Sunday School is for all children birth through 8th grade. We meet in the Family Café on Sunday mornings from 9-9:50 a.m. where we sing songs, hear Bible stories, make crafts, act out skits, and other fun faith related activities centered around each week’s theme. We currently use the Narrative Lectionary curriculum “Living the Word.” Parents of young children are encouraged to stay with their child.

Gospel Rock
Gospel Rock is our mid-week children’s program which takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6-7:15 p.m. in the Art Room. All students in grades 2-5 are invited to participate in lessons about Heroes of the Bible, stories of Jesus and lessons on the fruit of the spirit, which includes fun and exciting activities like arts and crafts, recreation, team building and so much more!

Jr. High youth group is offered to students in 6th, 7th & 8th grades and meets on Wednesday evenings in the Youth room located next to the Family Café from 6-7:15 p.m. Designed for the pre-teen student, this class tackles current event issues that range from understanding the Bible, to Prayer, the Holy Spirit and being Presbyterian.

Similar to the Jr. High youth group, the Sr. High students discuss topics relevant to their own lives using “Faith Questions, “ a study guide to encourage our young people to look to scripture in relevant and responsive ways.

Children and Youth Upcoming Activities








"A Red Letter Christmas"

                   

“A Red-Letter Christmas” – When we look around, we see that the
Christmas season is filled with many colors that bring us back to why we celebrate. The gold in the ringing church bells reminds us of the angels announcing Jesus’ arrival. The green in the wreaths brings us to the hillside where the shepherds watched their flock on Christmas night. Finally, the red in the stripes of candy canes leads us toward the words in the Bible that Jesus spoke and the sacrifice He made to give us eternal life.
In this year’s children’s Christmas musical, the story of Christ’s birth comes alive with every color of the season. Let our version of “A Red-Letter Christmas” take you on a journey through the colors of Christmas and ultimately point your heart towards the life and the words of Christ on Sunday, December 17 during the 10:00 a.m. worship service
