The purpose of Children and Family Ministry is to help families develop meaningful relationships with God and others, engage with church rituals and traditions, make faith relevant to daily life, and find Christ’s comfort and HOPE—even in the midst of a pandemic.
Choose from three pathway classes for families on Sundays, registration is required, with a minimum of five (5) families participating for the class to be held. If you would like to have a conversation about which option best meets your family’s desire to grow in faith, please contact Christine Hides or Greta Connor.

Nothing can “turn your frown upside down” like keeping a gratitude journal! Particularly during these times of uncertainty and difficulty, reminding yourself of God’s gifts can be quite healing and helpful.
