TLC Youth & Family Ministry sits at the heart of who we are as a church. We seek to live out the identity into which we’re drawn by the love of God proclaimed over us in baptism. We live out our identities as baptized children of God by:

●  Showing up!
●  Worshiping as a community
●  Learning and listening
●  Asking hard and honest questions
●  Having fun
●  Growing in love for ourselves, one another and God
