Children, Youth and Young Adults
Children, youth, and young adults are valued members of The United Church with much to recieve and contribute to our faith communities. Young people are recipients of the church’s ministry, but they are also participants and contributors to its life, mission, and witness.
Taking young people seriously is essential to the journey toward wholeness in the church. Each person, at whatever age, will have gifts and needs within the community. The integration of children and youth into the church is an important part in the journey toward the wholeness that God intends for God’s church.
