As a solo pastor serving half time, at what is considered a small congregation, I quickly learned that although we are small and cannot have multiple staff members, we still deserved quality Christian Education for our children and their families.  Many Sundays with more than half of our congregation consisting of children and youth, we knew that we needed to have opportunities for our children and youth to discover their spirituality.  Through Sacred Stones, Rev. Denise has created safe space for our children to learn and grow.  Laity are being encouraged and trained to teach our children, Sunday School is now available for our children, Confirmation has begun, families are discovering God together, and a bridge has been built to bring together adults and children.  Bethany United Methodist Church’s partnership with Sacred Stones has truly been a blessing.
