Eugene Peterson writes in his book, A long Obedience in the Same Direction, “There is a great market for religious experience in our world; there is little enthusiasm for the patient acquisition of virtue, little inclination to sign up for a long apprenticeship in what earlier generations of Christians called holiness.”

Student Ministries at Pillar invites students from all walks of life and school districts into an apprenticeship of holiness. A place where your name is known, story heard, and questions honored all the while be raised up in the truth of God’s word.

If you are a student or parent or anyone interested in hearing more about the invitation into Student Ministries I would love to go for a walk, toss the frisbee around, go to Chick-Fil-A, or have a cup of conversation.

Faith Formation
Classes

9:00 AM and 11:00 AM services for infants through 5th grade. These are the same at both services, as it is our hope that children can worship at one service with their family and attend Faith Formation at the other service. See the Policies and Ministry information

Celebration
Sundays

In Psalm 150, God calls us ALL to worship. So let’s celebrate a time when all God’s children, young and old, gather together to worship. On Celebration Sundays, children ages 4 and up are invited to worship in the sanctuary for the entire service. See the calendar for specific dates

Sacred
Dance

Children in K-5th grade to engage in worship and prayer creatively. Adding movement to songs or prayer creates deeper understanding for children and a visual representation for the congregation. Email pillarkids@pillarchurch.com if your child is interested.
