Worship Milestones

All worship milestones have suggested ages for participation, but you can reach out to Jenny Campbell if you want your young person to participate.

  • Rite 13 is a class to explore and celebrate the passage from child to teenager for anyone turning 13 or who just turned 13 (7th is grade suggested). There are three classes with the youth, one youth and parent combined class, and then presentation in worship service. October 2023
