Our Kid Philosophy  

We are committed to the spiritual growth of all members of our faith community. We have intentionally adopted a style of children’s education that has our children included in our worship services. Children in worship is a spiritual formation approach that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. Children participate as they are able, some read, some greet as people arrive, and others bring their musical gifts to our worship. Children and adults are invited to experience the wonder and mystery of God through story-telling in the children’s focus and sermon, through activities offered in the chapel and with the use of At Home Resources. Children are full participants in the household of God - full members of the family. We are excited to offer this integrated worship/learning experience.

Young Adult (YA) Sacred Text Studies & Meditation 
Sundays 12 pm - 1 pm over Google Meets.

 

We will use the SCM Contextual Bible Study Model to explore the Bible, as well as various sacred texts. In the SCM Contextual Bible Study Model, "the Bible [and other sacred texts are] not a static text with one correct interpretation. We read... with attention to a web of relationships in which we exist. Age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social and economic status, sexual orientation, disability and other identities influence the power we have in our relationships. Understanding power dynamics is often essential in understanding the Bible [and other sacred texts] and our own social context, and can help us learn to see and use power differently – in ways that empower ourselves and others, rather than diminishing or exploiting."
