Children and Youth Ministries
Through a curriculum based on The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally-Lloyd Jones, children at First United Church of Christ, Ebensburg learn the story of God’s love—a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.
Middle and high school students engage in regular Faith Basics conversations with the pastor. These discussions are rooted in scripture from the CEB Student Bible and challenge a critical consideration of faith in action in the church, local, and wider communities.
The CEB Student Bible is a Bible by and for young people that invites them into deeper forms of both personal holiness and social holiness, helps them make connections between the world of the Bible and their own world, offers resources for engaging the text in personal and group study, embodies a commitment to taking young people seriously as Christian leaders now, not just in the future. It is a resource that helps young disciples of Jesus Christ as they transform the world.
Children and teens are valued participants in our worship service and integral to the life of the church. Younger children join the pastor for a Children’s Sermon at the altar each week. Older children and teens contribute to worship in roles of acolytes, ushers, and readers.
At this time, youth ministries is temporarily halted due to Covid-19. Please continue to check back here for updated information. Thank you.
