Register for Families forming Disciples and select your top two choices for gathering.

*Preschool children, are welcome to join; however, if your family only has preschool children, we recommend the weekly digital option.  This program is based on a 45-minute virtual class experience and it may be challenging to sustain their attention and engagement. Preschool and kindergarten can participate in both programs. There is no tuition cost for them to participate. (Registration only allows for one selection, so register for Preschool and Kindergarten and then email Joyce or your catechist that they will participate in both.)

*Parents with children in Grades 6-12, can participate in either or both Families forming Disciples and ChrisTeen programs. You can only register for one program, please select ChrisTeen. Email Joyce if you have a child(ren) also participating in Families forming Disciples so we can create faith groups with similar family groupings

Families forming Disciples will replace RUACH for this year.

ChrisTeen: Grades 6-12

ChrisTeen GRADES 6-12—For the first 9 weeks (or possibly through December), we will have Virtual Small Groups for Grades 6-12, Sunday evenings, 7:00—8:15 pm.

  • These will be groups of teens meeting with small group leaders weekly.
  • They will follow the middle school and high school curriculum.
  • When we can gather, on-site, teens will stay with their small group and small group leader.

Our hope is that when the situation improves, we can begin with the option of a few small groups meeting on-site.

Register for ChrisTeen.

*Parents with children in Grades 6-12, can participate in either or both Families forming Disciples and ChrisTeen programs. You can only register for one program, please select ChrisTeen. Email Joyce if you have a child(ren) also participating in Families forming Disciples so we can create faith groups with similar family groupings
