Beulah is committed to nurturing children and youth in their love for Christ and service to God’s world. We offer Prayground for young children during worship, Confirmation classes, youth groups, and summer experiences are part of this faith development.
Prayground is an area in the sanctuary that is designed for young children to use during worship. The children sit at a table near the front of the worship space so they can see what is happening in worship. Nursery workers or parents sit with the children and assist them with activities using educational and creative materials that are linked to the focus of the worship service.
The church nursery is now open on Sunday mornings during worship for infants through preschool age.
Youth Group is offered for Middle School and High School youth throughout the year. They will engage in Bible study and group building activities which provide youth the opportunity to grow, learn, and engage in their community in a positive way. Members of the Youth Groups have opportunities to attend various church conferences and mission trips both locally and nationwide.
When youth have matured in faith and are ready to become full members of the church, they dig deeper into their own beliefs and Christian understanding through Confirmation Classes. These classes study major areas of our faith, such as worship, sacraments, polity, and mission. Youth are usually paired with an adult mentor who helps them explore their faith. At the conclusion of the classes, youth who were baptized previously profess their own faith and confirm the promises their parents/guardians made on their behalf at baptism. Youth who have not yet been baptized profess their faith and receive the sacrament of baptism. This is a celebratory moment in a young person’s life and the doorway to a richer experience of Christian faith.
