Belong is what we call our ministry with youth, children and families. Belong exists so all may believe and live in to the truth that they are God’s beloved. 

The mission of Belong is to:

  • Encounter the stories of the Christian Tradition
  • Engage in critical reflection and application of Christian teachings
  • Enact God’s beloved community outside church walls
