Sunday School Begins September 13; New Music Program for Kids
Along with the beginning of the school year, Pilgrim’s educational activities for children and youth are starting up. September 13 is Gathering Sunday when Sunday School classes begin. This year we have two classes: one for children ages 4-2nd grade and the other for children 3rd-6th grade. Both classes encourage children to learn stories from the Bible. The younger class uses Godly Play and the older class focuses its attention on Jesus and His Kingdom of Equals. These curricula were chosen because they teach Biblical stories, engage children in age appropriate critical thinking, and emphasize issues of social justice as well as personal spirituality. Classes meet during the worship service.
Make a Joyful Noise is a new program at Pilgrim designed for children ages 5-10. Not a church choir, this weekday program is an integrated approach to music using songs, percussion, movement and stories. The class meets on Wednesdays at 6:00.
Sunday School and Make a Joyful Noise is open to Pilgrim members and non-members. For more information, contact the church office at 724-8503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
