“Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness…” Mother Teresa
A nursery is available on first floor for our infants and toddlers. Our little ones are learning about God’s love and care with Frolic.
The Children’s class meets upstairs at the end of the hall on the right. The class is taught by Donna Merguc, Tara Malcomb and Peggy Young. Their curriculum is Growing In Grace and Gratitude. The children have the opportunity to hear Bible stories in a variety of ways and reflect on the "grace moments" found there. They find grace moments in knowing that God makes and keeps promises.
The youth (grades six through twelve) meet upstairs at the left end of the hall. Mark and Kathi Curtis with Julie Hartman and Kristi Sutphin, lead Faith Talk discussions. The adventure begins the questions.
Children in kindergarten and preschool may attend Wee Church in the nursery following the time for young disciples during worship.
Our adult Sunday school class began a new six week study which already promises to go a few weeks longer. Join us in the parlor for lively discussions about confirmation, the historical context, and what it means for the church today. Ina Armstrong and Kathryn Maddy teach Exploring Confirmation: Embraced By and Embracing the Covenant, (yes, PPC renamed the curriculum) a workbook that will prepare our congregation for the journey with a new confirmation class. The church will provide the workbooks for the class.
The Wired Word is an online adult Sunday school curriculum with weekly lessons that confront the news with scripture and hope. It is available weekly to our congregation through subscription. If you would like to receive it via email, contact the office.
Wednesday Night Live!
