Even though the “regular” groups and events below are not taking place due to Covid-19, please use the links to see what Children’s Ministry at UPC includes in non-pandemic days!
Parents of Young Presbyterians (PYPs) – The PYPs, Parents of Young Presbyterians, meet throughout the year to encourage and support one another on the adventure of faithful parenting, to help parents ask and answer the tough questions that come with raising a family, and to have fun!
Sunday School – How do we pass along our faith and tradition to our children? How can we be sure we are laying a foundation that will sustain and encourage them for years to come?
Kirk Club – This group for 4th and 5th graders includes time for snack, fellowship, recreation, and a lesson tailored to the needs of this age group. These young people learn how to approach their faith in new ways as they engage in thought-provoking discussions, wrestle with deeper questions, and grow in community with one another.
Godly Play – This worship program is intended for children who are age four through kindergarten. A storyteller uses simple, beautiful materials to illustrate the story and to engage imagination. The structure of Godly Play and the classroom itself offers children a safe space to explore, wonder, and worship.
Nursery – UPC employs paid Nursery Caregivers in addition to two Nursery Coordinators to provide the consistency and dependability needed for our infants and young children.
