Learning for Children and Youth
Faith formation is a journey. The United Church of Christ-Congregational nurtures spiritual growth, encourages growth in the understanding of God through Christ and His teachings, and encourages faithfulness through outreach. All people are valued as unique and special children of God.

Preschool children discover how they are special in the eyes of God through play and art activities. Sunday School begins in the parlor (located off the sanctuary) for a time of singing and prayers.
Pre-kindergarten through 7th Grade
Olde Town rotation workshop is a multi-dimensional approach to faith learning. Children and youth spend several Sundays learning one Bible story through art, drama, music, dance, computers, and stories. Children discover how the story applies to their lives. As the sign reads: Welcome to Olde Town - A Place to Grow in Faith Together. Sunday School begins in the parlor (located off the sanctuary) for a time of singing and prayers.
Youth 8th through 12th Grades
Youth meet in the youth room each week for discussion, prayer, and spiritual growth.
Wednesday Youth Group
