Faith Development for Children

2018-19 Programs for Children

With the help of an experienced and committed team of teachers our program will:

* Apply our beliefs in God and Jesus to our lives
* Help children gain a better understanding of Jesus and the Bible
* Teach children to work together in a caring and peaceful community

Sunday School
Join us during the summer for Sunday school classes starting at 9:30 am. In honor of Memorial UCC installing new solar panels on its roof, children and youth will focus on solar themed lessons. Classes are for those entering 5K – 7th grade.

Classes for the 2018-19 Sunday school year will begin on September 9th at 10 am and will continue until June 9th 2019.  Grades 4K through seventh will be using a curriculum called Holy Moly.

4K through first grade: Every Holy Moly lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Second through Fourth grade: Every Holy Moly lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Fifth through seventh grade: Every Holy Moly lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Eighth through ninth grade: Confirmation
Our confirmation program helps young people in their early teens to decide if they are ready to become members of our congregation, and confirm that they want to walk in the way of Jesus.

Upcoming Events:

Start of Summer Sunday School: June 10th – August 26th at 9:30 am
Summer Sunday school classes are for children going into grades 5K -7th grade. In honor of the congregation voting on getting solar panels for the church, we’ll have a solar theme for our summer classes. Scriptural passages, stories and various activities will be used to explain important ecological and faith concepts.  If a particular Sunday does not have enough volunteers, parents will be notified in advance that there will be no class that Sunday and their child(ren) will be in the service.

Vacation Bible School: August 6th – 10th from 9-11:30 am

Back to Sunday School Party: Friday, August 31 from 5-8 pm.
The votes are in and the winning activity for this year’s party will be a potluck and game night at Memorial! We’ll have indoor and outdoor games available for children, youth and adults. Please bring a dish to share.

Blessing of the Backpacks and Lunchboxes: September 2nd at 10 am

Mission Statement

To create and promote opportunities for religious education, spiritual growth, and intergenerational connections for our members and friends throughout their lifespans.

Our picture policy

We will not identify any children by name in photos on the web site or Facebook. We ask members and friends to notify us on the registration form if they do not want their children pictured on the web site or Facebook at all. Please let the pastor or director of faith development know if you are concerned about this.
