Church School for Children

The Pre/Kindergarten – 2nd grade class is using “Celebrate Wonder”.  Watching this curriculum video, a child host engages children through storytelling, life application, and exploration of a faith word.  They also have craft time. 

The 3rd – 5th grade class is using “Whirl” a curriculum that will connect worship with Church School. This curriculum will help children understand the Christian year and its seasons. Each week, children will begin class by identifying where they are in the Christian Year and watch an animated video to set up the lesson. Next, they dive into the Bible story and respond with creative activities.

Our church adapted a Safe Sanctuary Policy  for the well being and safety of our children and youth.  The purpose of this policy is to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of our children and youth.  Please review this policy with your family.

WORSHIP ARTS PROGRAM

Worship Arts program will return in the Fall 

Children, ages 4 through 5th grade are invited to join us for worship arts. This program is led by Cheryl Ortolf and a music leader.  We have snack from 4:00 – 4:10 p.m. and then break into 2 different age groups.  During art time the children will learn about a Bible story and make a craft connected to the Bible story.  We use all types of art media to be creative!  The children also have music time which is the Worship Art’s children choir. Please refer to the Music page for additional information about the Worship Arts Children’s Choir.

CAMP OPPORTUNITIES

In March we celebrate Camp Sunday, and distribute information packets on all the camp opportunities.  Scholarships are provided to help defray the cost of children and youth that attend the Conference Church Camps at  Camp Aldersgate, North Scituate, RI; Camp Wanakee, Meredith, NH; and Camp Mechuwana, ME.

MISSIONS

Our church school supports our church’s mission projects in various ways throughout the year.  This way our children will have a better understanding as to what our church does to help people in the community and throughout the world.  Our two big projects will be Thanksgiving Baskets and our Advent Mission Focus.

Throughout the year the Church School also participates in various Service projects such as: make Valentines and cards to home bound and those in need.
