All are welcome at our church school program. We hold outdoor activities at this time.
For the month of May to mid-June: children will share in the beginning of the 10am outdoor services and then head off with adult leaders (parents are welcome to join!) and the journals they decorated in the beginning of May.
These outings will include: walking to the river, woods and churchyard to observe, draw and share about what we see, smell, feel. We will be incorporating Bible readings that speak to earth, justice, and art-related themes, along with other readings, music, and different forms of prayer (movement, visual art).
We will be inviting guests (artists, ecologists, social activists) from our community (church, town, parents also!) to share about their passion and how it relates to their own spirituality.
The Safe Church Policy: All children are protected at First Church by our Safe Church Policy. Children and families are invited to sign in at the start of church. All of our teachers and staff are screened for safety backgrounds, and are trained in the Safe Church principles of the United Church of Christ.
Our Whole Lives (OWL): First Church occasionally offers this comprehensive sexuality education program for high school students.
