~ A Parenting Tip for Spiritual Nurturing ~
Think about the gifts each child offers and give thanks for them.
What is most challenging can often be turned around and seen as a gift.
For instance, a child who is slow moving and distracted easily,
while sometimes frustrating to you, this type of child might help you to stop
and see more of the God moments around you!
Pray: “O Beautiful Presence, open my eyes to the opportunities this day
has to offer. Amen.”
The State College Presbyterian Church wants to partner with parents to nurture your child’s faith! We offer many programs for children. Listed here are the Sunday School classes. Our mid-week ministry is listed on additional pages!
The Sunday School Classes start at 10:00 a.m. Children who go to a program, such as Creative Movement and Music or Children and Worship, are taken directly to their Sunday School classes by the teachers. Children in 3rd Grade and older are invited to stay for worship, and learn about how we worship alongside family and friends. They should leave worship at the end of the service and go directly to their classes.

Each Sunday we offer classes for Preschoolers through High School students. We are presently using the PCUSA curriculum “Growing in Grace & Gratitude” with Pre Schoolers, and for our children up through Grade 4. Children, youth, and teachers are always on a faith adventure as they learn about the Bible and our faith traditions in the Presbyterian Church. Together they will read Bible stories based on Scripture that reveal God’s grace.
For more information on our curriculum: growinggracegratitude.org
Our older elementary children in 5th Grade are using the PCUSA New Testament curriculum (Covenant People).
Our middle school and high school students study varied topics of faith issues, the Bible, and the Presbyterian Church. They also use PCUSA curriculum for younger youth, as well as “The Wired Word”, which takes weekly current new stories, and enables the youth to discuss them from the perspective of our faith.
