Christian Education/Youth and Childrens Ministry
During the Winter of 2009 a wonderful memorial gift was received in honor of Bud Thommsen, a member of our church for many years. Bud Loved children and valued Christian Education. This wonderful donation was blended with over $6,000 in direct donations from our congregation and we now are pleased to offer a brand new, God blessed, Godly Play room. Godly Play is a wonderful way to share our faith with our children, youth and adults. Using common language and Montessori methods we learn the stories and lessons of the bible using all the senses. We welcome all. Godly play starts right after the children's moment early during our 10:00 service.
High School Youth Group
We have an active High School Youth group that can vary a great deal in size and participation. We currently meet every Sunday (not including the first Sunday of every month) in our meeting room at the church. We usually meet from 6 to 7:30. Ending times vary but start time are consistent. We have an assortment of dedicated youth leaders lead by DCE David Heater. Recently we have been blessed with the addition of a Y A V veteran, Luke Rembold, who brings with him a life time of Presbyterian experience as an additional adult mentor for our youth group. We provide a welcoming environment, open to all, and every attempt is made to show by lesson and example the benefits of having a relationship with God and the church. We put an emphasis on the foundation of our faith and the reality of Creator, Savior and Sustainer. We would love to have you participate and any questions can be directed to Dave at 541-961-3499.
Currently adult education opportunities exist through our Book study which meets every Monday at Noon. During which we use both fiction and non-fiction novels, poetry, and other forms of media to study God's word and understand better Gods plan for us. This study is lead by Pastor Don Taylor.
We also have our Brown Bag Bible study group which meets each Wednesday also at noon. Using the lectionary readings and discussion, lead by Dr. Don Taylor, we study the upcoming Sundays scripture, often over lunch, to help us to be better prepared some Sunday worship.
