“Christian education is at the very heart of the church. In the educational process the Spirit of God encounters people of all ages so that they are nurtured in faith, grow in knowledge and experience, and are inspried and empowered to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.”

“Our Christian Education Committee promotes the Summer Camps and/or Conferences for our youth, Rally Day activities, Vacation Bible School, Sunday School curriculum, and Children’s Church curriculum. Christian Education also supports outreach projects that our Sunday School participates in, including donations to Hoffman Homes, Homewood at Plum Creek, the sponsorship of a family a Christmas, and our sponsored child who we support through the Child Sponsorship Program of the UCC’s Wider Church Ministries.”
