Children and Youth Activities


Rutgers’ youth group is called S.K.A.T.E. (Sanctuary for Kids of  Acceptance, Trust, and Education).  It is open to youth 13 years of age through seniors in high school and (usually) meets the first Friday of every month during the school year. Activities include:

  • overnights at the church
  • out of the city retreats
  • service projects
  • fun activities throughout the city
  • and much more!

We also offer a Sunday School class called S.K.A.T.E. Breakfast.  Fellowship and breakfast happens from 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM, followed by a time of Christian Education during the worship hour.  On Communion Sundays, youth come up together to worship with the congregation after their fellowship time.
