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.
