Children & Youth

 

Growing Together in Faith

 

Sunday School

Sunday School classes for all ages meet
September-May from 9:00-10:00am.

    • Godly Play (preK-2) uses a Montessori based learning system with soft words, encouraging voices and nurturing to grow in faith.
    • Bible Town (3-6) utilizes a more challenging curriculum with hands on techniques and creative touches that are engaging and exciting!
    • Confirmation Class (7-9) explores the history of the church, what it means to be a Matthew 25 congregation and more as they prepare for confirmation.
    • Sr. High (9-12) offers food and fellowship followed by opportunities for study, reflection, and growth in Christian faith with topics identified by the youth themselves as relevant and important in their lives.

Music also plays a part of Sunday School each week for Godly play, Bible Town and Confirmation classes!  This is a time of exploring and developing their musical gifts through singing, playing instruments and creative movement.  

 

 Our church nursery is available for young children on the first floor of our building who need a place to play or rest during Sunday School or worship. It is staffed by caring volunteers and paid nursery workers from the College of Wooster.  Please feel free to make use of our nursery on Sunday mornings.

 

Joy Worship

Join us during the 10:15 a.m. worship hour to dive into kid friendly spiritual ways of learning the word of God. With music, storytelling and creativity, the children walk away with a renewed heart!

Kids ROC

During this time we simply have fun in God's name. Our focus is enjoying our fellowship and spreading God's love to others in the community.  There are many opportunities to learn and have fun, all while being in a safe and secure environment.  This is a great way for your child to be involved in our community!

Youth Group

We welcome everyone to learn, worship, serve, and have fun together.  Here in the Youth Center we grow into real relationships with God and one another. Here we find purpose.  And here we find love and joy.

 

Special Events

Children and youth have the opportunity to also participate in several special music events and worship services through the year including Youth Sunday in the fall, an Advent program in December, and our Celebration Sunday in May to end the program year. These events allow our special musical talents to show through in individual, small, and large group settings. 

Youth have the opportunity to participate in mission trips during the summers as well as attend Presbyterian Youth Triennium.  They also have several fundraising efforts throughout the year, including participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring and putting on an annual Italian Dinner in Bruch Hall.
