Christian Education For Children and Teens
Our faith formation programs are deeply rooted in the wider mission of our church. We invite children of all ages to join us as we explore faith stories and journeys. Our youngest church goers are welcome to join our nursery staff during church services. Infants and toddlers enjoy play times, stories and crafts during service with our profession nursery staff and volunteers.
Children in grades preK through five enjoy weekly church school. We gather as one body to explore the weekly Bible lesson and follow up with hands on activities to bring the concepts to life. Youth in grades six through eight meet in our newly renovated youth room. They explore more in-depth topics of God’s love, mission, kindness and care. Through discussions, games, movies and mission work our middle school youth learn how Jesus’s message to Love one another can be implemented in to their life.
In the United Church of Christ we believe in an “open” communion table, and at Christ Congregational Church we feel that our children should be included at an early age in this important sacrament. We offer classes of communion preparation to first grade students. The children learn about the Sacrament and bake bread for their own First Communion. This program usually takes place during Lent.
Christ Congregational Church also offers students a chance to gather for fun and fellowship. Our Junior High Youth Group and Senior High Youth Group gather monthly. They host dinners, movies, scavenger hunts and much more to strengthen the friendships amongst our youth.
Confirmation is a time of deep exploration and reflections. Youth in grades nine and ten meet regularly as a group with adult leaders and mentors to explore our faith, our denomination and our church family. They reflect on their own personal faith journey and conclude a two year program by confirming their baptismal vows and officially becoming a member of the church.
As always, we look forward to seeing returning families and welcoming new faces.
