“Eastminster provides ways for me to give back to our community-through providing meals for the folks who go to Advent House; through helping to make its beautiful grounds welcoming for all of God’s creatures; through praying with others for guidance in advocating for social justice. Hearing God’s word at Eastminster and trying to follow it gives me hope for the future.”
Youth and Children
At Eastminster, we believe that ongoing faith formation is crucial for all ages. Sunday mornings include creative and engaging opportunities for all ages to learn and grow into following the ways of Jesus Christ.
Age 4 thru 1st Grade: Holy Moly is an innovative, interactive curriculum for children to ignite a biblical imagination that lasts a lifetime.
Grades 2-4: Whirl is a curriculum that follows the Revised Common Lectionary. This will give parents and kids a great starting off point for those Sunday lunch and car ride discussions after church!
Grades 5-7: Re:form empowers youth to ask questions they actually wonder about the Bible, creed, disciples, Jesus, and other beliefs and hot topics.
Children in Worship
Our Children’s worship time, for ages 4-2nd grade, brings stories of Scripture right in front of them, in a way they can see and experience. Through the use of interactive storytelling they learn to wonder about the stories and live into the mystery of God in their own way. The children are then released after the Children’s message in regular worship to participate in their own worship in Fellowship Hall.
