Each week as your family arrives for Sunday School, your children will be welcomed to a Gathering Time beginning at 8:50 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. During this time they sing Children’s songs of faith, welcome guests, and learn to praise God as they prepare to meet their teachers and move on to the classroom.
- Preschool Classes (Ages 3-5) Room 117
Using the Wee Believe curriculum from Presbyterian Publishing Company, our youngest children begin to learn that God loves them through the telling of Bible stories and age-appropriate music, games, and crafts.
- Early Elementary Children (K-1 Grades) Room 114
- Older Elementary Children (3rd– 4th Grades) Room 115
Through the use of a variety of learning style activities, children in our Spring 2014 classes will focus on the events of the transfiguration and Holy Week during the sessions in Lent and then spreading the message to the world. Using stories, games and crafts, children will have the opportunity to explore the Bible lessons with age appropriate activities
Where Faith and Fun Flourish!
Summer Camps for Kids
Our children are very fortunate to have one of the PCUSA’s top camp facilities just an hour away. Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center, located just outside Little Rock offers camping opportunities for children in 1st through 12th grades. There’s even a Family Camp to allow families to spend a few days together and expose their children to the fun of summer camp. Campers are housed in air conditioned cabins with bunk beds and showers. Activities at the camp include swimming, exploring, canoeing, archery games, arts and crafts, and hiking. As an incentive to families to participate in Ferncliff, we offer a $100 scholarship to offset the cost of camp for each child that enrolls. Follow the Ferncliff link to see the many camps available now!

Calvin’s Kids Bible Club
A familiarity of the Bible, how to find a scripture in the Bible and a basic knowledge of Old and New Testament stories and where to find them are all part of the goals set for Calvin’s Kids. Using games, music, and study, Calvin’s Kids have fun learning the Books of the Bible. The Lord’s Prayer, the Doxology, and about the seasons of the church year. Beginning this Fall, two levels of club meetings will be offered, one for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grades and a second club for 3rd through 5th grades. Help equip your child to open the scripture for life. Meeting times will be announced in August.
