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.

Children/Youth Rite of Passage

Calling Youth and Children! We missed celebrating our youth and children’s growth during COVID. The last Rite of Passage celebration was in 2019. All youth and children that entered grades K, 4th, 7th, and high school or graduated from high school or college in the years 2020, 2021, or this year 2022, were honored on Sunday, May 22, during our service of worship. These are important transitions that we wanted to recognize. To watch the Rite of Passage ceremony, please head to our “Latest Media” page and click on the worship service video dated 05/22.
