Education > Sunday School
Our children are an important part of the Hope Presbyterian Church family. They are our youngest disciples, learning Bible teachings and how to integrate what they learn into their day-to-day lives.
On Sunday mornings, children join their parents in the 9:00 worship service. They are active participants with the acolyte assignments of lighting the candles on the communion table and bringing forth the Bible and placing it on the communion table. They proceed downstairs to Sunday School with their teachers when the congregation is sharing the Passing of the Peace.
Students are divided into two multi-age classes spanning nursery through grade 8. The younger class utilizes the Growing in Grace and Gratitude curriculum from PCUSA, which encompasses biblical teachings, crafts and learning games. The older class (grades 3-8) utilizes many resources, namely Faith Question Simple Sundays from PCUSA, internet supplements, mission direction, and community outreach. The students remain in church on the first Sunday of the month and receive communion.
Each year our Sunday School participates in a Back To School Blessing. The community is invited to participate and all are asked to bring their backpacks to service. All who are involved with students and teaching are invited to come forward at the end of the service. Special blessings are given to them and they receive a written blessing, to begin the school year reminded of the Lords love.
World Communion Sunday at Hope involves our children as active participants in the service. They prepare and bring forth the elements, lead the congregation in prayer, and offer communion to all.
Our Sunday School children are a blessing to Hope and they continue to learn how they can be a blessing to others.
