Children's Ministry

Church School Vision

graphic: black bullet  We are a church that strives to reflect the love of Christ in our lives. 

graphic: black bullet  We are a learning community called to be the presence of Christ in the world. 

graphic: black bullet  We are shaped by Scripture, by the examples we find in each other, and by the Holy Spirit who moves 
    among us. As such, we are called to learn the stories of our faith told in scripture, to learn who we are as 
    God's children, to find God's purpose for our lives, and to know the great story of God's loving and redeeming 
    presence, not only in history, but in our world today. 

graphic: black bullet  We, students and teachers, embark together on a journey of discipleship. 

graphic: black bullet  We covenant with each other to be faithful, honest, loving, and open to hearing and obeying God's word 
     to each of us. 

graphic: black bullet  We will find in each other God's truth, God's love and God's power. We will share with each other God's truth, 
     God's love, and God's power.

Church School Curriculum

graphic: black bullet  Preschool Class:  Wee Believe: God's Word for God's People (Presbyterian Church USA) 
Along with these age appropriate lessons for very young children, the teachers encourage time for free play, singing, and a snack. The most important lesson the children can learn at this age is that the church is a loving, caring place where we learn God's wonderful stories and meet friends who also love God.

As the people of Israel evolved from wandering tribes into a landed nation-state, they were developing their relationship with God and understanding of God's nature and presence. Their forms of worship became more corporate and sophisticated over this time, culminating in the building of Solomon's temple. As children explore the beginnings of worship with the people of Israel, they will gain an awareness of worship today.

Church School Mission

Each child is encouraged to bring a weekly offering to Church School. Help your child learn to give generously to others by making this a habit.

In addition, children are encouraged to participate in a variety of Church School missions, including: 

  • Bringing food for our church's food closet and for our Deacons' holiday food baskets for families in need
  • Filling UNICEF boxes at Halloween and One Great Hour of Sharing fish banks during Lent and Easter
  • Supporting a mission project chosen by the Church School children
  • Making Church World Service Health Kits on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • Making cards for older, homebound church members.

Third Grade Bible Class

Each Fall, third graders attend a special four-week class to learn about the Bible - when and how it was written, what is in it, the books of the Bible, and more. At the end of the four weeks, students are presented their Third Grade Bibles during a Sunday morning worship service.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, church and community families gather for a wonderful week of Vacation Bible School. There are classes for children ages 3 through 10. Older children and youth, as well as adults, serve as volunteers. Call the church office 
(302.994.5646) for more information about dates and times.
