Children, Youth, & Their Families
All ages of children participate in worship, both with adults, and with each other during their classes. At the end of the morning, children of all levels gather to sing. Parents pick up all children at 12:30.
Youth in Junior and Senior High also gather for Sunday School. They each meet in their own space with a teacher who engages the youth in discussion and activities on a range of topics from Bible study to healthy sexuality to Exploring (Ana)Baptism to social issues and current events.
Youth also meet periodically outside Sunday morning for fellowship and education. Some favorite activities in the past have included game or movie nights, Whirlyball, ice skating, archery, bowling, and much more. Throughout the year youth are encouraged to participate in service projects, Camp CAMREC, and the Mennonite Country Auction. The senior youth also work to raise money for the bi-annual Mennonite Youth Convention, which happens in conjunction with the MC USA Assembly. Each youth has the opportunity to be paired with an adult mentor from the congregation in SMC’s mentoring program.
