Groups for Children and Youth  

The following Children and Youth Groups are open to anyone interested with the purpose of service and/or reflection together.  We know youth have many opportunities and commitments in their young lives, and we have our soulful niche of being a group that serves and reflects as Jesus teaches us.  We also hope that there is fun and creativity mixed in with the ways we serve and reflect together.

*If you would like to add an additional event to this list, Linda Welty is able to send out group emails throughout the year.
