Families with Children

 Sunday School Registration is now open

We have Sunday school for children from mid-September through mid-June. Kids arrive at 9:45 a.m. and are done by 11. We use a one-room schoolhouse approach. Most of our kids are in grades 1-7, but younger ones are welcome too. Older children usually worship with their parents during the same hour. We meet in the Holton Hall pre-school area (downstairs) while the congregation worships upstairs.

How it works: Children are guided to explore ways that the Love of God informs our life concepts.   Activities and games are inspired by Bible stories.  We consider how they apply to everyday life situations and explore the effects of our choices on each other, the world, and the environment.

Children can expect to spend time playing games, doing crafts, growing things, learning songs, reading the Bible, preparing and eating snacks, considering the Earth, attending and participating in portions of church services, and doing missions projects.

Teachers utilize The Group Publishing’s Faith Weaver Bible Curriculum and One room school principles.  Thus older children are given opportunities to assist younger children during group activities.

As we learn about connections to God, to each other and to the land, we hope to grow things in a community organic gardening plot allocated to the Sunday school and located directly behind the church.

All children are welcome to join the Sunday school at any time.  Questions can be addressed to bertnoyes@comcast.net .
