Children & Youth

We encourage and empower our youth to grow in the Lord!

Children and youth are very important in our church and we know that the Lord is working among the next generation and He is doing something really significant!

We have a lot of projects and activities for kids and youth. There is Sunday school (the dates of Sunday school are in the calender), games nights, film nights and Bible studies, there are K-10 nights and summer camps. At Ruksa there is a kid’s play corner available for younger kids.

The Sunday school comprises two age groups: kids of age 3-6 and 7-12. When there is no Sunday school, kids are warmly welcome to attend the service with the adults.

The Sparks club – exercise is fun! The gym hours for school aged kids at Hakametsä school hall approximately every other Sunday at 16-17, at Tammitie 8, Uusikaupunki. Welcome to join us! You can see the dates of playing games in Juniors’ calendar on this page. The Sparks also has a project to develop skills in the crafts workshop.

Our Heavenly Father has blessed Ruksa family with a lot of people gifted in music. The styles vary from more traditional hymns to the rhythms of Black Gospel. There are sometimes music services, too.
