Faith Development for Children


2020-21 Programs for Children

Sunday School
The 2020-21 school year began Sunday, September 13th during the 9:30 a.m. worship service. Classes are not in-person but learning is still done through a variety of ways. Click here ——> Sunday School Registration20-21 to register for Sunday School.

Last day of Sunday school will be May 23rd. Summer Sunday school will begin June 13th. 
Summer programming will be creating an outdoor Bible garden!

Children’s Message: Each Sunday there is a short lesson for the children given by our director of faith development, Rebecca Malke during the 9:30 am worship service.  Additional materials such as coloring activities, science experiments, baking and games will be emailed to families. If you missed the Sunday service you can view the children’s lesson on our YouTube channel: Memorial UCC Faith Development. Be sure to click subscribe to get all the latest videos.

Video:  On the Sundays where our director will not be giving the children’s message (about 1-2 Sundays a month) the children will receive a message from either the pastor or a member of the congregation. Families will then be sent videos from this year’s curriculum from Sparkhouse. For grades 4K-6th we are using Whirl and for our middle school youth we’re using Re:form Ancestors.

Monthly activities: Each month we’ll have physically distanced group events. These could be making social justice signs to be displayed at church, raking leaves for church members, or picking up garbage in a neighborhood. So far we’ve had video game nights, chalk art in the parking lot and an outdoor movie.

Upcoming events
Outdoor Vacation Bible School: August 9-13th from 9-11:30 am. This year we’ll be offering Cokesbury’s Knights of the North Castle.  For more information, contact our VBS director, Jann Veloff at jgrizz0014@aol.com.


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.
