Youngest Friends Club
Babies through pre-K
This group of children and parents meet quarterly for fellowship through simple age-appropriate activities. Past activities have included picnicking at the park, riding big-wheels, creating crafts, and cookie painting. Our goal is for our parents (and kids) to develop relationships with peers and faith mentors that will continue as your child grows.
Grades K through 5
This group for elementary youth meets one Sunday a month for fellowship through field trip outings. Past field trips have included swimming at Indy Island, bowling, roller skating, and an apple orchard. Our goal is for our kids to develop relationships with peers and faith mentors that will continue through the middle and high school years. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join us on Kids Club outings – to deepen their family relationship and get to know other children and families in their child’s age group.
Every year during Lent – traditionally a season of spiritual formation and renewal — Resurrection prepares children for their partaking of Holy Communion. Families gather for a series of classes with a Pastor that explores the meaning of the Sacraments and their role in our faith journeys. At the end of the classes, participants celebrate with their First Communion on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week.
Communion instruction is typically offered to students in the 4th grade. However, families are free to discern whether their children may begin communing at an earlier age. Parents may wish to include one of the pastors in this discernment process, and we encourage parents to let us know if a child will commune earlier than 4th grade so we can support the family’s faith decisions appropriately. Children older than 4th grade who have not received instruction for communion are welcome to attend the class, and, occasionally, younger students attend as well.
