Redemption Ministries calls for passion, patience, and faithfulness – pointing out the sacred in the midst of the chaos of adolescence and walking faithfully with young people as they transition from child to young adult. Redemption Ministries is a bridging ministry of education, connection, formation, and hopefully, transformation.
Responding to the spiritual needs of teens is about building trusting relationships. COA Church strives to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world. Redemption Ministries is grounded in the Five Marks of Mission and the Baptismal Covenant, building church-wide networks to invite, inspire, affirm, and equip youth for discipleship and Christian leadership in their lives and their communities.
COA Children's Ministry (pre-school to 5th grade) takes place in the 2nd floor of the brick building across from church
