Children's and Youth Ministry

Youth Logo1

By God's grace we have a growing number of families with young children and students and a top priority for us in 2012-2013 is the development of an excellent and Christ-centered ministry to our children and youth.

All parents (and anyone else interested in this aspect of our church's ministry) are invited to attend an informal meeting with Fr. Patterson (during the Sunday School hour) on Sunday, February 19th.

I want to hear your thoughts and input as we move forward with the growth of this vital aspect of ministry.

I also heartily encourage students in 6th-12th grade to consider attending Winter Camp (March 2-4th). For more information, please click here.

Thoughts or comments? Please do not hesitate to contact me!
