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." We encourage little ones to take these lessons and apply them to their daily life to 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, youth are to sit in church for the whole service and help with ushering and greeting. After the service, youth meet in the Sunday School room to discuss future activities for the coming weeks/months. Youth are encouraged to bring friends to church and to youth events!


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!


We're looking into the following programs:

*If you'd like to be a part of these programs, please let Pastors 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.


*After-School Program to provide homework help, fun activities, devotions and a safe place for youth to have fun and grow. We are hoping to this at least once a week. If you would like to donate your time and talents, please let Reverends Pam & Keith know.


*Vacation Bible School (VBS) is in the works for this year and will provide a wonderful opportunity for youth and adults alike to work together to make God's world a better place.

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.
