SUNDAY SERVICE AT 10:00AM

Children’s brains respond to their experiences in long-lasting ways. experiences translate into brain structure changes, seen with advanced imaging. Children need strong relationships—safe, supportive environments; to be engaged with family and community; and to have emotional growth opportunities. This talk will explore how human development builds on faith practices: being in loving community, engagement in creating positive change, and celebrating lifecycle events.
