Children’s Education

EDUCATION AND MINISTRY FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN
Bridgeport Presbyterian Church strongly believes that teaching God’s Word and modeling His love is of great importance in its mission to the church family. During the church school hour that follows our worship service each Sunday, classes for all our younger folks are held in the classrooms that line the hallway leading to the fellowship hall. Infants are given large doses of TLC by caring adults; Mom and Dad are encouraged to attend their own class. The Toddler/Two Year Old class hears stories of God’s amazing work in the world and begins to feel the security of belonging to a church family. Preschool children experience Bible stories, music and crafts; an occasional Bible verse is memorized, as well. The elementary class filled with children in grades 1 – 5 is also a place where Bible stories are retold and craft time is enjoyed.
Once a month, Kids Klub meets on a Sunday afternoon. This is an opportunity for children aged 5 – 5th grade to participate in a fellowship group. At times, the children make cards and crafts for our older members who are unable to attend church on a regular basis. At other times, the children enjoy a swim party at the YMCA, a bowling party or a roller skating party. The goal of the group’s leaders is to present a blend of service projects and social activities.
