At SCPC we have many programs for children — for preschool ages on up.  Click on the GrowingINGracesub-menus to the right to learn more about opportunities for children.  If you don’t see what you are looking for, just ask! (contact Deannine Shipman, Director of Education and Program, 238-2422).

Listed below are the rooms for all of our children and youth classes through May 2018.  Children must be the age of the class listed by Sept. 1st , 2017 (or in that grade) to be in that class.  Any questions or concerns may be addressed to Patt Campolongo (Sunday School Superintendent), or to Deannine Shipman (Director of Education and Program – 238-2422).

Please register your child for Sunday School if you are visiting with us!  You can use our interactive online form (found in the sub-menu to the right) or download and print the Sunday School Registration Form (pdf) here and return it to the church office.  Teachers also have the forms in the classrooms.  Providing us with this information helps us in the event we need to contact you or in case of emergency.

During our 9:00 am worship service, children ages 3 and up through older Elementary children are welcome to come forward for the children’s message. Then children, 2nd graders and below, are invited to join in their special programs.  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 should leave worship when it is over, and go directly to their classes. In 2nd/3rd Grade, the snack is served first during the reading of the lesson, so we encourage those children to go directly to class!

The Sunday School Classes start at 10:00 am ~ Adult Education Classes begin at 10:15 am. We do request that parents please stay in the church building during Sunday School so we can reach you in case of an emergency.

Creative Movement and Music

Our preschool aged children (ages 3 -5) are invited to join with music leaders, Ellen Manno and Katie Woodruff in Westminster Hall for a time of music, movement, and fun!  Our leaders are assisted by one of our childcare workers.  This program begins following the Children’s Message during the 9:00 am worship service.  At the conclusion of this program, the children are escorted by their Sunday School teachers to their classrooms.  This program is designed for children who are already 3 years old by September 1, 2017.   Children turning 3 years old during the school year should wait until next Fall to join Creative Movement and Music, which is the same time they will start Sunday School.  (Our Toddler Room is designed for ages 2 and 3.)

Children & Worship Class

Our Children & Worship program begins on September 10th (2017) with leaders, Jody Barth, Linda Edvar, Katie O’Hara Krebs, and Jenny VanHook.  This program is for 1st and 2nd graders who choose not to stay in the worship service.  They meet in Room 11 following the Children’s Message during the 9:00 am worship service.  At the conclusion of this program, the children are escorted by their Sunday School teachers to their Sunday School classrooms.
