Children

Elementary age children reading Bibles in Sunday School.
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 9:29 10:20 upstairs for elementary age 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 Together is an intergenerational Sunday School for adults and all children in elementary school. 

Intergenerational relationships have been a key component in the life of the church for a long time. We read in the book of Acts (chapter 2, verse 42) about the start of the church: “The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers.” 

This scripture shows us all four components: 

  • The first component of the first church is Bible study.
  • The second component is fellowship.
  • The third component is relationships built around the table and eating together.
  • The fourth component is prayer and praising God.

Faith Together begins with a gathering time and moves through the four components, with all parts connected by a common theme. In our class, it will be the movements of: 

  • Breaking bread together with a snack and conversation. 
  • Studying God’s Word together, reading Scripture and having a cross generational discussion about what the Bible is saying to us. 
  • Engaging together, in many shapes and forms. We may craft, play a game, learn a new skill…What is important is that we are doing these things TOGETHER. 
  • Praying together, through many styles and ways.
