Children

At CPC, our goal is to bring up children knowing, loving and living out the Good News of Jesus Christ.

All children’s Sunday School classes meet in the Christian Education wing on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45 – upstairs for elementary age groups and downstairs for preschool classes.

CPC is committed to providing a safe and warm environment as children develop relationships with God, the church, and each other through Biblical learning and spiritual encouragement. Each Sunday school class is led by prepared adult volunteers who lovingly teach the stories of the Bible and how to practice the Christian life.

Our teachers use the Growing in Grace and Gratitude curriculum which includes learning the major stories from the Bible through story-time and crafts. A snack also is served. Growing in Grace and Gratitude is rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity that God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship. This invitation to discipleship inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love, and to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace.

Faith Journey is our name for the Workshop Rotation Model of Sunday School for children in grades 1-5. Rotation workshops encourage children to “learn by doing.” It is a hands-on, experience-based and FUN approach to learning the Bible and applying it to our lives! 

Each Sunday at 9:45 am, children gather in the “Faith Hall of Fame” – upstairs in the Education wing – to share good news from the week, learn a memory verse, sing, and pray together. At 10:00 am, children go with their own age group and their “shepherds” (nurturing adults who oversee their age group) and together they jump into their morning workshop activities! A yearly theme includes seven distinct units of Bible stories or church themes taught during the year. We invite you to join us on this exciting Faith Journey!

For each unit, children rotate through three to five workshops that include: computer, science, cooking, video, drama & puppets, storytelling, games and art.

Faith Journey groups are generally divided by grade, based on class sizes.

  • 1st grade – Hikers
  • 2nd grade – Trekkers
  • 3rd grade – Climbers
  • 4th grade – Trail Blazers
  • 5th grade – Pathfinders
