What We Believe

Children and youth have much to contribute to the church.  Young people are recipients of the church’s ministry, but they are also participants and contributors to its life, mission, and witness.  Taking young people seriously is essential to the journey toward wholeness in the church.  Each person, at whatever age, will have gifts and needs within the community.  The integration of children and youth into the church is an important part in the journey toward the wholeness God intends for the church.
