Philosophy and Programs
Our educational ministries are designed to provide opportunities for God’s children of all ages to ask and explore questions of faith in a nurturing, accepting environment.
Communion Curriculum Program
A Joyful Feast. A Communion Curriculum Borrowed and Adapted from Second Congregational Church of Oxford, UCC’s Communion Program.
During the Sunday morning worship service, we provide loving nursery care for our infants and toddlers through age 3. This includes a short story time and snack for older toddlers and serves to introduce our littlest ones to the stories of our faith. Our Nursery program is available September to June.
For children age three (pre-kindergarten) through grade 8, we offer regular Sunday School classes using an ecumenical curriculum sponsored by a number of denominations in America, Canada, and Australia. It encompasses worship, education, and mission. Sunday School begins after the children and youth participate in the first part of the 10 a.m. Sunday morning worship service and runs until 11:15 a.m. starting September 8, 2015.
Participants the Youth Ministry programs have the opportunity to put faith into action through a variety of outreach and mission projects during the program year and also assist with and lead the Sunday morning worship service on occasion.
All of our Sunday School teachers, youth advisers, and volunteers are CORI-checked.
