What We Do
Classes For Children
Children’s classes are provided during the 9:30 a.m. service. The goal of these classes is to help children connect their lives to God through Jesus Christ and grow in Christian faith in a safe and nurturing environment by:
Developing their spiritual habits such as prayer, service to others, and regular attendance at Sunday School and worship
Teaching them scripture, Bible stories, music and the rituals of faith
Providing them with mission opportunities so that they may become faithful disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Children start out in worship with their parents and then go to their classrooms following the Children’s Message. There is Nursery available from the beginning of the service for our littlest folks.
Youth In Grades 6-12
Youth gather on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m., in the Youth Lounge for their own class. These classes provide a safe place for young people to think, question and discuss questions of faith as they grow
Adult Challenge Class
On Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m., in the parlor, adults meet for study of various topics—social issues, Bible study, comparative religions, etc. There is usually lively discussion. All are welcome at any time.
Vacation Bible School
Each year, usually in June, we offer a week-long bible school children from the church and the Ypsilanti area.
Children who are 8 years old and older are invited to serve as acolytes—candle lighters at the beginning and end of every service. This opportunity is also open to youth and even adults.
One Sunday, during Lent, the Children’s Ministry team presents a Lenten Fair following the 9:30 a.m. worship service. There are Lenten and Easter themed activities for all age including egg dyeing, pretzel dipping, face painting and many others. Lunch is available.
Young people in grades 6-12 meet together for the purpose of building strong friendships, serving the church and the community, growing as Christian disciples and to have fun.
They often plan and participate in week long mission trips. They have worked in the U.P., downtown Detroit and Appalachia.
They help with the Lenten Fair and Vacation Bible School and they also serve a Souper Bowl Chili sale to benefit missions.
Neighborhood Lenten bible Studies
During Lent, Bible studies are held in the homes of church members. These events provide an opportunity for spiritual growth and fellowship as we prepare ourselves for the celebration of Easter.
