Sunday School (Ages 3 by Sept. 1 – 4th Grade)
All ages, 3-adult in 2020 have Sunday School at 8:45 am on Sundays, followed by worship together. This is a 5-month pilot. Your feedback is valuable! For details, here.
Grow Together…Worship Together – Over the past few months, our Children and Family Ministries committee at fpcw has been discerning the most faithful and accessible way to grow the faith of our youngest disciples. The conversation continued this fall as the church staff and Session offered feedback and explored various options. We believe we have arrived at a solution that will help us “Grow Disciples” (as the second phase of our mission statement calls us to) of all ages on Sunday mornings.

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.
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 gather on the 2nd floor, Yellow 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. Sunday School curriculum is designed by the Dir of Children’s Ministry, Lindley Traynor, and implemented by volunteer parents who teach. Volunteers are always welcome from anyone in our congregation, not just parents.
