Our children join the first part of the 9am Sunday service which includes a Moment with the Children piece. The children are then escorted for Children’s Education, taught by Jennifer Peck our Children’s Religious Education Teacher.
Currently, we are using the Joyful Path to learn about the faith and spirituality together. We read stories together, read excerpts from the Bible and other spiritual books, discuss stories, have activities, and engage in conversations about what these stories mean to each of us. We discuss how they might help us to grow and become the best versions of ourselves in school and with friends and when alone. We strive to allow the children to grow and explore the stories, books, and the path of Jesus’s goodness and kindness through their own words and experiences.
We welcome those on all Paths, and while we focus on the example of Jesus, we also explore and accept all those on the Path of Love and Peace.
All Are Welcome.
Summer Vacation Bible School takes place each summer in Orange. It’s free and supported by the Churches of Orange (INC).
PRAY Program Details:
Children must attend all sessions for their coursework (or complete during make up dates) and participate in Group Circle with the Minister. Badges are awarded during Sunday Service.
The age appropriate workbook is included for each child who attends. Pins are awarded after all assignments are completed under the supervision of Jennifer (Religious Education Leader) and each child takes part in the Group Circle with Charlotte. These badges meet the requirements of Boys and Girls Scouts of America and American Heritage Girls (you do not have to be a member of our Church to earn your badges; you are welcome to attend the sessions required to earn your badges).
These badges help us to guide our children to take on age appropriate duties of the church as active members of our community.
We will be offering the Grades 6-8 and High School Level PRAY program in the future. Please contact us if you are interested.
Donations are accepted to cover materials and parties, but not required.
Please check dates to be certain you can attend all sessions (or make up for each lesson) and final circle with minister and award ceremony. Please contact Jennifer (or Charlotte) if there is a scheduling conflict.
