When we say Kids Come First, this means every decision we make asks the question, "How does this impact the faith lives of children and their families?" This is true in programs, in budgets, in staffing, in worship. It is also why half our congregation is under the age of 25.
This program focuses on three areas for youth:
Discipleship - becoming follower of Jesus within the All Peoples Community. Job Training - instilling a hard work ethic combined with basic financial understanding Leadership - high school students supervise younger children
Our work ministry continues on Saturdays during the school year. We will teach children ages 8-16 about a strong work ethic, Christian values, and money management. Youth ages 10 and up are given a gift of $15 each work day (8 and 9 year olds get $10 each day). Workers must attend worship the Sunday before. The program is designed for youth that do not have a church home and want to learn about Jesus at All Peoples. Come to worship to see the work schedule.
Build Learn And Serve Together
BLAST is our high school youth group. Our High School youth group meets every Wednesday night from 7-8:30pm.
Lil' Sprouts is a fun morning of singing, crafts, playing in the garden and learning Bible stories. Our children spend time with volunteers and parents are encouraged to participate. Look for the Lil' Sprouts schedule in worship.
Confirmation is part of a Rites of Passage program that includes faith building for youth (typically middle school or high school students). All middle school and any high school students that chooses can attend the confirmation class. Sign up for confirmation with Pastor Aida.
