We aim to help children embody love—to seek and serve Christ in all life, and to strive for justice and peace everywhere.
Growing in love and compassion, serving Christ in all life.
Following Jesus’ Way is a grounded in the experience of God’s healing, liberating, justice-making love for all life. We seek to express this love in “embodied” ways—in the real lives of people and the earth, particularly those historically marginalized such as LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people. Our young people learn to:
KNOW: Learn who God is through scripture, Episcopal tradition, and experiences within community.
BE: Experience ourselves and all life as sacred, made in the image of God.
DO: Engage in opportunities to express faith in action, exploring how Jesus’ Way of Love impacts daily life.
