Our approach to coming generations is shaped by the perspective of Robert Coles, professor of Psychiatry at Harvard, who maintains that children have profound spiritual concerns and benefit from a spiritual framework. (see The Spiritual Life of Children by Robert Coles.) The church is a place for parents and children to build that framework drawing on the resources of Christian faith.
Donnell Wyche, Associate Pastor, provides pastoral supervision of children and youth ministries, working closely with Diane Sonda, our Children's Ministry Director and Nigel Berry, our Youth Ministry Director. All who work with minors in Children and Youth Ministries are screened and trained as part of our extensive abuse prevention program.
We have a wide range of age specific programs for children designed with the understanding that children need a spiritual framework for their lives too. Young people learn to experience God at their level, become equipped to pray, and learn to trust in God for themselves. All of our staff and volunteers working with minors go through a screening process, and are supervised to insure a safe and quality environment for them. To keep everyone up to date on what is going on our quarterly Youth Ministry Newsletter can be found here. To subscribe to the newsletter please email Jamie Bott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our church is also the home of the Vineyard Children's Center, providing licensed care for kids 6 weeks through 5 years of age.
