Youth

Our Approach

All baptized people are full members of the body of Christ regardless of age. We trust that God is present to and working in our children, and that they can hear and respond to God. Our task as teachers and mentors is to listen to children and their parents/guardians and to cultivate the natural faith that God is growing in them. Our task is also to give them the stories (scripture) and prayers that we have received through the Church and found blessings in our own walks with Christ.

As important as knowledge and practice for children is their experience of true Christian community. We seek to create small communities of children and teachers that are loving, forgiving circles of friends. We trust our children will learn as much by living the good news as in studying it.
