Children & Youth Ministry
Word on Wednesday (WOW)
WOW is our Christian education hour for children ages preschool through 6th grade. WOW meets from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on Wednesdays during the months of September through May. The children begin the night with opening exercises: music, offering, and announcements, and then spend time in the classroom with their teachers. Many lessons are taught, games played, craft projects assembled, and snacks eaten in class throughout the year.
Confirmation is a three year program for 7th through 9th graders and meets on Wednesdays from September through May. During the first two years, the students study the Bible. The last year, the Confirmands study the Presbyterian Church: the church year, sacraments, stewardship, reformed theology, and much more.
Teens and God (TAG)
TAG is for 9th through 12th graders. They meet from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on Wednesdays during the months of September through May in the River of Hope Youth Center. Their time together begins with a meal. Then they study the Bible and conclude the time with prayer.
On the 2nd Sunday morning of the month (September through May) immediately following the children´s sermon, the 3 year olds to 2nd grade children are dismissed from worship to attend Children´s Church. This is a time where they can worship at their age level. Songs, lesson time, offering, and prayer are included in their time in Children´s Church.
