There is a "tension" between offering age-appropriate and needed ministries that cater to the needs of all people at the church while not dividing the family too much. At Chapel Hill, we are a unique church in that we are approach ministries with a mindset of offering "separate and together" ministries. Children and youth need programming that meets their developmental needs, but children and youth also need meaningful interaction with adults and mentors. At the same time, adults of all life-stages need ministries that are best suited for them but they too benefit from the energy and exuberance of youth. Check out our ministries that try to have "the best of both worlds".
Worship For All Ages
All ages are encouraged to worship and serve together. 11:00 Worship is for the entire family. Statistic show that youth drop out of church BECAUSE of separate worship from adults and mentors. Attending worship and serving together helps keep young people plugged into the life of The Church well after graduation. Young people need the experience of older people and older people need the energy and excitement of younger people. Of course, the difference is for infants and toddlers. During worship services, we offer childcare for infants and toddlers so that parents can be fully attentive to meeting their spiritual needs.
Programs For All Ages
Listed below, you will see some of our age-specific ministries and who you can contact in order to get involved. While we love the reality of families being in worship together, we also know the reality of needing to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of all ages. Whether you are a wise-aged person, a High School Student or a Child, we have age appropriate programming and activities just for you but we STILL BELIEVE that the best place to grow is in relationships with folks of all ages and experiences. Sometimes "less programs" actually equals better growth and relationships!
