Primary School Program
Presently, we are meeting for Sunday School during the worship hour. The elementary-aged children leave the worship service during the offertory and go with their teachers to the Scott Education Building for the remainder of the hour. They return to their families at the conclusion of worship in time for “Lemonade on the Lawn” or “Cider in the Cemetery.”
Our curriculum for the Winter and Spring is “Great Men and Women of Faith Who Have Made a Difference.” The children choose the people they wish to read about from our two texts, one week a woman of faith, the next a man of faith. So far among the favorites have been Fanny Crosby, Martin Luther, Harriet Tubman, and Rev. Jesse Bushyhead.
Frequently, a craft or art project accompanies the lesson.
During the summer, the children are encouraged to come to worship with their parents. We welcome their sweet voices and occasional interruptions. Parents of infants or squirmy children may prefer the family-friendly balcony. Activity boxes are available from the Deacon on duty.
Note: All those who work with our children have a Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check and FBI Criminal History Background Check. Read more on PA’s standards here.
