Meeting for parents and children of the Confirmation Class of 2020

Parents, please bring your calendars and the $30 class fee for Confirmation.

March 10 and 17 are special days in Sunday School

March 10 will be our second Buddy Sunday in this school year. Buddy Sunday is a time when older and younger children get to meet each other and begin to build recognition and  community through prayer and sharing a Bible story together. Our goal for this day is for older children to act as mentors to the younger children and for younger children to meet older children to include in their faith community.

We invite  the children to pray for each other during the week following Buddy Sunday. Children will bring home a Buddy Book which names their new church friend.

March 17 will be a Day of Service. Children will gather in age-level groups to learn what the Kingdom of Heaven is like and do service projects for others.

  • Faith, Love and Grace will meet together in CW 115
  • Grades 1-3 will meet in Grundy Hall
  • Grades 4-6 will gather in Courtenay Lounge for Donuts and Dialogue with the Confirmation journey leaders then do their service project

4th grade retreat to be held on February 10 .

We are looking forward to the 4th Grade Retreat on Sunday, February 10th!  Our group will meet at the regular 9:45 Sunday school time and then worship together as a class at the 11:00 service.  Following the service, we will have a lunch in Courtenay Hall.  Our afternoon will be filled with fun games, crafts, and a service project.

Our service project will be making care packages with Valentines notes to residents of a Longterm Care Facility.  We would like for each child to bring two toothbrushes to include in the care packages.

Please plan on joining your child at 3:20 for a closing prayer and we will dismiss at 3:30.  Have your 4th grader leave their phone at home, and plan on having a blast playing silly games and learning more about their friends at church.  The cost will be $10 and can be paid on the retreat day.

5th grade retreat- January 26, 2019

Fifth graders and their leaders will gather on Saturday January 26 for an all-day retreat. This is a special day in which we hope all fifth graders will join us. Our time together will include serving at Preston Taylor, and fellowship with each other as we play together. We invite families to come eat and worship with us at 5 p.m. on Saturday to conclude the retreat.

On Sunday, January 27 the retreat continues as fifth graders and their leaders (and any family members who wish to join us) worship at the Downtown Presbyterian Church. This trip is part of the fifth grade study of the early church and a visit to the sanctuary where First Presbyterian Church began is a great compliment to the Sunday School sessions. We will return to FPC to eat together following worship and a tour.
