Children's Ministry

Our children ministry theme this year is from Isaiah 43:2,  "When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you." Our downstairs children ministry has been transformed into an ocean!  No matter the depth, no matter the darkness, no matter the scary sea creatures, no matter the pollution we encounter in our own "ocean" God promise remains true- he is with us always. We are excited to explore this metaphor weekly with the kids and spark imagination for how powerful and loyal God is in our life!

Join us for our weekly Sunday night children's program called The Vineyard. Sundays 5-7

Grades 1st-5th. A new program on Sunday nights designed to engage kids' hearts, strengthen friendships, laugh, learn and play! A safe place for children to come explore spirituality and figure it out along the way. Dinner will be provided. Contact Katie with any questions.

Youth Ministry

Our youth theme this year is from Psalm 25: 4-5.  "Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow."

Middle School and High School is all about figuring things out. Like the saying goes, all who wander are not lost! We are here to help figure spirituality out with a no strings attached philosophy! This is a safe place to question and ask why & how! All are welcome. This year we will explore the different avenues and what they mean to us personally:

  • Emmaus Ave: The Avenue of discipleship ( small groups, youth group, Confirmation)
  • Damascus Ave: The Avenue of conversion and outreach ( volunteering in leadership roles- interns, small group leader)
  • Jericho Ave: The Avenue of service and (volunteering in the community and participating on Sundays.

Join us for our weekly youth group named Rebel-ution. Thursdays 5-7 for grades 6th-12th. This is a safe place to come and be yourself. All are welcome. Rebel-ution is about figuring "it" out as we go - "it" could be faith, spirituality, purpose or anything!  We understand this is not a quick process- it takes years or more AND THAT'S OK! Come eat pizza, play games and connect with friends!
