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 Linda Wells, our Religious Education Teacher. We offer a progressive Christian-based approach to our children’s education using the Joyful Path curriculum , The Holy Bible and The Shine On series dedicated to teaching our youth.
Summer Vacation Bible School takes place in July at the Mission Covenant Church. It’s free and supported by the Churches of Orange.
Children’s Moment (November): Our children are most grateful this season for family, friends, home, and church. They are looking forward to the countdown with Advent calendars and love pies and turkey and skeeball!!!

Does this remind you of someone you know?
She reminds me of Dorcas. The woman who inspires our Dorcas group. A woman who was kind and worked hard giving back to her friends, the poor, and others in need. Just like the people in our church.
