Children’s Sunday School
Sunday school classes are offered to all children from nursery thru 5th grade: Sunday school for 2 year old thru 5th grade children is during the church service, after Discovery Time, (approximately 9:45) until 10:30 am. The children then gather in the 1-2 classroom for music until approximately 10:45 am. On Communion Sundays (first Sunday of each month) Sunday School will start at 9:30AM with the beginning of worship and children will be dismissed from class before communion begins to join their families in the sanctuary for communion.
Sunday school classes and brief curriculum description are as follows:
All classes are using the “SPARK-Activate Faith” curriculum. This is a faith formation program designed help children become familiar with the Bible, its stories and its characters with the goal of encouraging faith based actions and application to their own lives. Children learn to use the Bible and familiarize themselves with its content. Curriculum is age appropriate, easily understood and designed specifically to engage the various age groups of the four classes offered: 2-3 year olds (nursery), 4K-K, 1st and 2nd graders, and 3rd – 5th graders. Lesson content follows the lectionary calendar and scripture readings that guide FPC’s worship service in the hope that parents and children will have common discussion possibilities to explore at home from their different Sunday worship experiences.
Mid High Class, 6-8th grade
The Mid-High class meets on Sunday mornings immediately following the sermon until 11:45, with the goal of keeping the class relevant to issues facing youth and their interests. We spend time learning about the reformed tradition, what it means to be Presbyterian and are always looking for ways to be contributing members of the FPC family.
During class time we:
- Discuss the sermon.
- Discuss the lesson from the curriculum Colaborate – New Testament or work on a special project dictated by needs of community and congregation and the interests of the class.
- Close with sharing joys and concerns and prayer.
