We offer Sunday School each week from 9:45–10:45 am in the Children’s Hallway.
Children in Kindergarten through 4th grade will explore Bible stories through Growing in God’s Love, a relationally focused curriculum published by PCUSA. During our time together children will read and hear a story of God’s people from Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible, pause to wonder and reflect on the story, and learn to bless one another and their communities with God’s love and grace.
Fifth graders connect with God’s big story through videos, Bible exploration, and hands-on projects during their Sunday school class designed to engage preteens.
A TIME FOR YOUNG DISCIPLES
During worship services, preschool and elementary-age children enjoy Time with Young Disciples. During this time, the children come forward for an age-appropriate introduction to the worship theme of the day.
During both worship services, Children’s Chapel is offered for Kindergarten–2nd graders. The children leave worship with their group right before the sermon to enjoy a child-friendly message and return when the sermon has ended. To participate, sign up before the service at the Welcome Desks outside McCoy Chapel or the Great Hall.
In the fall, our Worship Class is offered to third graders (and up) during the 11 o’clock service and supported with at-home discussions and activities. Children learn about all the different parts of worship and why/how we all worship together. Through the at-home portion of the class, families are equipped and encouraged to have thoughtful discussions about worship with their children. Participants who complete the class are recognized at a special graduation during worship each fall.
Kindergarten-fifth graders are invited to join our children’s choir, PraiseKids. Children of all musical abilities and talents are welcome to come play games and learn new skills as they make a joyful noise! Practices are from 5-6pm on Sunday afternoons during the school year.
