Nurturing the faith begins with providing Nursery Care during the worship hour for the youngest among us (0-3 years of age). Through creative play, a story time, and loving attention, infants and toddlers learn about God's love, and come to feel at home with their church family.
Please Note: All among our rotating Nursery Care volunteers work in teams of 2, and undergo background checks, per our church's policy.
Children learn by worshiping with their church family, and we all begin our Sundays together for worship in the Meeting House. After a "Scripture Conversation" with the pastor, children Pre-K through Grade 5 are lead off to the Christian Education Building for Sunday School. A teaching team, including our Sunday School Coordinator, help to grow young faith through Bible lessons, games, song, craft, and FUN! Children also learn by serving. They take an active part in congregational outreach opportunities: making ornaments to sell at Spirit of Christmas to benefit Friendship House, assembling “Ditty Boxes” for the Seamen’s Center at the Port of Wilmington, and working on our Vacation Bible School mission projects. Sunday School children also give to our “Gift of Love” program, bringing a different nonperishable item each month, which is given to St. Peter’s Food Bank in New Castle.
ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES
We will continue our summer book group reading through this Fall, gathering in the evening each month for dinner and discussion. The book group is open to anyone who loves books, food, and exploring their faith in Christ! Our three books for the Fall are - When in Romans, Being Presbyterian in the Bible Belt, and Watch for the Light (readings for Advent and Christmas). We may meet weekly during Advent; meeting times will be listed in the newsletter.
LUNCH & LEARNS
Several times a year, a meal and program are offered after church on topics like: Memory Care, CPR Training, Mindfulness, Our Environment, and Stewardship.
