Children and Family Ministry
Christian Education is an important emphasis for disciples of all ages, but especially critical in the early years of faith development. Mt. Horeb provides opportunities for children of all ages and adults to engage in Faith Formation each Sunday at 9:00am. Children under two are welcome in the nursery during the Sunday School time.
This 3rd-5th grade youth group meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 4pm for programs and activities geared towards the creative, inquisitive and active learning style of our young disciples. With questions about Peace Frogs, please contact the church office (803) 345-2000.

Confirmation is our program for Middle School students to engage the faith through encounter with the Catechetical teachings of the church. In Confirmation, students will learn the basic tenets of the faith, and then together explore what impact their faith has on their day-to-day life, their relationships and their futures. For more information, please contact the church by calling (803) 345-2000.
