Our Church School begins on September 15, 2019!
Our church school program invites all children from pre-school age through grade eight to join us each Sunday at 10:00 am. Children begin their Sunday morning in worship with their parents. Pastor Lisa invites all of the children to join her for Children’s Time at the front of the sanctuary, prior to them leaving for their class lesson.
Throughout the church school year, our children are encouraged to be part of community outreach efforts: filling Christmas stockings during Advent workshop, creating Easter baskets for children in need, sending handmade valentine cards to community members who need cheer, or bringing canned food items to support FISH and the Harwinton Food Pantry.
Preschoolers Our preschoolers are lovingly cared for by our volunteers in our nursery room. Children are given the opportunity to interact with other children as they participate in a bible story lesson of God’s love for them.
Kindergarten - 5th Grade Our curriculum provides our children with bible stories, prayers, crafts and songs, which encourage them to explore and experience a lifestyle based on Jesus’ teachings. Children take home their Bible story each week, which is a great tool for encouraging discussion of Christian concepts at home.
6th, 7th & 8th Grade Through an in-depth exploration of biblical stories and characters, our middle school teens are challenged to take their new-found understanding and apply it to their everyday lives.
Confirmation Class Every other year, our eighth and ninth graders are offered a full year of confirmation classes to prepare them for their decision to join the church as young adults. Pastor teaches the confirmation classes and it is a wonderful opportunity for our youth to develop a relationship with her, while exploring their own understanding of faith.
Confirmation celebrates the acceptance of God's claim on our life, our decision to participate in the life of the church and our willingness to participate in God's work around the world.
