Church School (Pre-K thru 5th Grade)
The United Parish Church School is for children from pre-school to fifth grade. Children in these classes learn bible basics and explore the mystery and meaning of Scripture that mirrors the bible passages that pastors will preach upon in service. Our curriculum—Deep Blue Kids—seeks to empower, inspire, nurture and equip all God’s children.

On their Winter Retreat last weekend, our Youth Choir and Carolers began the creative task of staging portions of “March,” their dramatic presentation examining a history of oppression, from biblical and American slavery, to the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements.
As the presentation will center around acts of Godly protest, one of the first tasks the children accomplished was the making of their own protest signs, pictured below. What poignant messages come from the minds of our little ones!
They also practiced, and created their own words for protest songs from the Civil Rights Movement, tying the thread of oppression through the millennia in language we can all understand.
On Sunday, February 12, the children and youth choirs and church schoolers will offer this dramatization in worship @ 11am in the Sanctuary. Come watch and experience their creative understanding of our history, unfolding in scripture, song, and story.
Special thanks to Merle P., David R., and Deb W., without whom none of this would be possible!
