Register for Church School 2018-2019!

Children are always in worship. We continue to create worship opportunities and elements that reach all ages. We also understand that sometimes our children learn best in a group of their peers. We extend our worship learning during the 9 a.m. worship service in our church school classrooms. Families begin in worship and children are released mid-worship. Classes are divided by age.

Our teachers are dedicated to creating a space where our children can learn stories, pray together, and ask questions. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of all of our learners, thinking creatively and openly about how children learn best. Depending on the lesson, you may notice our children taking part in creative prayer, a lively discussion, practicing the Lord’s prayer, hearing a story from the Bible, talking about self-care, dancing, or exploring the church.

CHILDCARE

Childcare is offered during weekly worship service and throughout the year for many classes, events and meetings. It’s best if you check in advance to see if childcare is offered for your class or event. Our childcare staff is made up of consistent and trained people who are passionate about creating a fun and safe space for our infants and toddlers.

CURRICULUM

Plymouth Church School uses a curriculum that we create in-house. Our curriculum answers the questions:

What do we want our children to know as they grow as people of faith?

How can we support them as they question and discern who they are God’s child?

How can we help our children know that God loves them no matter what, every minute of every day?

How can we support our children as they leave our church doors and spread the love of God to others through their words and actions?

A yearly scope and sequence is available upon request and will be given to each family at the beginning of the programming year.

BIBLES

Our church school classes use the following Bibles:

3’s-2nd Grade: The Beginner’s Bible

3rd-6th Grade: The Adventure Bible

All third graders receive their own copy of the Adventure Bible. Families are encouraged to purchase Bibles for their children to use at home and in church school. Bibles are available for purchase through Beaverdale Books and all major book sellers. Classroom copies are available as well in each of our classrooms.
