Children and Youth

Ages 3 - Grade 6:


At FCC Natick, our Faith Formation program uses the Godly Play curriculum for 

children ages 3 to grade 4 and the Connect curriculum for children in grades 5-6.  Our Godly Play and Connect ministry teams combine an interest in children with an eagerness to explore their personal spirituality through the lessons of Godly Play and Connect


We provide opportunities for leaders to attend both internal and external workshops to enhance their ministries and deepen their own spirituality.  We welcome your participation in this vibrant ministry!  Come visit one 

of our Godly Play or Connect Worship Centers to witness what we are excited about!

Grades 7 - 8:  

The Junior Youth Group, for those in grades 7 - 8, meets two Sundays a month from 5:00 - 6:30 PM. The Our Whole Lives (OWL) sexuality education program is offered every other year. It will next be offered in Fall 2023.


Grades 9 - 12:

The Senior Youth Group, for those in grades 9-12, meets twice a month on Sunday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 PM to spend time in a safe space with their peers and leaders.  


These Sunday night meetings are a safe space for:

  • worshipping in a relaxed and interactive style
  • forming deeper relationships with each other
  • sharing about the stresses and challenges of their lives
  • celebrating their victories and milestones
  • learning to look for God in unexpected places
  • growing in faith and in group leadership
  • serving their community together


Members of both youth groups also participate in worship leadership during our Sunday morning worship services, as well as our annual Maundy Thursday intergenerational worship service and potluck dinner.


A Confirmation class is offered every other year for our 10th and 11th graders. It will be offered next in Fall 2024.
