Children & Youth Ministry

Love God, Love Others, Show Others how to Love God

We are excited to announce that Maggie Keeler, mother of two, long-time Stepping Stones teacher, and Co-Chair of the Children and Youth Faith Formation Ministry, will be continuing on the role of Interim Children’s Program Coordinator for the 2022-2023 church year!  
We’ve been planning and prepping and now it’s almost time to welcome families back for another amazing year. As you can imagine, the ongoing search for an Associate Pastor has made envisioning our children and youth programs a bit tricky but we’ve put together a plan that will allow our programs to adapt and flourish until they arrive.


Nursery  (Infants – Age 3) 

Nursery Open!

The nursery will reopen to babies and toddlers on Sept 11th. We have a wonderful group of nurturing high school students to care for the youngsters during Sunday services.

Stepping Stones (PreK – 5th grade)

Elementary students will gather weekly starting Sept 11th at 10:00 AM. Each Sunday, the children will begin in service for Time for the Young and then move with their teachers to Stepping Stones where they will do activities designed to engage Bible stories.

Junior Forum (6th grade – 8th grade)

Maggie and an amazing group of volunteers will be leading weekly meetings for middle school students beginning on Sept 25th. The youth will join the congregation for the start of worship at 10:00 AM and then move down to the Forum Room for games, activities and discussions. We’ll continue to focus on community building and community service as we explore different passages from the Bible each week.


Forum (9th grade -12th grade)

Forum will return on Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM starting Sept 25th. Weekly sessions will be led by Rev. Maeve and our dynamic Forum leaders along with a few special guests. Check the church calendar for youth favorites including the overnight, progressive dinner, ski trip, and mission trip.

Adults Needed!

We are always looking for adults to assist with our youth program. We have opportunities for assistant teachers for Stepping Stones, small group leaders for the youth programs, second adults for Forum and other activities, and chaperones for mission trips and other outings. There is always some way to connect with the youth, and you will find that your faith grows as your help others learn more about who they are and their place in God’s world. Email Maggie if you can help.
