Welcoming children to worship and inviting them for participation are vital parts of our Church. Sunday School begins each week following the youth sermon by our Ministry Coordinator for Children and Youth (about 20 minutes into the service). On the first Sunday of each month, our children begin service in Sunday School and enter the Sanctuary later on to participate in the Sacrament of Communion. There is child care available for infants and toddlers from 9:15 am to 11:00 am during the 9:30 am worship service as well as during other activities throughout the year. Our nursery care begins with a commitment that it is never too early for us to share the love of God with each other.
We’re a member of OASIS Multi-Church Youth Group
The Multi-Church Youth Ministry engages Greater New Haven Youth in Christ’s liberating example, empowering them to flourish as individuals and to co-create our beloved community of faith. Through experiences both joyful and challenging, our selves, our church, and our world become transfigured as the resilient creation God envisions.
Our youth have the opportunity to join with progressive Christian youth throughout the New Haven area in fellowship and ministry. Partnering with Spring Glen Church, First Presbyterian Church, United Church on the Green, and Trinity Church on the Green, North Haven Congregational Church commits to collaborative ministry, sharing in a spirit of ecumenism and common goals. We bring with us our full social and theological affirmation of LGBTQIA+ people, immigrants, refugees, and people of all races and nationalities.
So, if you have a youth in your family (8th-12th grades for weekly events and 5th-7th grades for monthly events) and are interested in participating in youth group this year – now is your chance!
