Family Ministry & Youth

Calling all Youth and Children!

It’s Fall/Winter at Beatitudes! We are excited to invite all children and youth to “Grow with Us!” Each Sunday provides you an opportunity to connect and grow your relationships with the Beatitudes community of families. Whether your child is budding, blossoming or burgeoning, our enrichment classes are tailored to each child right where there are! We welcome you to come see where you’ll grow! 

PLEASE NOTE: Church of the Beatitudes dedicates the first Sunday of each month to the Communion Service of Worship, and we encourage our families to worship together during Communion Sundays.


YOUTH GRADES 7TH-HIGH SCHOOL: We invite you to drop in to our Youth Group each Sunday from 10:15 am to 10:40 am in Room 10 in NW corner of the Church Office building. This will be a time of munchin’ on snacks, and reconnecting and sharing our week with one another. The Youth will then join their families at 10:45 am in worship.
CHILDREN GRADES 1ST-6TH: Come join the FUN in Children’s Enrichment! You will begin worship with your family in the Worship Center and at 10:45 am, Deni Nordmeyer, Family Ministry Coordinator, will escort the children to Room 2 for FUN activities! Parents will pick up their child(ren) immediately following the service at 11:30 am in Room 2.

CHILDREN AGES PRE-K-KINDERGARTEN: Young ones ages 3-5 are invited to come join the FUN with Deborah Humble in Room 1 for Enrichment! The young ones will begin worship with their families in the Worship Center and at 10:45 am, Deborah Humble will escort the children to Room 1 for FUN activities!

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:
