Children are an important part of our church life at First Congregational United Church of Christ. From Confirmation to Faith in Motion to Young Children’s Church, we’re proud to offer a variety of programs for youth in our church and in the wider community.
Confirmation is an opportunity for our eighth graders to explore their Christian faith, discern their place in the church, and, if they choose, reaffirm the promises that were made at their baptisms. Confirmation includes classroom sessions, conversations with mentors, participation in worship, and involvement in church activities.
Faith in Motion is a youth program that combines learning about faith and compassion with plenty of physical activity! Each week, participants spend about a half hour learning about a Christian value and how to put it into action in their lives, and about a half an hour playing a game.
Young Children’s Church is a time for our younger friends to learn about God with their peers and our helpful volunteers. Pre-K kids through second graders are invited to leave church services after the children’s sermon and participate in learning and activities that is appropriate for their age. Depending on the Sunday, they return either for communion or at the end of the worship service.
