Kids and Vacation Bible School

WORSHIP SERVICE

Children’s Bulletins are available each week which provide age appropriate activities and pictures to color. There is one bulletin for 4-6 year olds and another for 7-9 year olds. Activity Bags for young children may be picked up from behind the back row of chairs at the center entry to the sanctuary.

TODDLER CHURCH

This program during the worship service is for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. This is a teaching program with a prepared curriculum of stories and children’s videos/DVD’s, singing, activities and crafts. A snack is also provided. Children who participate in this program should be comfortable with being separated from parents/guardians for about an hour, as children are dismissed for Toddler Church about 15 minutes into the worship service. Each session is staffed by two trained volunteers from the church congregation.

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered to all, including children, at 9:45am before the 11am service. For children, Sunday School begins with all children in the fellowship hall for opening exercises. During this time the children sing Bible songs, practice for presentations to the congregation and learn about missions through the Compassion International child they sponsor. At approximately 10:00am the children move to their classrooms for age appropriate lessons taught by trained volunteers from among the church members. The curriculum used is from Great Commission Publications which presents the story of the gospel as presented throughout the entire Bible.

Infant Nursery Care

The nursery for infants and children under 2 years old operates during the worship services. The room is supplied with age appropriate toys and story books and a table and chairs. There is a crib in a separate small room for a sleeping baby. The nursery is staffed by volunteers, one of which must be a church member.

Vacation Bible School- Summer 2017, July 28-July 30

Grab your lab coats and put on your safety goggles everyone! We're heading off to the lab to learn about power. Nope, we won't be giving your kids a crash course in how to restructure the wiring in your house. Join us this summer as we explore God's Word and discover how Jesus gives us power to help others, live forever, and tell others about God. Through singing, crafts, Bible stories, games, snacks, and skits kids will learn that our power doesn't come from ourselves, but from God. Children ages 3 up through 6th grade are welcome to participate in our three day VBS program. See you at the lab!
July 28: 2-4pm
July 29: 4-6pm
July 30: 9:45-12:30pm
Registration forms available upon arrival. For more information please call: 585-593-5069

Working With Children

FROM OVERTURE 6 – GEORGIA FOOTHILLS PRESBYTERY
“CHILD PROTECTION IN THE PCA”

“All church leaders should become informed and take an active stance toward preventing child sexual abuse in the church by screening staff and volunteers, training them in child protection, and actively maintaining child protection policies pertaining to our obligations to love our children and protect their rightful interests as God’s image-bearers from the devastating actions of abusers (Matthew 18:5-6)."

Due to promptings from the PCA and our own Biblical mandate to protect children, we have currently updated our Child Protection Policies. If you would like a copy of our policies and code of conduct, please ask a member of the Session or our Child Protection Coordinator.
