Youth and Young Families Ministry

  • Family-Friendly Worship Time (intergenerational)
    Children start off the morning sitting in the pews with their families from 10:30–10:45 am. This segment of the worship service includes music and language suitable for the whole family. This culmnates in the "Children's Time" when children of all ages move the front and enjoy a special time with the presiding minister. They then leave the sanctuary and head downstairs in the church for their classes. They are collected from their classrooms by their families at the end of the service. On Communion Sundays, they are returned to the Sanctuary by their teachers at Communion time to participate in the sacrament with their parents.
  • Annual Youth Service (intergenerational)
    An innovative, inspiring, and thought-provoking worship service led by our youth. This is a once-a-year event but not always at the same time of year.
  • Christmas Pageant, (intergenerational)
    A seasonal, joyous celebration of Christmas presented by the children and youth of the church programs. It usually occurs during Worship Service time on Advent III Sunday.
  • Big Circle (ages three through grade 12)
    An open session for all children and youth to meet before meeting with their peer groups for an activity.
    May include music, drama, games, dance, puppets and prayer.

    Christian development for children achieved through weekly times to gather, engage, respond, bless and reflect. .
  • Spirit Games (Church School with help from Youth)
    Non-competitive, Spirit-based outdoor games on the last three Sundays during the month of June.
    During June we also celebrate with the whole congregation, Spirit Camp Weekend, an opportunity for FSA young families to spend the night at Camp Kee-Mo-Kee on Saturday and then worship with the whole congegatio which come out on Sunday morning. After service we traditionally hold a congregational picnic.
  • Youth Group (grades 9 through 12)
    A parent-free Sunday youth group for teenagers in high school.
    In a safe, welcoming space; come as you are.
    Big screen for movies, Wii room, ping-pong room, and camping.
  • Sing For Your Supper (multigenerational)
    This is a community meal before the children’s choirs on Wednesday nights during the school year. All are welcome to join us for lots of fun and food before singing. The main course is provided and families rotate bringing dessert and drinks. We start at 5:30pm and finish at 6:10pm. You are welcome even if you are not going to sing afterwards.
  • Confirmands are guided through a variety of experiences to strengthen their understanding of their faith and connect them with their church community. Our topically-oriented curriculum is called Making Disciples.
    The program is mentorship-based and involves family commitment.

The second Sunday in September each year is set aside for welcoming families to FSA (but please feel free to join our programs at any time). At this time, we gather current information about the families we serve. Please note: All families with participants in the Nursery, Church School and Youth Group are asked to register. Registration forms include parent/guardian consent to program participation, having pictures taken, etc.
