St. John’s Christian Early Learning Center and St. John’s UCC, Fullerton are pairing up to engage kids this summer with three “Camp” Events!
Help support our summer program for kids.
Registration is $90 per child for each camp.
Whenever people talk about children and youth, they inevitably say something like “the children are the future of the church!”
While meaning well, and understanding that people are trying to express support and value for our young people, they miss the truth. Children and youth are the church today! Who we help them become; how they experience God’s love and grace; what they think about compassion and hope, justice and faith is critical now! The children are the church of now. What we do to show them the way of faith now will forever determine what the church becomes.
This Sunday, March 27, following the morning worship service, our children will be invited to a time of singing, fun, and crafts. While they share with each other, parents and other adults will remain in the sanctuary to talk about possible next steps for our Education Ministry. The Sunday School Task Force asks for your involvement in our Children and Youth Ministries which we want to see flourish and remain foundational at St John’s UCC, Fullerton. What we do in the coming months will be essential to renewing and recreating experiences in the faith formation of our children and youth and all who lead them. Be part of shaping the next steps of growth as we show our love and commitment to our kids, “No Matter What!”
Yours in grace and hope,
Steve and the Sunday School Task Force
