One of the central tasks in a church community is that of passing on the faith! At the baptism of each child of our community, we promise to make sure they know the story of our faith, especially the story of Jesus, God in the Flesh. We give each newly baptized child’s parents a Story Book Bible to begin to share the story even before the child enters Sunday School! We carry out our commission through these ministries:
Sundays @ 9:30 AM
Children’s Church meets each Sunday morning, during worship. Our dedicated leaders share the love of Jesus in story, crafts, art, cooking, and games!
We have an “open house” for youth grades 7 – 12 and we meet from 6 – 8 PM on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. We eat, play games, talk a little, and enjoy time together.
Vacation Bible School (a.k.a. “Church Camp”)
Each year, traditionally the second full week in August, we invite the children of the neighborhood and community to join in a week of story, games, art, music, and growing in their relationship with the Lord.
Visit our dedicated VBS page for information about this year’s summer camp.

Sturgeon Bay-Great Kills Youth Partnership
Each November friends from Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church, in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, travel to Staten Island for their annual Mission Trip for high school kids. They “live” in the Great Kills Moravian Church Thursday through Sunday, as they work in various mission efforts around Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Manhattan.
