Spiritual Formation

SOTH is a community of people on a journey of Christian spiritual formation. This is a lifelong process of greater wholeness with God, with others, and with oneself. We see education as a key component of spiritual formation but believe it also encompasses aspects such as spiritual practices, service, worship, play, retreats, music, creation care, engagement with neighbors, justice, relationships, and experiences. Here you will find opportunities for all ages to explore, discover, and grow in faith. All with the goal of deepening our capacity to impact the world with God’s love.

Children's Ministry

Kids’ Connection is our Sunday School for children aged 4 – 4th grade, held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, 9:30 – 10:30 am. This is a time for kids to learn Bible stories, develop relationships, and grow in God’s love. After kids are signed in by a parent in the narthex, they will go downstairs with one of their teachers just before worship starts. Parents will pick up kids downstairs in the children’s library and sign them out.
