Upcoming Children's Events

The Ten Commandments Milestone project continues! We are practicing the song under Matt’s direction in preparation for singing in worship in December. 

Sunday, November 12, Interfaith Worship: The Lantern Chorale (fourth – eighth graders) will sing during the 10:30 service. We will also have a special Interfaith Children’s Event for all elementary-aged children during the education hour.

Sunday, November 19: The Alleluia Singers (kindergartners through third graders) will sing during the 10:30 service.

Sunday, November 26: There will be no church school due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Sunday, December 3: Each child in the first grade will receive a Good Deed Manger kit during the Children’s Message at the 10:30 service. Children will set up their mangers at home and add a piece of straw to the manger for each good deed they do during Advent, so the manger will be soft and welcoming for the arrival of baby Jesus on Christmas. 

Sunday, December 24:  The early worship service on Christmas Eve will be at 4:00 pm.  Children who wish to participate in the pageant should gather at 3:30 pm.


Annual Children's Events

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.
Christmas Pageant

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.
