Our faith formation ministries are dedicated to providing rich formational opportunities for children in an exciting, innovative and caring environment. We meet in grade specific groups and focus on relational ministry, scripture study and having fun! Throughout the year we also incorporate large-group experiences for grades 1-5 to be together, including service projects, holiday celebrations and more.
Registration is required for Wednesday night faith formation programs. To register mid-year please contact Nicole Smalley

Sunday Mornings | 10:30am | All Year
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is worship time for children ages 6-12. During the 10:30am Mass, children are dismissed from the congregation, just before the Liturgy of the Word, to hear the same readings as the adult congregation, but in simpler language. The children return to the main assembly in time for the offertory. A Minister of the Word (MW) asks prepared questions regarding the reading and the Gospel to facilitate the children’s absorption of God’s words. Every Sunday, Children’s Liturgy volunteers are able to witness the powerful connection between children and God. Registration is not required for children’s participation in this ministry.
Be a part of forming the spiritual lives of the children at this church. There are many ways to get involved. You can sign up to volunteer in our Resource room on Wednesday nights to work on projects behind the scenes or help with special events. You can also be a Wednesday night teacher! Teachers use curriculum and prepared lesson plans to lead the classrooms. Teachers will lead discussions, play games, ask questions, instruct projects, all in an effort to bring faith alive for these kids.
