Youth Groups and Milestones

Kindergarten – Third Grade

Kids 4 Christ and Mustard Seeds meet once a month on Sundays after worship. They begin building relationships with each other by eating and playing together as well as entering into activities designed to make the Bible come alive. Kids 4 Christ is for children Kindergarten – Second Grade and Mustard Seeds is for Third and Fourth Graders. These groups spend part of their time as a combined group and part separated to allow for age appropriate dialog.

Advent marks certain age-related milestones with something special to continue that child’s Christian journey. Milestones for this group include First Communion Class and 3rd grade bibles.

Both groups engage in service activities such as putting together food bags for homeless neighbors, collecting for the Souper Bowl of Caring and providing treats for our homeless neighbors who stay overnight during Room in the Inn.
