PAKT

gathers Parents and Kids Together monthly and provides an opportunity for Parents (or guardians) to journey with their fifth, sixth or seventh grade child in a two year journey. In year one, the focus is teaching your child about God and providing intentional activities to help guide conversations around prayer, blessing, images of God, and finding God in the everyday. In the second year the focus is on human sexuality education, utilizing the Our Whole Lives Program.

Missions

High Schoolers can also engage in a four year cycle of life impacting mission trips that include a pilgrimage to a local, regional, national, and international setting.

also use the Shine curriculum learning ways to love God and share that love with others.

Confirmation

7th/8th graders are invited to join the intentional journey of faith called Confirmation that begins in the fall and culminates in the rite of Confirmation in the spring. Youth will experience connecting the Jesus stories to our our stories, finding ways to serve, learning about and helping to lead worship, going on field trips, and so much more make a journey worth sharing and faith worth exploring.
