Elementary Learning Groups (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)
Young and elementary-aged families are currently meeting on the outdoors playground for fun and fellowship following the 8:30 AM combined English service on Sundays.
When a child is ready to come forward to the Lord’s table, hold out his/her hand, say “Amen” and receive Holy Communion in a reverent way (no silliness or goofiness that is disrespectful of others at the table), then they and their parents are ready to come to a First Communion Workshop. We will offer these on Saturday mornings, two to three times per year. Pastor Kerry and Pastor Tan will teach parents, age appropriate instruction will be provided for the children, and they will begin receiving Holy Communion the next time they are in worship.
Milestone Ministries is a way for us to celebrate the promises made in baptism, provide learning opportunities for families, and recommit ourselves as a congregation to nurture one another as the body of Christ as we mark “milestones” in a person’s journey of faith. The first milestone is baptism. Throughout a child’s growing years, we recognize and celebrate new milestones through parent/child classes, small gifts, and observances during worship services. Some of the milestones we recognize include Las Presentaciones (three year old blessing), first communion, Journey Through the Bible (3rd grade), Creating a Family Technology Plan (middle school), and high school graduation.
