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 – Sunday for Kids
Nursery – Infants-K – Our infant, toddler 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 in the lower level of the North wing of the sanctuary building.
Elementary Education – Grade 1-5 – 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.
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.
