Sunday School (Ages 3 by Sept. 1 – 4th Grade) – This fall our children will be exploring the Sermon on the Mount. What does Jesus have to say about being salt and light? About asking, seeking, and finding? About building houses on sand or rock, or loving our enemies? What does it mean to be “blessed”? And how can we be “secret agents” of God? Sundays at 10:15, beginning September 16th.
Infant and Toddler Nursery – Our nursery offers a caring and safe environment for our youngest children. The nursery is located on the landing, up the half flight of stairs from the sanctuary. The nursery is staffed with two professional caregivers each Sunday from 8:45 to 11:45 am.
Communion Sundays – On the first Sunday of each month, children go up to the Yellow Room as usual for Sunday School, but will be brought down to rejoin their families in the sanctuary for communion. There is no age restriction for communion at FPCW. Children are invited to partake in the Lord’s Supper, or simply may simply observe.
Family Worship Sundays – On the last Sunday of each month, children participate with the whole church family as we worship together at 10 am in the Sanctuary. Children’s worship bags, including fun and engaging activities, are available. Nursery care is available.
Third Grade Bibles – Children in third grade are given Bibles during the worship service on Sunday, October 28. Immediately following the service, families are invited to a brief “How to Use Your Bible” workshop. Refreshments will be provided.
About Our Sunday School Ministry
Through Bible stories, prayer, music, and discussion with caring teachers and each other, children in Sunday school will learn about God, the Bible, elements of worship, and explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
INFANT AND TODDLER NURSERY The Infant and Toddler Nursery is a nurturing and safe environment for our youngest children, from birth to three years old. The nursery is staffed with two professional caregivers and occasional congregational volunteers each Sunday from 8:45 to 11:45 a.m. They give each child the best possible care during worship activities each week. The nursery is full of toys and books, offering the children a smooth transition. The nursery is located on the landing just half a flight of stairs from the sanctuary and balcony.
PRESCHOOL (three years old by September 1st) THROUGH 4th GRADE:
Children begin in 10 a.m. worship with their parents. After the Time with Young Disciples, they go upstairs to the Bible Knowledge Room, where they gather together to sing, pray, play games, and hear an introduction to the Bible story of the week, then break into smaller classes (PreK/K, 1st/2nd, and 3rd/4th) for further discussion, activities and crafts.
FAMILY WORSHIP SUNDAYS
The last Sunday of each month is Family Worship. Children in preschool through 4th grade are invited to worship in the sanctuary with their families. Children’s worship bags with activities are provided by the ushers. Nursery care is available.
