Taking part in the celebration

Children help with special services: on Palm Sunday, Easter, Mother's Day, Christmas and more.

Teens on a Mission

Last summer, our church sent a youth team to the Dominican Republic to put in cement floors in homes that had only dirt floors before.

Lending a Hand

Church youth helped at the Soup Soiree, sponsored by It Takes a Village, a nonprofit that aims to help seniors remain independent in their homes.

Let's eat!

Picnics, pizzas, brunches, snacks, barbecue, dinners and more: we've got it covered!

Expanding their world

Organized outdoor sports, from snow tubing in winter to biking in summer, offer fun for all.

Sunday School at the Clock Church

The new year for Sunday School began September 11, 2016. Children, nursery-aged through 8th grade, are dismissed to Sunday School right after the Children's Message. There are four classrooms: 1) babies through age one; 2) two-year-olds through Pre-K; 3) grades K through fourth; 4) grades fifth through eighth.

Children two years old through fourth grade will be using the Dwell Curriculum. It teaches many of the Bible stories we all learned as children. Fifth through eighth grades will also use Dwell, along with the Common Lectionary. It is our hope that by time children reach the eighth grade our Sunday School program will have them well-versed in the stories of the Bible.

 

Music Program

This year we will incorporate music as a regular part of the Sunday School curriculum. The children love to sing with Mr. Jeremy! Jeremy, church music co-director, will work with children every week for the first few minutes of Sunday School. Learning to worship through music is a special expression of love for God! The congregation will get to hear them sing during worship throughout the year.

Also once a month (to be announced) children are invited to come to the sanctuary at 10 a.m. for 30 minutes of fun singing and praising God. Much like focusing on the stories of the Bible, we hope that children will learn songs to hold near and dear to their hearts.

 

Sunday School Mission Project

It is never to early to start our children thinking about those less fortunate than ourselves. Children of the Sunday School, in addition to supporting the local food pantry, will select two ministries/charities to support with their weekly offering. We'll announce the two selected ministries/charities for this year after the children decide.

Summer Sunday School 2016 at Old Dutch

<pSunday School season at the Clock Church traditionally ends on Father’s Day each June, when the congregation moves to Old Dutch Church for summer services at 10 a.m. Each summer, Bible lessons and nursery care are provided on the lawn of the Old Dutch Church. Nursery care, provided for infants and toddlers, is contained by a play yard fence and a person is hired for the summer. Bible lessons for elementary school children are shared under a tent. In the summer of 2016 we continued that arrangement. Middle School and High School children remained in the worship service.
Sunday School Bible lesson, teaching suggestions, and art materials were supplied, as always..


 

Preteen Art Project Helps Brighten Up the Community

Preteens Carly, Temper, Donovan, Zach and Oliver are looking ahead to summer, when these two Adirondack chairs, which they painted in colorful designs, will offer a place for passersby to rest and enjoy the outdoors. Thanks go to Chris Blatt, Neighborhood House art director, who obtained an art grant to paint chairs for the community. He invited our  parish preteens to paint  these two chairs.

Thanks, Subs!
