Children & Youth

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6 NIV)

The Nursery

 

We have a great nursery which is staffed by dedicated volunteer Dottie McKee. Parents are invited to have their little ones up to the age of 3 enjoy the many toys and adult supervision. The nursery is on the main level next to the choir room. From the back door, follow the first hallway on the left to the end. All other church school classes -- aside from the Disciples -- are held in classrooms on the lower level beneath the parish hall.

Pre K to Kindergarten-Noah's Helpers

 

Noah’s Helpers uses Living the Good News curriculum, which is lectionary-based and focuses on the same Bible stories that children will be hearing in the worship service. Each lesson includes a story in age-appropriate language, movement or music, and a related activity or craft, which makes spiritual formation fun and meaningful for our youngest students.

Grades 1 & 2 - The Apostles

 

This age group uses Weaving God’s Promises to explore their understanding of God through the most well-known stories in the Bible. Arts, crafts and multi-week projects play a large role in teaching these stories.

Grades 3, 4, & 5- The Disciples

 

The Disciples class uses elements from both Living the Good News and Weaving God’s Promises, as well as Bible stories with common themes. The focus in this class is interactive, experiential formation, where students will begin to really relate the messages of the Bible to their own lives.
