Youth and Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry

UCC offers Sunday School for pre-K, K-3rd, and 4th-5th graders every Sunday morning at 10:00 am. Children join adults in the sanctuary for the offering, a "children's time", closing hymn and benediction. Our creative, inclusive Sunday School curriculum includes prayers stations, scripture study, object lessons, service projects, care cards, crafts, and music. Each year the Sunday School presents a Christmas pageant as well as a spring musical. We also offer inter-generational worship services several time per year. Families of all descriptions are welcome here!

Youth Ministry

Our Youth want someone to listen to them and to walk with them as they journey to find their strong voices of faith. Faith is complicated, and we don’t pretend to have all the answers. We hope teens encounter UCC to be a place of acceptance of new ideas, certainty, and doubt.
