SUNDAY SCHOOL 

We have Sunday School classes for ages 3-Senior High. Children under 3 are invited to learn and explore in our nursery.

Sunday School for students ages 3 - 12 grade will be held 9:30-10:30 a.m. Children (with parents' help) should check in at the Sunday School desk in the narthex before they go to worship. Children begin worship with their families at 9:15 in the sanctuary then, following the children’s message, they will be dismissed to go with their teachers to their classrooms. If you have a child who is 3 years old - 2nd grade, you will need to come to his/her room at 10:30 a.m. to pick up the child. The teachers in these classes will not release the children. They must be picked up at their classroom.

On the 1st Sunday of each month, children will worship at 9:15 with their families; there will not be separate Sunday School on those Sundays. Following the service, the congregation will be invited to participate in our "Share the Love" Mission Project.

Share the Love Sunday

 There is no Sunday School on the first Sunday of each month, “Share the Love Sunday." Students will attend worship, 9:15-10 a.m., and communion instead of separate Sunday School classes on those Sundays and participate with the congregation in a mission project at 10 a.m. following the 9:15 service.

 

 

 Third and Fourth Graders Received Bibles

On September 23, 2018 our third and fourth graders received Bibles from the congregation. They will use the Bibles in Sunday School as they learn about the Bible itself, how it is set up, the books of the Bible and, of course, the Word of God.

Sunday School Offering

Each Sunday School class collects an offering every week as a way to teach our students the importance of showing our love to our neighbors wherever they may be. The offerings for the first quarter of 2018-2019 will go to the Garden City Food pantry to bless our nearby neighbors.

 

Safe Sanctuary Clearances

Volunteers working with children and youth need to have Act33 and Act34 clearances updated every five years. There is no charge for these clearances for volunteers. Information on obtaining clearances is in the church hallway, on the shelf by the nursery. Justin, Director of Christian Discipleship, has forms to mail in if you prefer not to do the forms online.

 

  

 

Children’s Library!

Did you know we have a children’s library where you can borrow Christian children’s books and DVDs? We have a new collection of Veggie Tales and Hermie DVDs, as well as, some new children’s books and Bible story books! Thank you to Tina and Allie Klein for their recent work to update our library. “Check out” our children’s library by the Sunday School desk downstairs. .

Nursery

The nursery is open and staffed  with two nursery attendants every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The nursery  is available for infants from six weeks of age through children who are two  years old. Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment  for your child so that you may have peace of mind while you worship and attend  Sunday School.  Children must be signed in and signed out of the nursery. An  electronic paging system summons parents when necessary. We use sanitary  procedures for diaper changes and toys are washed and sanitized at the end of  the day.  Our attendants are  screened with criminal background checks and child abuse clearances in  compliance with MUM’s Safe Sanctuary program.

Safe Sanctuary Change

PA House Bill 435 was signed into law to increase protection for children and youth in Pennsylvania. This law requires all volunteers working with children and youth to have the following two clearances: The PA Criminal Record Check (Act 34) and the PA Child Abuse Clearance (Act 33). The new law requires updates to clearances every three years.

Our policy is to require both clearances for all volunteers working with children and youth and for all church staff members and to require the clearances to be updated every three years. Staff members will all be required to also get FBI clearances, as will new volunteers from out of sate.

We take our responsibility for the safety of our children and youth very seriously. To see our entire Safe Sanctuary Policy, click on the Safe Sanctuary tab under Children and Youth.

To find out how to get your clearances for free, please contact Justin Boothby, Director of Christian Discipleship, at 412-372-7474 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
