Faith Formation Ministries recognizes that the seed of faith starts at birth and it is our covenant to grow and nurture that faith by building relationships with our young people, by supporting young people's relationships with God, by living one’s faith through mission and service, and by experiencing faith as a vibrant and compassionate way to live life connected to God and others.
