Children and Family

Sunday School is in session for the elementary students (Grades K-5).   

We welcome you anytime.

How will our children learn to make ethical, moral decisions?  How will they encounter Life's wonder, awe, mystery and hope?  East Woods Presbyterian Church's Children's Ministry is committed to helping children build a joyous and loving relationship with God through knowing Jesus Christ and discovering God's Word in the Holy Bible.

It is our goal to excite, engage and instruct young disciples about the Word of God through age-appropriate activities, song, drama, crafts and games. Our teachers strive to connect with each child with compassion, gentleness and humility.  As children learn about God's teachings, they will discover their place in the church, how to apply these teachings to their lives and become true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Sunday School for K-5 Grade

Sunday School Direction

This year's central focus is to connect the children with corporate Sunday worship.  We want to help children develop a sense of deeper involvement and ownership around our worship liturgy and practices.  Worship happens when we praise God together.  Praise includes our petitions.

Worship is our gift to God.  More than this, worship involves giving God the honor God is due.  HONOR involves respect, gratitude and admiration; recognizing and embracing God as Creator, God's goodness, kindness and mercy, and God's most gracious gift of all, God's own Son, Jesus Christ.

Come join us this month and we celebrate worship with our children.

Elementary Students

Elementary students (K-Grade 2 and Grades 3-5) occupy their own classroom space. The Sunday school scope and sequence of lessons from the "We Believe" curriculum repeats every three years. In the fall we focus on worship.  In November we recount the Advent stories. Each Christmas the children present Lessons and Carols. The spring focuses on Jesus' ministry, death and resurrection.

Children's Choir

Children's Choir is a new addition to us here at East Woods Pres, and we are so excited to see this program set out! Any child is welcome to participate!  

Rehearsals are held the First Sunday of Each Month from 10:45 to 11:30am - during the 10:30am Service.  

Join us on the Second Sunday of each month to hear the children perform during the 10:30am Sunday Service.  


In Pre-School class youngsters age 3-5 enjoy role playing Bible characters. Using the "Wee Believe” curriculum of the Presbyterian Church (USA) with its colorful, age-appropriate and user- friendly activities, the children learn that each is A Child of God, loved by God, who is Creator of all the World and You and Me, too.
