Education and faith formation do not have to be dull. On Sunday mornings our children attend Funday School and learn about faith and community through crafts, games, stories and service projects. We look forward to new events as well with the addition of a Children’s Ministry Coordinator.
At noon on most Sundays our Middle and High School Youth share a meal together. After lunch, the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders explore a variety of topics based on questions kids actually ask, like: “does God still create stuff today?” and rotate through a series of mentored internships to learn about how the church actually works, and all middle school youth have the opportunity to attend Campfirmation, a week-long camp in the high country with over a dozen other congregations.
The High School youth also gather after lunch to participate in everything from topical studies, service projects, and of course, fun stuff. Each summer, Esperanza’s youth team up with three other congregations for Beach Camp in Southern California.
Adults have a variety of learning opportunities including Thursday morning studies ranging from book studies, video based discussion groups to more traditional bible study.
