Family Ministry & Youth

Family Ministry Events - Fall 2021


Sunday, Oct 31 | Church Parking Lot

Old traditions renewed! Our Halloween Trunk or Treat and Costume Parade made a BIG come back this year as families gathered in our church parking lot to pass out CANDY CANDY CANDY from decorated cars (and Pastor Tony’s motorcycle) to our small goblins and ghouls! Who could resist all that CANDY and Kris Nyman’s homemade pumpkin pie to the first prize winner?!


Sunday, Oct 17 | 11:30 am | Outdoor Plaza

Our kite contruction crew!
Let's go fly a kite!
RUN like the wind!
Who's driving this bus anyway?!

As predictable as Arizona weather can be most of the year, Mother Nature held back on us last Sunday for our Family Ministry Kite flying event. Despite the windless skies, our families had a FANTASTIC time drawing their dreams on kites and urging them upward with sheer manpower. A special thanks to Lee Case for his kite framing services as well as our other volunteers.   

Children/Youth Enrichment Program

Family ministry is a safe place for families to spiritually journey through life together as the wonderful humans we were born to be, sharing in a divine relationship with each other and the community as we walk through the stages of life while making God’s love real.
During our gatherings, we will have a variety of experiences guided by sacred writings to develop the natural gifts of the person in caring for our diverse humanity and our Earth home.
PARENTS: Children’s and Youth Enrichment classes will meet IN-PERSON (masked and socially distanced) during worship services on a staggered schedule in Britt Chapel, and on Zoom. Contact our Family Ministry Coordinator, Deni Nordmeyer, for the Zoom links at:
