LITTLE LAMBS - Age 3-4

Our 3 and 4 year olds learn Bible stories, see them illustrated on the felt board, share a snack, and enjoy time with friends in a safe and nurturing environment with a teaching team that has been together for years.  Room AH-122

LIGHTHOUSE - Grades K-4 

Lighthouse is where hands-on activities and participatory learning make the Bible come alive. Over the course of several weeks, children ages K-4th grade will enjoy Bible learning and relationship building through seven interactive rotations of games, crafts, drama reenactments and videos. We will start the year with lessons about Rahab and the Spies.

CONNECT - Grades 5 & 6

Connect is a Bible-centered class for preteens. Tweens will see how individual stories connect into larger themes that span all of Scripture. We alternate between the Old and New Testament each year. The first unit this year is entitled “Beginnings” and focuses on the book of Genesis.  Room AH-203

Every 5th Sunday we have an all church event for Little Lambs, Lighthouse and Connect

 

Children's Worship Time

children say thank you pastor 21352816

 

 

 

 

 

During worship, children focus on a Scripture verse, share joys and concerns, recite The Lord’s Prayer, and discuss ways faith can make a difference in their lives. After, children age 4 through first grade may go across our enclosed bridge walkway to Andrews Hall, Room 203, for a time of age-appropriate worship. They return to the sanctuary during the final hymn, or prior to Communion or Baptism if either is taking place. Questions or would like to volunteer?

Club 456 5 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who? Club 456 is for all current 4th, 5th & 6th graders. Friends of 456’ers are always welcome and new members can join anytime! We also love our Adult and Teen volunteers, and there are always many opportunities to help!

What? Our motto is food, fun, fellowship and faith! After a quick ice breaker, we jump into short lessons—MINIstries—that address an area of interest to our tweens through games, discussion, activities and art—any creative way to access scripture that is important to their understanding of the world. We then enjoy dinner and dessert in the Celtic Cross Room, where we like to focus on a mission initiative or upcoming event.Then we run, quite literally, to the gym, where we finish with games such as Scatterball, Nine Square, Gaga, etc. and sometimes special contests. IT. IS. SO. MUCH. FUN.

When? Wednesdays 5:30 – 7:15 pm / $5 meal fee for drop ins. We also do field trips and service projects!

5:15-5:30 Sign-in @ Gym

5:35-6:10 Ice Breakers, MINIstry and Discussion @ Teen Room 

6:10-6:40 Dinner and Dessert, Minute for Mission, Music @ Celtic Cross Room

6:45-7:15 GAMES!!!!!! @ Gym

Where? Drop off and pick up can be done at the “loop” (the alley behind Andrews Hall where the Gym double doors are), or by entering the main doors of Andrews Hall on Mechanics Street and proceeding down the staircase to the gym.

Why? We believe that learning about God through fun activities aimed at relationship building will create a solid foundation for a life long journey in Christ. Also, to quote the wisdom of Dr. Seuss, “these things are fun and fun is good.”

THE DETAILS:

Registration - Registration begins in August, but you can register any time! You may Register Online or pick up forms in the church office.

Fees - The cost of the program is $60 per semester, $110 for the year when paid in full, or $5 at the door. This fee covers all dinners, recreation, programs and supplies. Scholarships are available. Pay Online Here

Parent Participation - There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in the program, depending on your availability and talents. We need volunteers to help facilitate the activities and dinner, and for special field trips and service activities.

 BUDDY PROGRAM

buddy program logo good

“Jesus said ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’” (Matthew 19:14)

The Christian Education Committee provides a Buddy Program for students who need assistance in the classroom and beyond. Our mission is to facilitate inclusion inside the life of the church for the individual with additional needs and for their family. Students who may benefit from accommodations will be assigned a buddy while remaining in the same classroom as their peers. Buddies will also be available during worship. If this ministry is something you would like to learn more about, or if you think your child could benefit from it, please contact the church office 215-348-3531. If you are interested in volunteering to serve as a Buddy one Sunday a month, please contact the church office.
