Children’s Ministry & Faith Formation

What is Faith Formation?

Faith Formation is a lifelong journey. It is an engaged process of learning that creates a strong foundation.

…a foundation on which to learn about God, Christian tradition,
and that which is sacred through experiences of spiritual development.

…a foundation which is integrated and woven throughout all aspects
of congregational, daily and family life.

…a foundation which will provide landmarks and guide the way on life’s journey.

FAITH FORMATION (CHURCH SCHOOL)

Faith Formation School meets weekly, except for the first first Sunday of the month which is a multigenerational service. (Please check the website “This Sunday” section under the “Worship” tab for any changes to the above schedule). Our curriculum is designed by Marta Fioriti, Minister of Faith Formation and Ministries for Children, Youth and Families and volunteers using the model of ritual, story and creative experience based on the weekly scripture used in worship.  Children ages preschool through grade 4 begin in the Sanctuary and, following the Children’s Message, move to a gathering time in the West Wing.   We learn scripture, hear stories and then deepen our learning as we divide into smaller groups.  Children ages preschool through grade 4 stay together for the creative experience while 5th – 8th grades separate to their own class.

BIBLE WORKSHOP

Each year, our family at BCC will give a Spark Bible (NRSV) to our 3rd graders. These bibles are easy to read and are a great resource for kids and parents!  We also will present the children with a tool-kit and encourage the children to attend the Bible workshop for 3 weeks following the presentation.
