Sunday School and creative projects through the first part of the service and rejoin their parents for communion. Children are involved in the liturgy at every opportunity--participating in our music, bringing up the elements and ushering. They also participate in outreach activities whenever age-appropriate.
Our youth group packs weekend food for nutritionally insecure students at Mills River Elementary School once a month during the school year. They participate in community projects such as "A Day On" for Martin Luther King Day and other service projects, as well as church-centric activities, hosting a Pancake Supper and Christmas Karaoke party. Every year, the youth group participates in an overnight Compline ministry, in which they travel to sites and pray for those who are working, watching and weeping.
During the summer months, we partner with other local churches to sponsor a reading program for the children at La Capilla de Santa Maria. We read with the children to foster a love of reading and help them retain the skills they learned in school.
Shifting our focus to the world stage, through our Outreach Ministry, we support two students at the Durgapur Child Study & Development Center in India, which provides education, food and medical care to its students.
"Children are not only our future; they are our present.”
