Here at Mount Vernon, children participate in every aspect of our church community. Through Christian education, service projects, outreach opportunities, and fellowship, children learn to love God and love others as God loves them. By working together with their family, we strive to encourage children to:
- Grow in faith
- Know they are loved as children of God and important to this congregation
- Identify their own gifts as we grow in relationship with each other and with God
10:00 – THIS/NEXTSunday for Kids
Nursery – Birth to Age 4 – Our infant, toddler and two’s classes hear Bible stories, sing and play. We strive to provide two childcare workers in each room. Our youngest children receive loving care in the nursery and toddler rooms (119 and 120) in the lower level of the North wing of the sanctuary building.
Elementary Education – Preschool to Grade 5 – These lessons are designed to enrich your child’s faith as each session builds upon what we experience in worship. Each Sunday children explore the weekly Bible story through interactive activities. Children also participate in service opportunities encouraging them to reach out to others in their community.
Vacation Bible School
Every Summer MVPC opens its doors and hosts Vacation Bible School for children Pre-K to 5th grade. It is always a wonderful 4 days of fun with bible stories, games, projects and snacks.
The MVPC Youth program is designed to give all 6th-12th grade students a chance to explore, deepen, and express their faith. Friends are always welcome as we figure out together what it means to follow God in today’s world through Sunday morning age-appropriate Bible study. Confirmation Class is offered for those who wish to know more about membership in the Presbyterian Church and what exactly that means.
THISunday is what we call the 10:00am educational/experiential component of our Sunday mornings. (We call it NEXTSunday when we are talking about next Sunday). Each week we have one scripture passage and a theme that guides our activities in worship and study. At 10:00am, Bible Studies are offered for every age group following the curriculum, Feasting on the Word. Adults also have one or two other course options for the day that might be informal discussion; a guest speaker; or something more active, like walking a meditation labyrinth or participating in some service project. Each day stands on its own with its particular theme, so even if you missed being here last Sunday, you will not be behind THISunday.
