Shepherd of the Valley actively partners with families in our mission of faith formation. It all begins in the waters of baptism, and continues into adulthood.
The entire community of faith also plays a significant role in the formation of vibrant faith in children and youth, and so we strive to:
- Recruit, train and support adults to work with Children, Youth, and Families in ways that fit their gifts, passions, and personalities.
- Empower the whole congregation to fulfill their responsibilities as the adoptive “faith family” of all young people through educating and inviting participation in creative, authentic, and appropriate ways.
- Recognize that all the ministries of the church are tied to CYF ministry and collaborate across departments for forming vibrant faith.
The following ministries support children (birth through fifth grade) and their families:
