Other Activities


Vacation Bible School is the year’s highlight for family ministry. For one week each June the church becomes a place of adventure and discovery for a week.

Children ages 4 through fifth grade journey to foreign lands during a week that includes crafts, games, and music. GoodSam VBS is a true intergenerational event featuring youth, adult leaders, and our youth leaders-in-training. Friends and neighbors are welcome to journey with us.

Other family-oriented events include interactive, child-centered services on special days in the church calendar, movie nights, game nights, and parent-night-out events.

Parenting programs are offered through out the year and feature a shared meal, learning and discussion for the parents, and creative activities for the children.

Communion Class invites all children who would like to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion to participate in a preparation Class. Held for one weekday evening over 3 consecutive weeks, this class guides children toward a deeper understanding of the church community to which they belong. They are taught why we partake in this tradition, how our worship is organized, and what it means to receive the Body and Blood.
