Children, Youth and Christian Education

We welcome you and your children! Children are very important to our congregation.  They are the future of God’s work in the world!  We take the mission of guidance and teaching seriously, with an emphasis on love, respect, and faith.

Sunday School classes are offered for children from preschool to 8th grade and take place every other Sunday from September until June. Adult teachers are assisted by high school youth (shepherds) and use a curriculum that emphasizes the importance of God’s love and of loving others. Registration for children is open throughout the program year.

There is a Confirmation Class that prepares youth in 8th and 9th grades for full church membership. It is held from September through May every other year.

Our Youth Fellowship is for young adults in High School and beyond. The group meets monthly following church on Sundays. It is a free-flowing, youth-directed group with activities. Lunch and snacks are provided. The schedule is periodically posted in the Arrow or on this website.

Our Sunday School begins in worship at 10 AM on Sunday morning.  Often, the Pastor shares “A Word for All God’s Children” after which about 15 minutes into worship, the children are dismissed from the sanctuary to attend their classes next door in the Church House, where our classrooms are located. Those children wishing to stay with their parents are welcome to do so, however we do encourage parents to try to get their children involved with Sunday school, as it is a wonderful way for them to meet others their age in our church family.

Special Events take place throughout the year for children and families, such as a hayride in the fall, our Advent Event (for making Christmas-themed decorations and snacks), and our Mardi Gras party, among others.

Our Christmas Pageant, presented each year, encourages participation from all the children as well as some of the adults. This is always a highlight of our Christmas season.

Children’s Sunday celebrates the end of the Sunday school year. The children lead worship, act as lay readers, greeters, and ushers, and do some singing. It is a time when we celebrate the youth of our church, the blessings they bring to us, and their growth in Christian faith through our Christian Education ministry.

We hope you stop by on Sunday and let us enjoy meeting you and your family.

We do not have infant care staffed by the church at this time.  We do however have a childcare/nursery area available for your convenience.  Our ushers or other church members are happy to assist you in locating the nursery.

*All Christian Education staff are CORI checked and are dedicated to enriching children’s lives with the word of God through age-appropriate curriculum.
