Children’s Ministry Mission Statement

Acknowledging our call to ministry with children, we work:

  • To nurture children in the faith,
  • To strengthen their ties with the household of God,
  • To share the heritage of the Christian faith and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A),
  • To involve and support parents in the Christian education of their children,
  • To be living examples of the Christian faith.

Understanding that children, too, are called to ministry, we work to provide opportunities for children:

  • To develop community with one another,
  • To use their talents for ministry to the congregation,
  • To be involved in service and mission to the global community,
  • To share and be joyful about their learnings and their faith.

Milestones In Children’s Ministry

Just as stones were used in ancient times by the side of a road showing the distance in miles to a given place, we are using milestones to mark a child’s learning and growing in the Christian faith.
