Tippe Kids and Teens
A Caring Place to Grow!
Children, tweens, and teens are important to us!
Our children are a welcome and integral part of our worship on Sunday mornings. Our Children's Ministry offers children the opportunity for their own fellowship times as well as significant participation in the full life of the church through worship leadership, outreach opportunities, Peace Camp and intergenerational events (such as the All Church Picnic, Christmas Caroling, Sharing the Light of Christmas, and our Easter Egg Hunt).
Family Ministries make available to young and mature families alike activities that grow relationship and provide faith-filled fun.
We use Progressive Christianity's Joyful Path and Godly Play as a curriculum and guide for our education with our children and teens.
Join us September 2018 - May 2019 as Heatherlee guides our Children, Youth, and Family Ministry.
2nd and 4th Sundays: Wisdom Circle for Children and Youth. After Kids' Time in Worship, children and youth will gather with Heatherlee to reflect on the Wisdom Teachings of Jesus. Building on the strengths of an intergenerational approach, we will support needs of our children and youth with break out groups. Our Nursery will continue to care for our littlest ones. Other Sundays we so want our children to be with us for all of worship as they build relationships, offer leadership, reflect and pray with us!
Youth Circle: For our youth 5th-8th grade, beginning in October, 1st Monday nights of each month at 6:30pm. where the focus is life issue oriented using Bible wisdom to support our youth. (Parents are able to join Sanctuary Time of Belonging as you meet.) Friends of our youth welcome! Please enter through front doors and downstairs to meet!
Family Fellowship: Every other month, begins in October Sunday the 7th 5pm with a Bon Fire, Hot dog Roast, S'Mores and shared storytelling. Can't wait! Bring a side dish please. We will post these as the year unfolds. Several whole church intergenerational gatherings are offered each year as well...like Christmas Caroling!

Children Learn What They Live
If children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.
If children live with fear,
They learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with ridicule,
They learn to be shy.
If children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.
If children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.
If children live with encouragement,
They learn confidence.
If children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.
If children live with approval,
They learn to like themselves.
If children live with acceptance,
They learn to find love in the world.
