At Homer Congregational UCC, we believe that Christian Education is not just for children. We believe that Faith Formation is a life-long spiritual journey. Read on for more information on children’s ministry, youth ministry, and adult faith formation.
At HCC, children are welcome in worship and at the Communion Table. Children younger than first grade may go to the nursery after the children’s moment during each week’s worship service.
Faith Formation Classes
9:30 – 10:15 am, September through June
In Faith Formation, we learn Bible stories, consider tough questions about our faith, and strive to live and love like Jesus in all we do. On any given Sunday, you might find us doing crafts in the classroom, practicing a performance in the sanctuary, or out in the community putting our faith in action. There’s a place for every child at Homer Congregational Church, and we currently offer classes for the following ages groups:
Pre-k – Kindergarten
Church Camp 2022, “All Things Green and Growing,” will be held August 18-20. We’ve got something for everyone this year! Click on the poster below to see program of events.
In the Homer Congregational Church youth groups, young people learn what it means to be accepted as well as to treat others with respect, compassion, and kindness, according to the teachings of Jesus. We trust that modeling the love for one another that Christ teaches can change lives and change the world. We enjoy a range of activities which include mission and service, fun and fellowship, and living what we believe. We are open to new experiences for service and mission—what, and where, calls to you?
9:15-10:15am, select Sunday mornings September through June
Confirmation classes are held for students in 9th grade and above, as preparation for adult church membership. Please contact Pastor Vicki for more information on confirmation class.
Adult Faith Formation
In Adult Faith Formation, we explore our faith in a variety of ways. So come and join us for a book discussion, a TED talk, senior fellowship, or a deep dive into the Old Testament. The coffee is on early, so stop by and be a part of some thought-provoking conversation.
