CHRISTIAN EDUCATION


     YOUTH PROGRAM

Our youth program is active in many ways. Youth can participate in choir, worship, Sunday School, plays, and so much more!

 

During worship, there is a special message just for children, of all ages, called "Time With The Young At Heart." It is usally connected with the scripture, mission projects or events that are occuring in the world. Hopefully what they learn can be applied to their daily life so that they will become enriched young adults.

 

Educational time is provided after the message and these lessons correlate with what is being taught in church. Our goal for our youth is to relate Bible stories to their life and perform what God is calling them to do.

 

Sit Together In Church (STIC) Sunday:  On the first Sunday of each month, the youth greet and usher.  After Time With the Young at Heart, preschoolers go to class.  The younger youth (1st - 5th) go to class for a short lesson, do a craft and come back to worship to help serve the Offering.  The older youth (6th - 12th) stay in church for the entire service.

 

Youth Events:  Retreats/outings, get-togethers, lock-ins, movie nights, Saline Scarecrow Contest, Saline Christmas Parade, CROP Walk, Christmas Caroling, Halloween & Christmas Parties, and so much more!

 

Youth are encouraged to bring friends to church and to youth events!

 

We're looking into the following programs:

*If you'd like to be a part of these programs, please let Reverends Pam & Keith know you're interested! Thank you for your time and support of the youth*

 

*Cooking Class to teach future college students/adults to cook simple, inexpensive (and delicious!) meals. We are hoping to do this once or twice a month. If you'd like to submit a recipe or teach the youth in person how to cook your meal idea, please let the Pastors know.

LEARNING PROGRAMS

Educational Hour

Every Sunday, the young people are invited to join the ministers up front for "Time with the Young at Heart".  The message ties in with the lectionary of the day. Sometimes there is a skit or action song and other times a story is told using multimedia. The first Sunday of each month, older youth stay in worship, and younger children attend Sunday School. On other Sundays during the school year, all youth attend Christian Education downstairs in the youth room.  Parents are to pick up childern after worship.
