Faith Formation at First: Nurturing and growing in faith is a vital part of life in our parish. You are invited to connect and grow!
Sunday School engages our younger youth in bible stories and how these relate to our lives. Two tracks based on age help our children to grow at their own pace—Doryn Glenn and Sandra Tetley lead these groups.
Middle School and High School youth collaborate in scripture and theology with Pastor Rhoades and Julie Agee for Confirmation and Youth Faith Formation.
Adults explore faith formation with Corinne Rhoades leading Cup of Joe and Jesus in the Parish Hall – designed for parents and more youthful adults, this group will explore real life and faith connections.
John Stewart leads other adults deeper into faith through the Adult Sunday School Class which uses book studies to ask the deeper questions.
So, for every age there is an option! And, later this Fall we will come together for Faith Formation Sundays in which all ages together will gather around God’s Word and grow together in faith.
How To Help Your Child to Know God
Sunday School for all ages is offered during the school year. It begins at 8:45 a.m. each Sunday morning. A one-year confirmation program is offered for seventh grade youth. Our Galveston christian schools emphasize spiritual growth and fellowship in Christ.
