Children's Activities and Events
There are two Children's Choirs: the Alleluia Singers, for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade, and the Lantern Chorale, for children in grades 4 through 8. For more information, click here.
Music for Children: As part of our 'Education Hour for All' between worship on Sundays, DelCarla Shorter will be leading children in singing fun songs in the Library each Sunday from 9:45 to 10:15 am. Parents are welcome to join!
The Milestone Project Continues: The focus for all Church School Classes in January was on the Beatitudes and will be celebrated in worship on February 19. The focus in February is Psalm 23.
On February 19, the Lantern Chorale will sing at the 10:30 am worship service.
On February 26, the Alleluia Singers will sing at the 10:30 am worship service.
Our Worship Workshop will give second-graders and their parents an opportunity to learn about the parts of our worship service, read in the Bible about Jesus’ baptism and Last Supper with his disciples, and have a scavenger hunt in the Sanctuary. Corinne Silva and Rosanna Morrison will lead this three-session workshop on Sundays, January 29, February 5, and February 12 from 9:15 to 10:15 am. On February 12, all children who participated will be given their own Hymnal at the 10:30 am worship service.
On March 5 and 12 at 9:30 am in Room 108, Pastor David and BHPC Elder Steve Elder will teach Bible Class for Third-Graders and Their Parents. All third-graders and their parents are invited to come learn about the amazing gift God has given us in the Bible.
SAVE THE DATES: Vacation Bible School will run from August 28 to August 31, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The program will be based on Cokesbury’s “Super Heroes” curriculum, and we will run the program in-house this year,
|Vacation Bible School||VBS is a week-long summer day camp for children ages 3 (potty-trained) through 5th grade. It is usually held in August.|
|Worship Workshop||One month during the year (generally during the winter) parents and children in second grade will have an opportunity to learn about worship, explore belonging to a community of faith through baptism and communion, and talk about the order of worship and liturgy. Children who complete the Worship Workshop receive their personal copy of the Presbyterian (USA) Hymnal.|
All children attending the 5:00 Christmas Eve Service are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Christmas Pageant as we need many shepherds, sheep, animals and angels. There will be no rehearsals, but children are asked to meet in Covenant Hall at 4:30 p.m. in order to allow time to put on their church costumes.
|Receiving Bibles||Third-graders receive the New Revised Standard Version Bible each spring.|
