Christian Education Mission Statement
If we have organization and apply our imagination, we will build a Christian Ed foundation.
Nursery is provided each week during worship for infants and younger children.
Christian Education News
Pastor Julie has planned three Bible in the Backyard. The first in June at Warren Glenn; July at the Church camp out, and August TBD. Watch your Newsletter for more information.
We in Christian Ed are already thinking ahead to Fall and planning a new classroom and looking for exciting people to teach and help one Sunday a month starting in September.
Youth Group is offered for both Middle School and High School students. The group meets the First and Third Sundays of the month, in addition to fellowship and service activities throughout the year.
Meetings are from 5:00-7:00pm on the First and Third Sundays of the month during the School year.
Youth Groups focus on developing friendships and forming faith in our young people. Leaders encourage honest discussions and offer a safe space to talk about school, family, and faith. Annual retreats, youth-led worship services, and mission projects also foster lasting bonds among the group members.
Youth Group Activities

The Youth Group went to a new and fun site with Drayton Avenue’s Youth Group called the Breakout Room! Everyone had a wonderful time - even the adults!
Gleaners Food Bank
Six Youth Group members went to Gleaners Food Bank in Detroit with Drayton Avenue in January to volunteer.
Here's what Gleaners had to say:
Thank you for volunteering with the Gleaners Community Food Bank Kids Helping Kids program! We are extremely grateful for the hard work provided by your group.
During your visit, your group managed 4,000 pounds of food which equates to 3,320 meals! Your support makes it possible for us to reach our goal of distributing more than 40 million pounds of food to our hungry neighbors in Southeastern Michigan every year.
I’d love to hear any thoughts you have to share about your experience with Gleaners, or if you’d like to get more involved with Gleaners.
We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date with upcoming volunteer opportunities and what’s going on with Gleaners in the community.
It was so good to see all of you – and to be the one telling Donna what to do for once! ;)
I will see you soon I am sure!
