At Davies, we believe that each generation has a lot to teach the others. We look to our elders for insights from their decades of experience, and we look to our youth for insights unique to their lives – insights that keep us deeply and actively involved in the wider world.
Teen participants bring their wisdom to Soul Matters and post-service discussion groups, to the complexity of ADORE meetings, and to conversations following intergenerational field trips. They serve regularly as Worship Associates. A trio of lay preachers includes a teen member who will preach three times each year.
All generations come together on Sunday morning with children as full participants in the first half of the service. Before the congregation “sings them out” to their classroom, our youngest members have a chance to join in the hymns, share a personal Joy or Sorrow, and lead the congregation in their signed interpretation of the beloved song “Spirit of Life.”
