First Presbyterian Church of Chittenango

WELCOME BACK! IT'S SUNDAY SCHOOL TIME! (Sunday mornings) 

We look forward to seeing everyone and having a special time together learning about God and His Word.

Sundays - 10:15-11:15 a.m.

EDUCATION

Sunday School classes are offered for children of all ages every Sunday at 10:15 am, September through June. Our classes follow the Lifeway “Bible Studies for Life” curriculum. We value each child and family that comes to our church. We encourage children to have a personal relationship with God. We believe it is important to support children spiritually at home as well as at church so parents can be involved in their learning.

Kindergarten - 3rd Grade: Diane Brandt
In this class children learn bible stories through story time and hands-on learning. They also spend time learning songs of praise with Linda Curtis, our music leader.

4th & 5th Grade: Deb Russell & Todd Russell
At this level, students study bible stories in depth and learn the books of the bible and bible verses. Students start to apply biblical concepts to life. Students learn about helping others and giving back to the community.

Middle School & High School: Lillian Purdy & John Button
Students in this class dig deeper into the meaning of scripture and learn how to apply it to their own daily lives. They are encouraged to focus on their spiritual journey through engaging conversations and personal reflection.

Children’s Church

After the Children’s Message during our regular Sunday worship service, children of all ages are invited to the library for Children’s Church. Our volunteers make the scripture lessons covered in worship that Sunday relevant to our young people in a fun and educational manner. Everyone is welcome to join us!

FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

We like to have fun! Some of the fellowship activities we hold throughout the year are: sleepovers, movie & game night, Pizza with the Pastor, Ice Cream Sundae Sunday, Cropwalk, Christmas caroling, Christmas play, cards for Veterans and shut-ins.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

A 5 day event housed at the First Presbyterian Church and co-sponsored by all the local churches, this VBS rocks! Through drama, games, catchy tunes, crafts, and speakers who give a kids' talk, children grades pre-school through 6th grade love learning what God is all about. With a staff of about 100 volunteers, and an enrollment of about 160 kids, VBS is into giving each child lots of personal attention and God's good lovin'.
