Children & Family Ministries:
We offer activities which are fun for all ages, such as the Fall Fun Fest, Caroling at Cornwall Manor etc. Keep your eye on the bulletin or newsletter for announcement.
Vacation Bible School:
VBS is a highlight of the summer for many children in our church and community! Come join the fun as children age 3 to grade 5 experience the Bible's intriguing stories and meet biblical characters "up close and personal" through song, story, crafts, drama and more.
First Communion Class:
First Communion is an important step in the spiritual lives of many children. We offer a one-time workshop for children in second grade and older (and their parents) to explore and explain the tenets of communion. This will help prepare them to take part in confirmation when they are older.
