Children

Sunday School: The consistory being convinced that our children need to know, love, and serve our Lord Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37-40) sees the need to continually educate our covenantal children in the Scripture. (Proverbs 22:6). In order to promote, encourage, and structure the training of our children the consistory mandates the Sunday School Committee to:

  • provide Biblical instruction to the children on Sundays following a worship service
  • organize the various classes according to age
  • organize special programs in December and at the end of the season before the summer break.

Sunday school classes meet after the morning service for 45 minutes. There are, in total, five classes that range in age for all to learn.

  • Nursery Class: Preschool to Kindergarten (Ages 3-5 and 6 if still in Kindergarten)
  • Intermediate Sunday School: Grades 1 – 4
  • Senior Sunday School: Grades 5 – 8
  • Catechism Class: Grades 9 – 12

And tell His glorious praise abroad,
Who holds our soul in life,
Who never lets our feet be move
And, though our faith He oft has proved,
Upholds us in the strife.

And mercy He bestows.

Consider the following...

For encouragement in the midst of this duty, Job’s pattern also makes it clear that diligent spiritual leadership in the home can produce a happy, harmonious family. Job’s family seems to have been a cheerful, close knit bunch. Given that Job’s wife later told her husband to curse God and die, the happiness of the family was probably not her doing.
