BeLOVED is an after school youth program that is based upon the Christian value of showing others that they are beLOVED and ultimately experiencing love themselves. Students are K-4.

Milestones:

All of our Sunday School grades (pre-k through 5th) participate in different Milestone classes during their faith journey. These special classes are attended with their parent or a faith mentor and help to continue their journey by teaching about faith practices. Included in these Milestones are first communion, which is offered for third graders. First Communion is recognized on Maundy Thursday of each year.

Children’s Bell Choir:

Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to participate in this fun and education musical opportunity that practices one Wednesday a month and performs the following Sunday from Fall through Spring. These young people only need to know colors and how to count and they can play children’s bells. All are welcome!
