Church School (Pre-K - 12th Grade)

The United Parish Church School is for children from pre-school through 12th grade. Children in these classes learn bible basics, stories from the Christian tradition, and explore some of the Big Questions of our faith in age-appropriate ways.


FALL 2020 UPDATE: Our curriculum this fall is a carefully curated conglomeration of resources, lesson plans, and activities crafted to meet the needs we heard from our United Parish parents. You’ll also notice that our calendar is designed around an all-but-entirely remote year. If, during the year, our staff and reopening task force deem it safe to begin in-person church school classes, we will announce and adapt as necessary. Most, if not all, of the lessons we’ve selected are able to be easily facilitated in person.

Preschool and Kindergarten: Life with a toddler is unpredictable enough; we are not going to add Zoom classrooms to the mix! Instead, our Pastoral, Music, and Nursery staff, along with our Preschool and Kindergarten church school teachers, will be creating short videos for you to watch with your little ones whenever you have 10 minutes to spare (before bed, during snack or lunch time, when you need to get the wiggles out on a rainy day…). These videos will include song, story, ritual, and prayer, offered by familiar faces and filmed in familiar settings.

Elementary: Our Elementary curriculum this year is a hybrid (you’re likely hearing that word a lot lately) of both Zoom-based lessons, virtual check-ins with teachers and classmates, and activities that families can do together at home, as you have the time/energy, the materials and instructions for which will be provided for you in monthly care packages that can be picked up from the church, or delivered to your home.
