Journey to Discipleship

Journey to Discipleship is our weekly faith formation opportunity for children who are 3  years old (by Sept.1) through 5th grade. The program is designed as a workshop rotation model, helping the children engage mind, body, and heart as they learn the stories of faith through cooking, games, art, science, story, drama, and music while accompanied by trained caring volunteers.

Sundays  -  9:40am-10:20am
Wednesdays  -  6:00pm-7:00pm

Summer can be a time of fun and learning in a new way. Each summer we offer a week of programming designed to be intergenerational, fun, active, and faith-centered.
