FAITH FORMATION: CHILDREN, YOUTH & FAMILIES
Our community experiences many generations of one kinship participating. We have families with one mom, two dads, a mom & dad, or no kids at all. We also experience familial relationships with those who do not share genetics. We value this diversity and place an emphasis on collaborating with one another.
At Elim we celebrate that children already know and experience God. To encourage the faith journey of younger people, we try to create age-appropriate space and opportunities as well as cross-generational relationships. Whole-child formation is possible by taking advantage of a variety of opportunities, and all children are welcome to participate at their own pace. Check out our calendar and sign up for our e-newsletter to keep up with our current events. Please also see Little Shepherd for our preschool schedule and curriculum.
Kid's Faith Groups (formerly Sunday School)
Our Kid's Faith Groups meet during the school year from September to May. Kids, ages 3 through 6th grade, are invited to join in on the learning, community, and fun on Sunday’s at 10:05 in the upstairs classrooms. Kids will be in two groups, ages 3—2nd grade in one group and kids 3rd—6th grade in another. On the first Sunday of each month there will be a combined family activity. On the remaining Sundays the groups will meet separately for a time of community building, learning and fun.
Elim will be offering a Confirmation program for 6th and 7th graders this coming year. We will explore our faith more fully two Sunday mornings per month and participate in fun social events each month to get to know each other better. Interested? Email or call the church office at 707-762-4081 for more info.
