Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes countercultural life in a secular world.

We want our children to know from day one that they are known and loved, that they matter, and that they are called to join with God’s people in building a more beloved community — a world where justice, kindness, and compassion prevails and all are accepted for who they are.
We also believe that children have a natural sense of spirituality and wonder and that faith is caught more than taught. To that end, we offer programming each week aimed towards immersing our kids in the stories, teachings, and love of Jesus so that they might be given language to articulate and build the faith that is within them. We accomplish this through engaging our children in sight and sound, learning and play.
We gather regularly on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights and host special children’s ministry events throughout the year. Discover more opportunities by following the links in the right column.
Ultimately, we strive to form children who grow up to know and love Christ, leading lives of gratitude, praise, compassion, and service in his name.

Youth Ministries is a bridging ministry of education, connection, formation, and hopefully, transformation.
Responding to the spiritual needs of teens is about building trusting relationships. The Episcopal Church strives to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world. The Youth Ministries Office is grounded in the Five Marks of Mission and the Baptismal Covenant, building churchwide networks to invite, inspire, affirm, and equip youth for discipleship and Christian leadership in their lives and their communities.
