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.

Looking for a way to use your gifts, and stay young at heart? Need a laugh or a poignant moment in your week? Consider teaching church school! We need teachers for our 1st-2nd (8 children), 3rd-4th (6 children), 5th-6th (9 children), and 7th-8th grade (9 children) classes for the 2019-2020 school year! Teachers serve on teams of 3 or 4, and rotate between being lead teacher, assistant teacher, and having the morning off. If you can't commit to teaching throughout the year, consider 'donating' 4 Sundays of your time during the Epiphany Term, and share a special skill or activity as a way of engaging in our faith (dance, painting, sign-language, baking, etc.) Email Pastor Amy (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or to sign up!
