Church School is available for children from age four through 7th grade most Sunday mornings throughout the program year, September through May, at 10:30 AM.
For the start of the 2021-22 year, we’re using a “one-room schoolhouse” model. All students begin the day in worship in the Sanctuary. Then, after the Chancel Talk, 4-year-olds through 5th-graders will gather together in the Edwards Room, and 6th- and 7th-graders will meet in the Copenhaver Room.
Every first Sunday of the month, all children stay in worship for a full hour.
For Fourth-Graders: About Baptism and Communion (“ABC”) Classes
Held every spring, this class invites fourth graders to explore in an engaging, hands-on way the meaning of our two sacraments: baptism and communion. This memorable rite of passage is taught by clergy and enriches the children’s connection to the church. The program culminates in a special breakfast, and participation in communion.
Donald B. Whittemore Children’s Library
The Children’s Library was dedicated in 1986 in honor of Donald B. Whittemore, an elder and member of the Consistory. Ranging in interest from nursery school through the sixth grade, the collection contains books on religious themes, picture books and poetry for family sharing, fiction, science and biography for older readers. Books may be signed out and borrowed for two weeks.
