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:

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF party: Sunday, October 28th starting at 10:15 a.m.
Our annual Halloween party teaches children and youth about the work UNICEF does around the world and how kids can help kids. There will be treats, games and prizes! After the party children will trick-or-treat in church to raise money for UNICEF. Be sure to wear your costume!

Advent Workshop: December 9th from 10:15 to 11:15 am.
Join us as we use recycled and store bought materials to make presents for family and friends. We’ll have a gift wrapping table available full of brightly colored paper, ribbons and bows. Christmas music will be played and cookies and hot chocolate served. Adults, do you want to join in the fun? Be a volunteer and sneak in a few crafts gifts for yourself!

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.
