YOUTH & CHILDREN
The journey from 6th grade to high school graduation is full of surprises and challenges.
Journey to Adulthood (J2A) is the name of the formation program All Saints' provides for our youth. J2A seeks to reintroduce rituals and celebrations into the life of the parish. Each of the three 2-year sections focuses on different aspects of that "journey to adulthood" we know so well. J2A allows youth to explore their identity, their beliefs, and their roles in the world.
As our youth cultivate their own voice in this world, we're here to remind them they are not alone on their journey. Each class has two adult mentors who can walk beside them as they make their way.
As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, J2A is in a time of reformation: Our in person youth gatherings are not taking place at this time.
Godly Play is an imaginative approach to working with children. It is deeply respectful to the Scripture and the child it works with. This approach supports, challenges, nourishes, and guides the spiritual quest of children.
Jerome Berryman, Godly Play's creator, assumes that children have some experience with the mystery of God in their lives. Godly Play allows children to enter into parables, silence, sacred stories, and sacred liturgy in order to discover God, themselves, and the world around them.
