Crib and Crawl
Our Crib & Crawl is for youngsters 6 weeks up to 3 years of age. We work hard to ensure that our classroom is safe, clean, has a lot of toys to play with and staffed by loving volunteers. We thoroughly enjoy spending time with God’s littlest ones, loving them and watching them grow!
At First Presbyterian Church, kids and youth learn the truth about who God is and who they are because of Him. Our goal is to partner with parents to lead the next generation to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Loving teachers and assistants will greet students and work and play alongside them. Along with our loving teachers and assistants, students play, make crafts, hear Bible stories and learn about God’s love for them!
Children’s classes meet at 10:30 a.m. each week, mid-September through mid-June.
The Children’s Curriculum is based on the Rotation Model of Christian Education. If you are familiar with “Learning Centers” in school then you will recognize the rotation model. In addition to the curriculum, children are involved in mission projects that raise awareness of people in need.
Children are encouraged to participate in worship. The liturgy is structured such that children may participate in singing, prayer, and offering their gifts to God. There is also a time for them to receive a special message from the pastor before leaving for their classrooms. Several Sundays during the year, children are invited to participate in the sacrament of Communion with their parents as well as participate in worship through the leading of prayers, music and reading scripture.
During the summer, First Presbyterian, in conjunction with Camp Johnsonburg, offers a weeklong Summer Bible Camp (a.k.a. Vacation Bible School). Camp is held from 9 am until 3 pm and includes, worship, small groups, games and sports, arts and crafts, music and so much more.
