Due to public health concerns surrounding Covid-19, we have suspended group activities, including in-person children and youth gatherings, until further notice. However, we encourage you to join us for our livestream worship each Sunday at 10:00 AM, in addition to online children and youth activities throughout the week.

“You are the light of the world. A city on top of a hill can’t be hidden.”

—Matthew 5:14

September 2019

I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.  We have a full year ahead of us with mission trips, bible stories, bouncy houses, and building relationships with one another and with God.

Join us for our vibrant children and youth ministry! No matter how small or young we are, the words from Matthew remind us to keep our light shining for the world to see. We encourage you to learn more about our children and youth programs by exploring the sections below. Please join us on Sunday to see what the fun is all about or reach out to Ben Pulaski, our Minister of Christian Faith Formation at 781-729-9180. Shine on!

Sunday Classes

Children’s Chapel Service: All Grades (Pre-k through 12th grade)
The first Sunday of each month all of the children and youth of our church will worship together in a Chapel Service (though because of the renovation of the Chapel…some months it may be held other places in the church). During worship together, we will have guest adults inspire the youth with their faith stories or something that they are passionate about. The older youth will help to lead the service. We will begin in the Chapel these weeks instead of heading to the sanctuary first. At the end of the service, the youth will head into the sanctuary and participate with their families in Communion.

Stepping Stones classes for Grades Pre-K through 5th
Stepping Stones is our weekly Sunday School program. This fall we will be learning about Samuel and David. We will begin each week (except for the first Sunday of each month) in the sanctuary and leave for our classes after the Time for the Young. Read more about Stepping Stones…

Grades 6th-12th
This year all of our high school and middle school youth will be offered a time to learn and study the bible and how it relates to our lives today. Each week of the month will be a slightly different offering which allows the youth to participate any time they are available.

  • First Sunday of the Month: Chapel Service
  • Second Sunday of the Month: Nooma Discussions and Video
  • Third Sunday of the Month: Sanctuary Worship or helping in the Stepping Stones Classes
  • Fourth Sunday of the Month: Bible Study led by Ben Pulaski
  • Fifth Sunday of the Month: Mission Sunday (We will do some sort of outreach or mission project)


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 Ben Pulaski if you can help.
